Location Information

One hour - yet a million miles - from Cairns, on the Atherton Tablelands is the village of Yungaburra. It's a pretty heritage township established in 1890, filled with charming original buildings and genuinely welcoming locals.

It's both small enough to walk all around, and large enough to cater for the needs of all its visitors; as well as international class art and craft galleries, the beautifully grand Lake Eacham Hotel and delightful eateries.

Yungaburra is a great place to base yourself to explore the beautiful Crater Lakes, Waterfalls and natural beauty of the Atherton Tablelands.
