Yungaburra  Queensland

Yungaburra, on the Atherton Tableland in North Queensland, is an attractive National Heritage-listed village which has seen little change since its heyday in the early 1900s. Its streets are lined with wide verandahs and heritage shop fronts, now mainly occupied by craft shops, galleries, cafes and restaurants.

The historic Lake Eacham Hotel, fondly known as the Yungaburra Pub, takes its given name from the neighbouring lake and National Park. Stop and have a drink here for a touch of nostalgia - and you might even catch a glimpse of the resident ghost.

The Atherton Tablelands is generally milder than down on the coast around Cairns, with summer temperatures around 28 degrees Celsius and winter temperatures around 23 degrees Celsius, with most rain falling between the months of December and April.

Not far from Yungaburra, Lake Eacham is a volcanic crater lake where the lush, tropical highland forest descends right down to the crystal clear water. Nearby, Lake Barrine is also a crater lake where a cruise boat operates.

Man-made Lake Tinaroo was formed by the damming of the Barron River and offers a range of watersports options. Fishing is huge here - the Barra Bash is held in the waters of the lake each year, with a record-breaking barramundi catch always a possibility.

With its small but high-class range of boutique restaurants and its cool mountain climate, Yungaburra is an idyllic base from which to explore the surrounding crater lakes, waterfalls and rainforest. Pride of the natural wonders is the famous curtain fig tree whose veil of aerial roots trails 15m to the forest floor.

Festivals: Yungaburra Folk Festival (Oct), Lake Tinaroo Barra Bash (Oct)
