The Summit Rainforest Retreat: can be booked as a fully self contained 3 or 5 bedroom holiday house sleeping up to 16 people and featuring an inground pool and open fire place on the deck or can be booked as a 1 bedroom apartment (sleeps 4) in a luxurious, “nature lovers” setting. The Retreat is located in Atherton which is a 1 hours drive from Cairns, it's at a higher altitude so the climate is also different. We call it natural air conditioning for a natural Wonderland.

Ideal for singles, couples, families, groups, multiple couples, weddings, conferences, meetings & seminars etc. Packages for accommodation and conferences are available, so that you can mix business with pleasure.

Atherton and The Summit are at the heart of all the Atherton Tablelands/Cairns Highlands Attractions & Activities. Nothing is more than a 30 min drive, you are very central.

The Summit Rainforest Retreat is unique, in its quality, the number of guests it can cater for, its position and the native fauna & flora that surrounds it. An exceptional bed & breakfast, holiday house and conference room on the Atherton Tablelands.

About this location

The Queensland region

Overview

The “Atherton Tablelands” or “Cairns Highlands”, situated close to Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef, the Waterfalls and Crater Lake District is a wonderful place to spend some time in Far North Queensland.

Townships in the Tablelands region include: Atherton, Mareeba, Herberton, Millaa Millaa, Ravenshoe, Yungaburra and Malanda.

With an annual rainfall of around 1400mm, Atherton (The most central town), and its immediate district, are a lovely tropical green. The towns and villages of the Atherton Tablelands boast a tropical atmosphere and close knit community spirit. Naturally air-conditioned, being an average 700 metres above sea level the district is free of coastal humidity and high temperatures. The perfect summer retreat, but still close to coastal attractions. Residents boast that they are blessed with the best weather in the world. With winter getting an occasional helping of early morning frost and the daily temperature around a perfect 21 degrees Celsius.

An ideal position to base yourself. Visit the crater lakes, world heritage rainforest, waterfalls and historical areas. You can even explore further west, out to the Gulf Savannah and other Outback areas.

Atherton

Atherton

Is a picturesque town right in the heart of Atherton shire. It is also the Tableland's major commerce centre. Most major roads crossing the Tablelands come through Atherton, making it an ideal base on the Tablelands to start your exploring. The Jazz Festival is held annually in July and attracts jazz lovers from all over Australia. Every September, the town hosts the Maize festival, with street processions and a gala ball.

The area is an ecological wonderland of delight for the traveller. Boasting modern facilities it is also able to provide an abundance of native fauna and flora, one of the most diverse regions in Australia.
