The Summit B&B - Atherton Tablelands.
B&B | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
The Summit B&B is a four-bedroom "Queenslander", with a wide inviting deck on three sides, giving panoramic views from all rooms. Situated next to an Environmental Park and surrounded by Mabi Rainforest, privacy from neighbours is assured and native wildlife abounds. The Summit B&B is situated in Atherton, on the Atherton Tablelands, approximately 1 hours drive from Cairns. It is a region of higher altitude hence a different climate to the coast. We call it naural air conditioning for a natural Wonderland.
Constructed and opened in August 2008, it is our new establishment, The Summit B&B (a separate construction to The Summit Rainforest Retreat), is available to be booked. Built in the classic "Queenslander" style, with all rooms having access to a wide inviting deck, through French doors, it is self contained and "non hosted". The Summit B&B can be booked on a B&B room basis, or as an entire house (sleeps 10). The facilities include a heated pool & spa with waterfall feature, 3 ensuited bedrooms, full kitchen & laundromat, panoramic views, centrally heated and cooled, Austar satellite TV in all bedrooms and a beautiful lounge area with bay windows.
There are three bedrooms - the "Bandicoot", "Pademelon" & "Wallaby" rooms, all of which have private ensuites. The rooms are configured with king beds that can be split for twin share. The Pademelon bedroom, has an interconnecting ensuite into two rooms, each with a king that can be split for twin share - suitable for a family of 4 or 2 singles or 2 couples that know each other, who want separate rooms, but who do not require the full cost of 2 rooms with 2 ensuites. An extra pp charge on top of the normal one room charge is applicable for the Pademelon rooms. These rooms can be booked as a B&B option if you wish. When this happens the entire house is not possible to book.
Rainforest walks are at your back door, spotlighting at night is a feature, while native pademelons, tree kangaroos and wallabies feed at your feet. The panoramic views, as you relax or entertain, are stunning.

The Queensland region
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.
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.

This is a gorgeous property. We were lucky enough to have the whole place to ourselves. There are four bedroom, would be great for a couples retreat or family get away. The views are absolutely fabulo… More
Thank you Tanya for your positive feedback, we feel that this property is very special, purpose built and only 6 yrs old. Khans Curries is an excellent "take away" option in Atherton, use the cutlery from the fully decked out kitchen, the furniture on the deck outside your room, relax and take in the view and sunset.We hope the rest of your trip was enjoyable, thanks for staying with us.

"Beware of the fire alarm system"
Being an ex Victorian Fire Fighter l was not happy to see that all the smoke alarms in the Summit Guest House had been disconnected. No excesses for this and it is against the law to rent rooms withou… More
Thank you Michael for your comments. We speak to our local fire guys when we have a problem with our alarms and it would have been nice if you had spoken to us about your concerns. Nuisance alarms are a problem for accommodation houses as guests don't like it when it happens and complain. The local fire personal are always happy to help with ideas and solutions, you happen to have stayed during one of these times, we'll continue to work on a solution.B&B's require all guests to treat each other with respect, especially in relation to noise. The guests who stayed the night you were at The Summit B&B had been asked not to work in the area that your talking about, they chose to do so (without our knowledge), which is disrespectful to you, but out of our control.We'll continue to do our best and provide the best experience that we can for those who stay with us. cheers.
