Get your mates together for the pub crawl of a lifetime! Departing Cairns Airport, you'll take to the skies to taste and explore the best that the Atherton Tablelands has to offer. The first stop of the day is the Mountain View Hotel, a quintessential country pub situated on Gillies Highway at the start of the range. Next, you'll cross lush rainforest and the stunning Crater Lakes National Park to arrive at pub number two, the historic Peeramon Hotel - the oldest on the Tablelands. Marvel at the 17,000 year old Lake Barrine and Lake Eacham before blowing the froth off a few cold ones!
Ascend to reach the third establishment and soar over Lake Tinaroo, before landing at Mt. Uncle Distillery. Delight your taste buds with a tasting of premium spirits and liqueurs and perhaps hit up the The Bridges Bar and Restaurant next door for a tasty lunch. Airborne again, you'll head towards your final stop, The Billabong in Kuranda. Nestled amongst pristine tropical rainforest, sip on an iconic Aussie beer and savour the views of eucalypt woodlands from the expansive deck overlooking the water.
