Sitting on the banks of Lake Tinaroo, about an hour west of Cairns is the Lake Tinaroo Holiday Park. A gem in the heart on the Atherton Tablelands.
The property sprawls across 17 acres with a multitude of cabins, powered and unpowered sites as well as caravan sites – accommodation for anyone’s taste.
Park manager Lachlan wouldn’t want to be anywhere else, just ask him!
“Lots of people see the nearest city Cairns as a really laid back town, but if you actually head up the range to the Atherton Tablelands and come to Tinaroo, it’s even slower. So, yeah, it’s just a really laid-back vibe. everyone is a holiday up here.”
There is plenty to explore around the Atherton Tablelands itself, however many of the Lake Tinaroo Holiday Park guests come to fish for the mighty Barra that live below the surface of the lake. Renowned as THE spot in north Queensland for BIG barra it’s not uncommon to see the boat ramp bustling every morning, as anglers young and old head out to try and land a trophy fish.
