Barking Owl Retreat is centrally located on the Atherton tablelands at the end of a country road near the Kairi township 6mins, on the edge of the Atherton Tableland Golden Triangle, outside the highland drizzle and just over an hours self-drive from the Cairns Airport, Tropical Far North Queensland Australia. We are privileged to be just minutes away from Wineries, Coffee Plantations, Wildlife viewing, and many more local Atherton Tablelands Tours and naturally beautiful Atherton Tablelands Attractions. The map shows our accommodation is only a short drive from the historical village of Yungaburra 15mins known for their famous Markets & Fine Dining, minutes from Lake Tinaroo Dam 8mins for Water Sports, Wake Boarding, Skiing, & Barra Fishing and boats and trailers are welcome. For shopping supplies we are close to the Tablelands main township of Atherton 12mins which has Big W, Woolworths, a huge IGA, MacDonalds, KFC, Subway, Crystal Caves, & more. We are also not too far from Lake Eacham 21mins the Crater Lake popular for swimming, picnics, bbqs, and walking track. And next to Tolga 7mins where there is great pub meals at the Tolga Hotel. Local produce Gallo's Cheese and Chocolate Factory 20mins is definitely worth the drive. Mareeba 25mins is also not too far a drive where you can experience the Coffeeworks and much more. Historic Village Herberton 30mins drive and requires a whole day! With so much to offer the Atherton Tablelands is no longer just a day trip, so ensure you book enough days holiday here to see all of this beautiful special place.
