So most visitors to Tropical North Queensland come for the reef, the rainforest, and the beaches. But if your idea of a good time is scrambling around in the dirt, scratching for stones... well, we can help you there too! The Atherton Tablelands, just inland of Cairns, offer some worthwhile fossicking sites. And once you're there, you're already on the edge of the great Northern Outback, famed for its underground treasures.
