Experience the feeling of remoteness on 150 acres, and leave the world and daily stresses behind without sacrificing luxury and the creature comforts the secluded lodges provide. The local Tolga village & Atherton township are just a short drive away.

From your Atherton Tableland accommodation at Allawah Retreat (aboriginal meaning, “sit, stay here and rest a while”) you can enjoy sweeping views north and east across the Atherton Tablelands towards Lake Tinaroo, while behind you rise the rugged ridges of Australia's Great Dividing Range.

It is the ideal romantic getaway, or as a superb base from which to explore all the attractions of the historic Atherton Tablelands, the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef and the vastness of the savannah lands west to the Gulf of Carpentaria. Your Atherton Tablelands accommodation is a short drive to many quality Atherton Tableland restaurants and cafes serving fresh locally grown produce.


Enjoy shopping for antiques, local arts & crafts and jewellery, going for steam train rides, hot air ballooning, wildlife spotting, birdwatching, swimming, horseriding, rain forest walks, sightseeing, caving, exploring local weekend markets and all year round barramundi fishing on Lake Tinaroo. Visit the Mareeba Tropical Wetlands offering a wildlife reserve and a “Twilight Reserve Safari“. Visit historic villages like Yungaburra, old goldmines, crater lakes or the great Aussie Outback. All these attractions located within 1 hour drive of your Atherton tablelands accommodation at Allawah Retreat.
