What can I see from my balloon ride on the Atherton Tablelands?
You will mostly be flying over Mareeba, In the local Aboriginal language, Mareeba means meeting of the waters - referring to the point at which the Barron River is joined by Granite Creek. Mareeba is a small country town that has many types of farms such as mangoes, lychees, bananas and sugar. You can see the Great Dividing Range which is flooded in sunlight early in the morning. The Atherton tablelands have a large ecosystem and from the balloon basket you can see kangaroos, cows, horses, cockatoos and small winding rivers.
