Savannah Tablelands

With Mareeba as the hub of The Savannah Tablelands Food Trail, it’s a scenic drive from Cairns up the Kuranda range to start your tour. Mareeba is the gateway to the outback and The Savannah Way in the west on the Dimbulah Road where the landscape changes to granite outcrops. The food trail covers the area south of Mareeba on the Kennedy Highway from Walkamin (start of the Mountain Tableland Food Trail), travelling north through Mareeba as far as the Wetlands Centre. You can continue on to Mt Molloy and Julatten to get to Cooktown and Cape York Peninsula in the north or take the mountain pass road to Mossman and Port Douglas to the east.

If you would prefer a guided coach tour of the Tableland, see Food Trail Tours.

Look for the logo to find members of our local food network.
