No experience of North Queensland is complete without taking in the breathtaking beauty of the Nerada Tea plantation, the largest of its kind in Australia.
With a long history dating back to 1882, the family-owned plantation stretches across 1100 acres (450 hectares) of rich volcanic soil in the stunning Atherton Tablelands, and offers an unforgettable sensory experience. Enjoy a deliciously fresh cup of tea and homemade scones while you feast your eyes on the pristine, lush Cairns Highlands and the beauty it exudes.
Discover the fascinating Nerada history and the tale of the great ‘Aussie battlers’ who pioneered the Australian tea industry. Learn how tea is grown and processed, see the factory in operation and treat yourself to fresh tea and gifts as you enjoy the relaxed pace of the plantation.
The Visitors’ Centre is located 90 kilometres (1.5 hours’ drive) south-west of Cairns.
