Atherton is a busy little town located on the Atherton Tablelands, north Queensland. We stopped in to look around and do some grocery shopping on our way to the Historic Herberton Village - about 17 kilometres southwest. Many tourists base themselves in Atherton in order to explore the region.

The land around Atherton is a fertile farming area and a variety of crops are grow - sugar cane, peanuts, mangoes, maize, avocados, macadamia nuts etc. We called at a road side stall to buy some bananas and avocados - this appeared to be a popular stall with many people stopping on their way home from work.
