On the cusp of the beautiful world heritage listed Atherton Tablelands, only about 90 minutes west of Cairns, Queensland, Australia you will find the amazing Chilverton Cottages, Restaurant & Day Spa. It is situated in an area known by many as Chilverton, close to Evelyn and not far from the township of Ravenshoe. This little piece of paradise has everything you need for a great holiday getaway. Accommodation, Restaurant, Massage Treatment Rooms and oh yeah it is Pet-Friendly so do not forget to pack your dog. See our website for our Pet-Friendly Information.
Not just good for a holiday but also good for a day trip. Jump in the car and head up the hill for about 12028 metres from the Smithfield shopping centre, and that will bring you about 1006 metres above sea level. You will relish the naturally air-conditioned climate that we have here. No need for a breeze from the beach it is always at least 5-6 degrees cooler than the coastal regions. You will feel the difference even as you drive up any of the ranges, watch the temperature needle drop as you get closer to us.
There are five main gateways to get to Chilverton Cottages, Restaurant & Day Spa on the Atherton Tablelands and they are:
- The Kuranda Range starting at Smithfield
- The Rex Range Road just north of Port Douglas
- The Western gateway via Mt Garnet & Ravenshoe
- The Gillies Highway beginning at Edmonton
- The Palmerston Highway near Innisfail joining the cassowary coast with the Atherton Tablelands
