Living in Mount Garnet

Located 163km south west of cairns by road, the small rural town of Mount Garnet is home to approximately 300 people. Originally a mining town, several minerals including tin, copper, zinc and garnet can still be found in the area. There is plenty to do in the local area if you enjoy the outdoors; go camping, visit Innot Hot Springs or try your hand at fossicking. The Mount Garnet Races & Rodeo on May Day long weekend are a big hit with Far North Queensland locals, for many it is an annual event on their family calendar – well worth a look.

The Tablelands region is incredibly unique with stunning rainforest, volcanic formations, crater lakes and views across rolling pastures to Mt Bartle Frere, the highest mountain in Queensland. It is also home to an amazing array of local produce, with plenty of opportunities to sample everything from chocolates and cheese to wines and the most delicious macadamia nuts you’ll ever taste! You can pop into popular Mungalli Creek Dairy and learn about their biodynamic farming practices, or sit down to a high tea and daydream as you lose yourself in the beauty of the landscape.
