Comfortable accommodation set in the beautiful Atherton Tablelands

The Atherton Tablelands is a vista of rolling green hills and thriving fertile dairy country. A range of activities await the interested traveller - food and wine trails, vigorous activities such as riding, kayaking, or cycling for the more active; fishing, boating and walking trails for those that prefer more relaxed pastimes. There are places of geological interest, bird and animal life to discover, heritage tours and so much more. On the Tablelands, life is measured by the experiences and only limited by imagination.

We're your home away from home


At the Curtain Fig we pride ourselves on being your home away from home and are pleased to provide your choice of breakfast, served to you in your room which can be eaten inside, or on the patio table outside your room. Whether your preference is for a large (or small) cooked breakfast, or your taste is for a more simple fare of cereal or toast, your choices are available for a modest extra charge. Eggs and bacon are sourced from local producers.

Evening meals

Evening meals are available on request at the Curtain Fig on the European basis of 'menu' - i.e. whatever is being cooked in the kitchen that night is available to guests. A covered  outside entertaining area is available at the back of the motel  with a great view of the surrounding hills. Optionally, meals can be eaten in the privacy of your motel room, or on the patio outside your room.

A selection of establishments are situated within easy walking distance of the motel, ranging from fish and chips, to pizza, to gourmet fare at Nick's Restaurant, Obi's and Flynn's.

Lots of hidden treasures and places to find

The area is known for its fascinating little shops; the Red Sheds, The Gem Place to name a few. It's also known for oddities like the 'Blokes Bench', and thought stirrers like the Cenotaph and the Avenue of Honour. Antique and art galleries hide amongst more modern curiosity shops. And try not to miss the Yungaburra Markets on the fourth Sunday of the month which attracts people from far and wide!

Plenty to see and do

The region has a wealth of heritage listed attractions and is renowned for its monthly markets, the annual Folk Festival, Lake Tinaroo, and more recently the opening of the Avenue of Honour, a moving tribute to the fallen Australian soldiers of the Afghanistan campaign.

The area hosts the Yungaburra Triathlon in support of 'Soldier On' every November. Not to be missed, the Petersen Creek walk offers great platypus viewing opportunities.
