Day 5, and the 6 Pack riders head out for a day of sightseeing on the 200km or the 100km Tour of the Tablelands.  Visit Tolga, Kairi, Yungaburra, Peeramon and Malanda, with plenty of stops for coffee and photos.  Check in at theNerada Tea Plantation, where you have a great chance of spotting a tree kangaroo.

50/50 riders can break their journey at the tea plantation visitors centre, with plenty of time to visit the factory and sample the local tea and scones before returning to Atherton.

It’s a leg tester for the 200km, with a visit to Watsonville and Herberton, then a stop-over at Nerada Tea Plantation for some quick tree kangaroo sighting.  Enjoy some little side-trips around (or up-and-down) the backroads of Topaz Range for the best views of Mt Bartle Frere and Mt Bellenden Ker – Queensland’s two highest mountains.

It’s the final day of the 6 Pack, and the rides take different routes for the trip back to Cairns.

The 200km riders travel south for a scenic trip via Malanda, Lake Eacham, and the Cathederal Fig tree before heading down the Gillies Range.  Ride up the Goldsborough Valley before heading out onto the coast.  Cruise north through quiet back roads between cane paddocks, hopefully aided by the southeasterly breeze.

The 100km ride heads down the Gillies Highway, and takes the back roads into Cairns.  Both rides finish at the Holiday Inn on the Esplanade.   Enjoy a meal on arrival, then lounge around on the deck and share a drink and stories of your adventure as other 6 Pack riders arrive.
