Tolga is a small country town that acts as an intersection between Lake Tinaroo, Mareeba
. It is an extremely fertile farming area that produces a range of crops such as fruit, potatoes, maize, sugar cane and peanuts. It is also a prime location for cattle grazing, dairy and deer farming.
Currently, Tolga is not a tourist town. It is a small town utilised largely by farmers and retirees, but it retains a distinct charm that makes it a lovely place to stop for a bite to eat. Tolga has a large horse racetrack, woodworks, post office
, pub and primary school. It’s a great spot
for travellers to stretch their legs and take in some crisp, fresh mountain air.
