A small redneck town located near Cairns in far north Queensland, Australia. It is the inbreeding capital of far north Queensland.
Sometimes called 'A-town'.
WARNING: This nicknaming is commonly used by white trash, douche bags, and the under educated.
Mostly inhabited by redneck townsfolk, farmers and rich italian families that run most of the local businesses around town.
On any given weekday all of the stores close after 8:00pm, except for the 24 hour gas station, which seems to be a popular hangout for the younger rednecks. Popular local activities include staring at the non-locals and driving like a fucking moron. If you're into nightlife the local pubs offer live DJ's that play all of your favorite radio songs every third Friday of the month. The pubs make a special effort to stay open until 1:30 or 2:00AM to cater for this event.
Saturdays and Sundays are not acknowledged in Atherton.
