The Tablelands is a raised, barren area in the Gros Morne National Park of Newfoundland. It is located between the Woody Point and Trout River in the park. The Tablelands is made up of peridotite and is believed to have formed several hundred million years ago. The rock peridotite is very high in magnesium and low in calcium. The high iron content accounts for the brownish colour of the Tablelands and underneath is a dark green coloured rock. It is believed that the Tablelands were formed when the geological plates beneath the continents of North America and Africa collided. The collision resulted in the pushing of the rocks to create the Tablelands.
Owing to the geological importance, the place was declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and it is one of the places from where you can see the earth's mantle layer. The Tablelands landscape has vegetation, lakes, waterfalls, deserts, and mountain ranges. The scenic beauty of the place attracts tourists from all over the world and the peak tourist season is from June to October.
Visitors can walk from the parking lot to the Tablelands through the trail. By the side of the trail one can see rare species of flowering and non-flowering plants.
