The landscape of The Tablelands is unlike the rest of the landscape found in Newfoundland. It is barren, almost desert like.

Situated in Gros Morne National Park on the Great Northern Peninsula of Newfoundland, The Tablelands can be found between Trout River and Woody Point.

The reason behind the dramatic change of landscape at the Tablelands is due to the ultramafic rock, peridotite which was exposed during a tectonic plate collision several hundred million years ago. The collision forced the rock, which originated in the earth's mantle, to the surface.

The peridotite rock lacks the usual nutrients needed to sustain life and therefore the landscape in the Tablelands is void of trees. There is plant life found in the Tablelands however, in the form of tiny, rare plants that can survive an environment which has toxic amounts of heavy metals.

It is possible to hike in the Tablelands, along a 2 km long trail which leads to a waterfall and to the entrance of Winterhouse Brook Canyon.
