You don’t need to travel to Africa to experience the untamed, golden savannah. It’s right here in northwestern Queensland! Wild and untouched natural landscapes, exotic animals bathing in cool waterholes, and golden grasslands that rustle in the warm breeze… Queensland’s Gulf Savannah region is one of incredible beauty and diversity, and it’s more accessible than you might think.
This nine day discovery tour ex Cairns will showcase the people, the places and the stories that make Queensland’s Gulf Savannah an essential destination for every intrepid traveller. Along the way, you’ll journey through the scenic Atherton Tablelands, stop in the once-prolific gold mining settlement of Mount Surprise, ride two historic trains - the Savannahlander and the Gulflander RM93 - and also visit Camp 119 from Burke & Wills’ ill-fated expedition. Enjoy a sunset cruise on the Gulf of Carpentaria, explore the remarkable Lawn Hill National Park, snake along the Cobbold Gorge on a boat cruise, go behind the scenery to experience the unique Undara Lava Tubes and more!
This once-in-a-lifetime outback odyssey includes transport aboard a private 4WD bus, eight nights accommodation and 25 meals, and commentary from qualified Savannah Guides at key locations. Sound like an adventure worth embarking on?
