The Outback 

“The Outback doesn’t refer to desert, the Outback isn’t a place on a map; it’s a place in the heart. It’s an attitude, how to treat people, a way of behaving. It’s a belief system where life is simpler, less complicated and more ‘Fair Dinkum’. Far North Queensland was populated only due to the mineralisation discovered in the late 1800’s. With the decline of this resource, these towns have all but disappeared leaving nothing but a graveyard of history and the Outback.”

These well-balanced and proven tours are uniquely created and constantly evolving. Tours are also conducted on public holidays.

Explore Far North Queensland

It would be a shame not to experience the many contrasts from lush the  Rain Forest of Atherton Tablelands and rugged the Outback with dramatic landscapes. These are not seasonal tours. Every time of the year displays the diversity of the Australian Outback. Mid-year (June/July) is our green season after the completion of the wet season (January/February) and in stark contrast to the dryer months (October/November) that has its own charm with spectacular sunsets. Inclement weather is not so much an issue as it is with other Tours.




“If you want to make the most of your stay in the Cairns area, it’s definitely worth it” – Anita, Germany
