Cairns Sightseeing Tours
“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.”

Gary is a passionate and proud Far North Queenslander who loves to show off this special part of Australia. His tours often access forgotten towns steeped in early white man’s history, unspoiled rainforest and access sights that are largely unknown or considered inaccessible.
If Guests require something a little different than a structured tour where they would rather make informed decisions regarding what they would like to see, a final quote can be given when an itinerary is decided upon. You will be well looked after while experiencing unique Outback Characters and Breathtaking Views. Perentie Tours are in no way ‘Touristy’ but rather a ‘Genuine look at life in the Outback’.
What to Wear
Tours can range from easy to difficult but closed shoes are always recommended. Usually, light casual clothing and a bottle of water are all that’s required.
When to visit Cairns
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), in stark contrast to the dry season (October/November) that has its own charm with spectacular sunsets. It would be a shame not to experience the many contrasts of both nature and human involvement.
About Perentie Tours
A major drawcard for Cairns is its International Airport giving easy accessibility to the beautiful Great Barrier Reef followed closely by the Ancient Rain Forrest (mostly in the form of a Cairns Day Tour) but there are so many tour options, it must be difficult to decide what to do in Cairns.
Some crafty visitors seek to avoid the Tour Desks, instead choosing to directly communicate with the tour operators, knowing they will probably get a better deal. You may ask: “How can the reputable operators be distinguished?” I wish all questions were so easy to answer – It’s Trip Advisor where individuals comment about their travel experiences.
Far North Queensland is one of the most beautiful and diverse places in Australia with destinations such as Chillagoe and the Atherton Tablelands . Outback tours usually include some rainforest and rich agricultural land which means more content in less time. People in the remote regions west of Cairns are friendly but not so tourist orientated, resulting in a genuine taste of the true Ozzy in places few tourists get to visit. It would be such a shame if visitors didn’t get the maximum on offer during their stay.
