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.”

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. Guests can make informed decisions regarding what they would like to see with a final quote 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.

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. Many don’t realise that Tour Desks aren’t government sponsored but receive substantial commissions from the tour operators they represent which directly influence their recommendations. Some crafty visitors seek direct communication with the tour operators knowing they will probably get a better deal. You may ask: “What is the best way to do this and 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. Trip Advisor is so easy to use with enough subcategories to allow for an informed choice as well as offering advice that could further assist your search.
Far North Queensland is one of the most beautiful places in Australia with more diversity than many realise 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 see the maximum on offer during their stay. If the rainforest is still a priority, check this out.
