ABOUT THIS TOUR

On this tour we kick off from the most eastern point of Australia in Byron Bay. We head west into the Outback stopping at iconic Australian towns and places of interest on our way to Birdsville. We head out into the Simpson Desert to climb 'Big Red', the biggest sand dune in the desert. After a country style dinner at the Birdsville Hotel we continue north deep into Queensland's cattle country, until we arrive at the famous Undara Resort for a tour of the Lava Tubes. Our last day takes us through the North Queensland goldfields, over the Kuranda Range and in to Cairns.
