ABOUT THIS TOUR
This tour kicks off at the easternmost point of Australia in Byron Bay. It heads west into the Outback stopping at iconic Australian towns and places of interest along the way. Experience the drive along the breathtakingly beautiful Condamine River with its many river crossings.
The tour then turns north deep into Queensland’s cattle country, until we arrive at the famous Undara Resort for a tour of the Lava Tubes.
On our way to Cairns we travel through the old North Queensland goldfields, with traces of bygone days everywhere. We check out the Kuranda markets before heading down the Kuranda Range and in to Cairns.
