Cairns is synonymous with tropical rainforests and the Reef, but did you know a quintessential Australian Outback experience is just as accessible − only a short drive from Cairns city centre! Mareeba is the hub of The Savannah Tablelands and gateway to the Outback. Here is your opportunity to experience a typical Aussie dusty trail and landscape which some might say is the “real Australia”. You can explore towns settled a couple of hundred years ago, and discover what life was really like for Australia’s early pioneers. It’s true Drover land, with opal mines and crystal caves thrown in for good measure. If you want to get a feel of the realities of life in many areas of our vast country, venture away from the coast on a once-in-a-lifetime Outback adventure. Another bonus is that this region (just an hour’s drive from Cairns) promises over 300 days of sun a year!
