Savannah Way 2022: 12-Day Outback Journey from Darwin to Cairns with Great Barrier Reef Cruise & Helicopter Flights

Travel until 30 Jun 2022

Take a thrilling journey from Darwin to Cairns via Australia's iconic Savannah Way on a 12-day small-group tour (max. 16 travellers). Connecting five incredible World Heritage areas, this 3,700km span of tropical savannahs links the treasures of the Northern Territory with Tropical North Queensland.

Discover the Darwin to Cairns stretch in style (with select departure dates operating in reverse), travelling via comfortable air-conditioned coach and stopping off for handpicked stays en route. Watch as arid outback transforms into lush coastal scenery, visiting rushing waterfalls, awe-inspiring gorges and quaint towns along the way. Two incredible helicopter flights guarantee to elevate your experience: first in Limmen National Park, as you soar over the Southern Lost City and Lorella Springs; then in Queensland, where you'll take to the skies over the vast Great Barrier Reef.

Travelling via some of Australia's most astounding scenery, soak in the beauty of the wild with unique outback experiences, Aboriginal cultural tours and unforgettable nature encounters.
