Description

The Gulf Savannah is a vast, rugged land where natural attractions of extraordinary beauty including spectacular gorges and lava tubes are in stark contrast to the wide, open spaces. Friendly characters and historic towns showcase the outback's rich pioneering heritage and offer a true Australian adventure.

Whether you want to follow in the footsteps of explorers in a 4WD vehicle, join a luxury coach tour to explore underground marvels, jump aboard a rail adventure through cattle lands and country towns or swoop in from the air to remote eco-resorts, there's an Outback adventure sure to appeal.

World Heritage fossil fields, wetlands abounding with wildlife, mining relics, limestone caves and hot springs are all part of the region's enormous diversity.

Activities are just as varied. Crack a whip at a working cattle station, fossick for gemstones, canoe beneath rugged sandstone cliffs, boil the billy on a campfire or watch the dance of the jabiru. Relax with a cold drink at an historic hotel, discover a complete rainforest ecosystem hidden in a lava tube, be mesmerised by opera in a spectacular natural setting or hook a giant barramundi in a mighty river.

The only thing more colourful than the characters and experiences of the Gulf Savannah is the spectacular red ball of the sun as it dips into the Gulf of Carpentaria each evening.
