Gulf Savannah Tours

Outback travel and outback tours from Gulf Savannah Tours are the ideal way to adventure through some of the 186,000 km2 of Australian Gulf Savannah and experience all the history, wildlife, indigenous culture, and environmental diversity outback Australia has to offer.

Gulf Savannah Tours depart Cairns or Darwin, Australia, and let you explore country Queensland towns on the Atherton Tablelands as well as shires that make up the heart of the Gulf Savannah such as Etheridge Shire, Croydon Shire, Carpentaria Shire, Burke Shire, Mornington Shire, and Doomadgee Shire.

Outback travel with Gulf Savannah Tours can also introduce you to Australia’s red centre; the Northern Territory, visiting Katherine, Broome, Kakadu National Park, and Darwin.

Try your hand at fossicking in an old gold rush town then be touched by the magic of ancient indigenous culture and aboriginal rock art. Stand in Earth’s longest single volcanic lava tube, battle a barramundi, get whip cracking at an outback rodeo, or listen to yarns at a local outback pub.

One of the highlights of Gulf Savannah Tours and outback travel are the tours on offer that include train experiences. Up to 4 different train experiences in one tour can be enjoyed. Everyone can experience the colour and unique character of the Australian outback with Gulf Savannah Tours.
