Supporting seasonal conservation projects at local nature refuges, you can expect to go beyond the tourist trail to experience the real Far North Queensland.

National Parks and waterfalls will be visited along the way, with an introduction to Aboriginal culture at Tower Hill.
Located on South Island’s rugged and wild west coast, Punakaiki is the gateway to the dramatic limestone country of Paparoa National Park and the famous Pancake Rocks.
