    Head up into the Tablelands to Mareeba and then north up to the White’s Creek Road turnoff. This 4WD track takes us through some pretty rugged country and helps you appreciate what the early miners went through on their way to the Palmer Goldfields. Eventually we stop on the banks of the Palmer River at Maytown and have a wander over the old township site. Try your hand at some gold panning. After a lunch then travel further west to meet up with the Chillagoe track which will take us onto the township of Laura where we set up camp under the stars, and drop into the local pub to meet the locals and wash away some dust.
    DAY 2

    After a great breakfast, it’s on the road and north to Old Laura. A lot of mining activity was in this region and this now deserted town was a hive of activity.

    Leaving Bathurst Bay the tour heads back down a way to Old Kalpowar. From here there is a choice. Depending on the nature and spirit of those of you in the car, your guide will determine if he takes the Northern route East or the easier route via Battle camp road and Isabella Falls. Either way you will have some great sights and eventually end up at Elim Beach with waterfront camping. If the tides are right here, fresh mud crab may be added to the menu.
    Day 4
    fter a great breakfast we head off over to Cooktown and take a great tour of Cooktown and Grassy Hill. Then off to Archer Point and onwards to Black Mountain with its eerie and mysterious history. Then turning off to the Lions Den we again stop before making our way south and onto the CREB Track where we end up at Yindilli traditional lands for a “Welcome To Country” and great activities and bush lunch with CJ and Helen. Leaving CJ’s we make our way down the Bloomfield Track and into the Cape Tribulation region and to Cape Tribulation Camping for a well earned break and rest for the night. Tonight is wood fired pizzas all round.
    Day 5
    With an early start we take in more of the Cape Tribulation and Daintree region with a stop at Bruce Belcher’s Crocodile tour where you can get up close with the crocs in their habitat… Then into Port Douglas for a town tour and a stop on the waterfront for Champagne, Crackers and cheese before moving on and…finally back to your hotel at 5:30pm

  • CampersOZ - Why tour with us.
    Cairns, the jumping off point for exploring Far North Queensland, is one of the premier tourist destinations in Australia. Just beyond this friendly tropical resort town, travellers get to discover lush rainforests, pristine beaches, endless savannahs and mountain landscapes. Much of the countryside in Tropical North Queensland remains undeveloped and is mostly accessible via dirt road. As such, this is the perfect destination for outdoor lovers to pursue off-road adventures.
    The best way to explore the rugged terrain in Far North Queensland is with a four-wheel drive (4WD) vehicle. By going off-road, you get to discover unspoiled, secluded hideaways, the quiet camping grounds and prime fishing spots.
    CampersOZ can help you plan your next amazing off-road adventure in Tropical North Queensland. Simply choose one of our 4WD Premium guided Cairns 4WD tours. Tours that head up North all the way to Cape York provide over 2000km of rugged track to traverse. Getting there with a CampersOZ eco guide is a 9 Day expedition (One Way with a Fly Back), but you will experience the best 4WD touring Australia can provide. Along the way, we will take pit stops to restock supplies or explore small towns like Port Douglas, Bamaga, Cooktown, Coen, Weipa, among others and relax at sunset on a beach with a glass of wine looking out from Loyalty Beach. In addition, travellers get to see a land rich in history, ancient culture and aboriginal heritage during the trip.
    What to Expect When Travelling with CampersOZ

    Destinations Highlights and Attractions
    Tropical North Queensland is a land of great contrasts. Cairns is the gateway to this region, making it the perfect place to commence 4-wheel drive tours. There are so many destinations to visit while traversing the tropical delights of Queensland.
    Here are some of the destinations and attractions you can expect to visit upon booking
    CampersOZ premium guided 4WD tours.
    #1: Port Douglas
    Port Douglas makes a great stop after embarking on a 4WD tour into Far North Queensland. The town is just a 45-minute drive due north from Cairns via the spectacular Great Barrier Reef Drive, a coastal road sandwiched between coral sea and tropical rainforest. Along the way, it is worth pulling over at Rex Lookout point to relish the stunning panoramic view of the Coral Sea.
    The town of Port Douglas has transformed in great ways since its early days as mining settlement. Tourists from the world over flock here to explore the Great Barrier Reef. Just northeast of Port Douglas, travellers take day trips from the marina to visit Low Island and the outer reef, where opportunities for snorkelling and scuba diving abound.
    History buffs will have a lot of fun learning about Port Douglas. This is the only place on Earth where two World Heritage Listed jewels meet - the Daintree Rainforest and Great Barrier Reef. Other World Heritage listed sites in the town that are worth visiting include the Court House Museum, FDA Carsten’s Memorial, St. Mary by the Sea Church and Port Douglas Wharf.
    A short drive north from Port Douglas lays the lovely town of Mossman. At this point, signboards into the Daintree Rainforest become visible. Before heading into the forest, travellers might want to cool off first in the crystal-clear, emerald-green creeks of Mossman Gorge.
    #2: Cape Tribulation & Daintree
    The Daintree-Cape Tribulation region has a breathtakingly beautiful landscape. Rugged mountain ranges standout in stark contrast to the lush rainforest that tumbles down to the beach. Daintree woodlands have been around for millions of years. In fact, they are believed to be among the few remaining unspoiled ancient rainforests in the world. The forest stretches from Mossman through Cape Tribulation to Cooktown. They are a nature lover’s paradise and home to a wide variety of flora and fauna.
    The Daintree National Park heaves with life. It is worth stopping to explore the rich eco-system before heading out to Cape Tribulation. Countless butterfly species flit through the trees that also serve as an important and significant habitat for rare birdlife. The Daintree is also one of the few tropical rainforests in Australia where birdwatchers can get a glimpse of the elusive Cassowary.
    Crocodile-viewing boat trips can also be taken on the Daintree River. Afterwards, venture into the rainforest on foot and take the hiker's trail to hidden boardwalks or trails leading to untouched beaches at the coast. Visitors looking for a crocodile safe swimming hole can cool off at Emmagen creek.
    After exploring the Daintree rainforest, 4WD travellers can take the Daintree River Ferry. Once safely across Daintree River, a sealed road leads to Cape Tribulation from the south.
    Cape Tribulation 4WD tours can continue from here, which offer plenty of local adventures into the rainforest.
    The period between May and November provides perfect dry conditions to explore the Daintree and Cape Tribulation 4WD trails. A popular 4WD road from Cape Tribulation is the Bloomfield track. This track winds its way through the rainforest before ending at the aboriginal community of Wujal-Wujal. Swimming holes, creeks, beaches and lookout points along the way make for perfect pit stops where visitors can go off the beaten track.
    When conditions are dry, the CREB track is also another off-road trail worth exploring. This track is more challenging than the Bloomfield trail and is only suitable for well equipped and experienced 4WD drivers. It starts from the Daintree Village and links to Wujal-Wujal as well.
    Black Mountain National Park offers a good detour from Cape Tribulation. Camping is not permitted in the park, but visitors are drawn by the massive granite boulders at the foot of the mountain. These huge black rocks are an eerie sight and stand in stark contrast to the lush green eucalyptus trees that surround them. Associated with dark folklore and unexplained phenomena, the Black Mountain is a strange place shunned by the indigenous community but an interesting stop before heading to Cooktown.
    #3: Cooktown
    Located at the mouth of the Endeavour River, Cooktown sits strategically between Cairns and the expansive Cape York Peninsula. This picturesque settlement is a small, uncrowded town bursting with history. It is the spot where Captain James Cook careened his ship for repairs in 1770. Over the centuries, Cooktown went through many transitions to become the historically rich port that we know today.
    After the discovery of gold, populations soared as Chinese prospectors and other immigrants came to the town looking to make the most of the Gold Rush era. At the turn of the 20
    th century, the gold reserves had depleted but Cooktown managed to continue serving as an important service centre. The tumultuous period during World War II saw the town become a military outpost. Cooktown suffered major destruction after a devastating cyclone hit in 1949. However, the town recovered and managed to claim its place as a pleasant tourist port.
    Discover more about this colourful past during a stroll around town. There is no better way to hear about the area’s unique history than from a passionate
    CampersOZ 4WD touring Australia host. Some ancient, striking structures and sites remain, giving a poignant insight into Cooktown’s past. You can enjoy the historical tour of the town while visiting sites such as the Chinese Shrine, the Cooktown Cemetery, and the James Cook Museum, just to name a few. If you happen to be in town during the Queen’s birthday weekend in June, it is the perfect time to watch a re-enactment of Captain Cook’s 1770 landing during the Cooktown Discovery Festival.
    #4: Cape York Peninsula
    CampersOZ makes efforts to plan the best 4WD tours Cape York visitors could ask for. Our guides drive all the way to Australia’s final frontier in north, also known as the ‘Tip’. Famed for being the northern most point in mainland Australia, the ‘Tip’ is the ultimate milestone when making the trip to Cape York from Cairns. The entire journey is best travelled over a 10-day period so that travellers can indulge in the many off-road thrills along the way.

    Along the Peninsula Development Road, detours to small towns like Old Laura and Coen offer a chance to learn about the rich pioneering history of the region. Driving along the Old Telegraph Track to Cape York allows for some of the best 4WD tours Australia has to offer in Far North Queensland. This dirt road passes through some picturesque country with several creeks and river crossings. Visitors can take a dip at the Elliot and Twill falls to wash off after spending a day driving through the dusty road.
    The Cape York Peninsula boasts one of Australia’s last remaining wilderness areas. It is home to numerous national parks where outdoor enthusiasts get to enjoy many pastimes.
    Stops at Lakefield National Park are often the highlight for many visitors enjoying our
    Cape York 4WD tours. There are numerous bush camping grounds throughout the park, with showers and toilets available at Kalpowar and Hann's Crossings. Lakefield National Park is also a popular place for those who want to go fishing. Alternatively, drive up to Iron Range National Park, a bird watchers haven located near the aboriginal community of Lockhart River.
