Detailed Trip Itinerary for Billy Tea Bush Safaris, Chillagoe Caves and Outback Day Tour

Your naturalist guide will meet you at your accommodation and after introductions all round, you will ascend the McAllister Ranges and head west through Mareeba out into the remote dry country west of Cairns.

Your first stop is Mareeba Wetlands for morning tea and a twenty minute cruise in an environmentally friendly and quiet electric boat

From here you travel through the back blocks of this wetland area viewing wallabies, emus and other wildlife and then along the agricultural paddocks of this fertile area, eventually crossing over the Great Divide and into the Western watershed. © Billy Tea Safaris

Travel through historical towns and rolling hills rich in mineral eventually giving way to towering limestone outcroppings scattered around the historic mining town of Chillagoe. Here the guide will delve into the history of the copper smelters, whose old chimneys dominate the western horizon, and your group will visit the remains of the once mighty smelters to ponder what it was like working there.

Itís then time for lunch before setting off to have a look at this historical town on route to National Parks cave tour. The fossilized remains of the ancient coral reefs with hidden limestone labyrinths give a portal to a lost world just like the Great Barrier Reef. Millions of years in the making, the limestone formations are nothing short of spectacular.

After the cave tour, we head back towards the east coast, stopping at the Mt. Uncle Distillery, where you can sample a range of their exotic products.

The tour then returns back down the range arriving back at your hotel around 6:30pm.
