Amazing part of Oz. Remote areas with some beautiful scenery. Bumpy corrugations, limited supplies and expensive fuel. But well worth it. Lorella Springs was amazing!

Regular bus 3 days a week from Cairns to Karumba
Jun. 2018 • Couples
Trans North bus leaves Cairns 6.30 am Mon. Wed. Fri. up over Atherton Tablelands 778 kms to Karumba arriving 5.30 pm along the Savannah Way. Most of it is two lane tarmac. Gradually being upgraded. Some sections beyond Georgetown are single lane bitumen with dirt shoulders. Road trains and buses have priority to remain on the tar. The smaller vehicle moves over. Lots of great diversions along the way. Mt Surprise to Undara Lava Tubes, Cobbold Gorge out of Forsayth, Gem, rock, crystal collection in Georgetown, Krys the 8.6 m croc at Nornanton, Burke & Will camp. Keep an eye out for the Savannahlander and Gulflander heritage rail cars. You can get these trains part or all of the way back (bus between Croydon and Forsayth. Must book well ahead to get a seat on the trains.
Full day on bus with stops every 2 hours as well as lunch stop. Quite comfortable and fairly interesting with informative driver.

The perfect drive holiday!
Sep. 2011 • Family
We had a great school holiday with our children. There is so much variety between Cairns and Burketown ... there was something for each of us. We visited the Undara Lava Tubes and Cobbold Gorge. We travelled on the Gulflander train out of Normanton. Croydon and Lake Belmore was great. We did a half day fishing charter out of Karumba. We also did some fantastic bird-watching along the way.
