Welcome to Northern Getaway Tours

Allow us to show you hidden treasures of far north Queensland. Our tours  give a relaxed experience with a maximum group of 10 per tour in late model spacious buses. If you like to hang over high places held only by a tea bag string, our tours are not for you. Every driver has a high level of training and has the needs of our travelers as a priority.  Entry fees, light refreshments and lunch are included, so once paid, there is no further need to put your hand in your wallet.

Explore the rainforest along the coastal fringe with an abundance of waterfalls, gorges and rivers. Wildlife can be part of the adventure or seen whilst on the move. Cassowaries, birds , crocodiles and snakes may be seen  as we pass by. Coconut palms dot the coastal roads which lead to out of the way places where we have meals made from local produce. Discover  what lies behind the rainforest. As we move west  over the great dividing range, the damp forest floor starts to thin and becomes dry. The rolling country opens into savannah where ancient reefs have been left high and dry.

We have set tours, or we can cater for individuals or  groups that want to see a particular location or region. We value you and your families safety and insist that all children are in age appropriate child seats , you may bring your own or we can provide them for you.

We operate year round. Cairns has two seasons, Wet and Dry. Come and experience the world heritage wet tropics during the wet season. We supply umbrellas so you can enjoy  the rainforest in all its grandeur. It's a great time of year to visit.

All drivers are trained in first aid and CPR.
