THE OUTBACK

The Outback, with all itís rugged beauty, is within easy reach of the Reef and Rainforest Coast. Only 45 minutes from Port Douglas the visitor can experience a taste of life on a "fair dinkum" outback cattle station.

The Outback is easily accessible either in your own car or on a comfortable and informative tour. Just a few minutes up the Rex Range from Mossman is an all weather road that takes you to historic Cooktown and Laura where Australiaís earliest history is recorded in some of the countryís oldest and most spectacular Aboriginal rock art.

Within a dayís drive from Port Douglas are the Chillagoe Mungana caves - vast underground caverns and tunnels formed from dissolved limestone, and the unique Undara lava tubes - a legacy of the regionís violent volcanic past.
