Departing from Brisbane, we will travel through fascinating Outback Queensland, via the Gulf of Carpentaria, to the coastal city of Cairns, gateway to Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. During the tour investigate the important role Outback Queensland has played in Australia’s development, including the Great Shearers Strikes of the 1890s, the origins of Waltzing Matilda, and the founding of Qantas." – Craig Giles
