Drive North Queensland

From reef to outback, through rainforest and grasslands, driving in North Queensland is an unforgettable travel experience.

Wind away at your own pace along palm-fringed beaches, ancient World Heritage-listed rainforests and the golden outback of North Queensland on Australia’s only true tropical motoring route – the Great Tropical Drive.

Take the Overlander’s Way and follow the paths of our droving heroes who brought vast herds of live cattle from the east Kimberley to the North Queensland east coast.

Experience the Savannah Way, Australia’s adventure drive, linking Cairns in Tropical North Queensland with the historic pearling town of Broome in Western Australia’s Kimberley region.

Or tackle Cape York Peninsula, a four wheel drive adventure of waterfalls, wildlife and Indigenous heritage to the continent’s northernmost point.
