Gulf Savannah

Cairns, Cairns Area
The Gulf Savannah is a vast, rugged land where natural attractions of extraordinary beauty including spectacular gorges and lava tubes are in stark contrast to the wide, open spaces. Friendly characters and historic towns showcase the outback's rich pioneering heritage and offer a true Australian adventure. Whether you want to follow in the footsteps of explorers in a 4WD vehicle, join a luxury coach tour to explore underground marvels, jump aboard a rail adventure through cattle lands and country towns or swoop in from the air to remote eco-resorts, there's an Outback adventure sure to appeal. World Heritage fossil fields, wetlands abounding with wildlife, mining relics, limestone caves and hot springs are all part of the region's enormous diversity. Activities are just as varied. Crack a whip at a working cattle station, fossick for gemstones, canoe beneath rugged sandstone cliffs, boil the billy on a campfire or watch the dance of the jabiru. Relax with a cold drink at an historic hotel, discover a complete rainforest ecosystem hidden in a lava tube, be mesmerised by opera in a spectacular natural setting or hook a giant barramundi in a mighty river. The only thing more colourful than the characters and experiences of the Gulf Savannah is the spectacular red ball of the sun as it dips into the Gulf of Carpentaria each evening.

Cow Bay

Cow Bay, Douglas Area
After crossing the Alexandra Range visitors encounter the first bit of 'civilisation' north of the Daintree River at Cow Bay, located halfway between the Daintree River and Cape Tribulation and offering great beach and rainforest experiences. The turn off to Cow Bay Beach is at Buchanan Creek Road. On the way you can observe the hills of the Alexandra Range (on the right) with its dark rainforest vegetation. Watch for birds, butterflies and cassowaries in this area.  The three secluded bays of Cow Bay Beach are perfect for relaxing, swimming and snorkeling on the inshore reefs and also fishing and beach walking. There are always shady spots on these beaches. Guided sea kayaking can be booked locally at Crocodylus Village. Cow Bay is not a township but a place name derived from the farming of cattle in the area in the early days. The other idea is that Cow Bay is named after the dugongs (sea cows) which come to feed on the seagrass beds in the bay. Cow Bay had a colourful past of farming, logging and grazing. Today tourism is the main industry and sustainability is the main aim of the local community. Local businesses in the Cow Bay and Diwan region offer various types of accommodation - resort style, backpacker, holiday houses, apartments, bed and breakfasts and camping. There is the Daintree Discovery Centre, home-made ice-creams, restaurants, cafés, art and craft, rainforest tours, tea growing, an air strip, horse riding, overnight sea-kayaking to Snapper Island, guided walks and the RACQ depot.
