Put four wheels on the iconic Savannah Way, as you make your way west and delve into the underground caverns of an ancient and dormant volcano at Undara Volcanic National Park.

Point your bonnet west, to lay eyes on Queensland’s youngest gorge, Cobbold Gorge, just 1700 million years young. The best way to see the 30-kilometre high sandstone cliffs, is to get below them, taking a cruise along the emerald green water below.
Head back to the coast with a stop at Mount Surprise to try your hand gem fossicking. Arrive an intrepid traveller, return a gem-millionaire. You like the ring to that.
