Gulf Savannah

Journey to where the outback meets the sea in the Gulf Savannah – an epicentre of deep sea and inland fishing holes, surrounded by country towns rich in mining history and indigenous culture. Take a peak at one of Queensland's five World Heritage listed areas - Riversleigh Fossil Sites - where over 20 million years of evolution have been preserved in limestone deposits.

Fisherman’s paradise

  • Buy prawns straight from the trawler in Karumba or cook up a feast on the barbecues at Lake Belmore in Croydon.
  • Charter a plane from Burketown to Sweers Island to hook your own catch or try your luck in the inland lagoons in Normanton.

A visual feast

  • Fossick for gems at Mount Surprise near Einasleigh or view agates with all the hard work done for you in Forsayth
  • Star gaze in Chillagoe and have your binoculars poised after monsoonal summer rains for birds in flight. 
  • Witness the rare meteorological phenomenon of Morning Glory, cruise the mysterious waterways of Cobbold Gorge or view the scenery around Einasleigh from a carriage on the Savannahlander train.
