This magical 4-day tour showcases the region’s beautiful rainforests. Stay 3 nights at Hidden Valley Cabins, an award winning eco resort on the banks of the Running River.

Each day explore a different area with your local guide in a fully airconditioned coach. Take in the Paluma Range National Park, Wallaman Falls the Southern Hemisphere’s highest sheer drop waterfall and the township of Ingham known affectionately as “Little Italy”. There is also time to relax in the beautiful surrounds of hidden valley, take a walk through the grounds and along the river, perhaps even spotting the elusive platypus! Tour begins with guided city sights tour of Townsville. Includes all transfers, all meals each day (except for first and last day) and 3 nights twin-share accommodation.

This tour allows you to see the beauty of Townsville by day and night. Your private tour guide will collect you in the afternoon, and then as the sun starts to set, your evening tour will begin. Admire the work of a local artist at one of Townsville’s boutique art galleries before taking in the spectacular scenery of Townsville by twilight. Dine at a private venue overlooking the water, enjoying a meal prepared by exquisite local chefs, with the chance to bring your own wine. After admiring Castle Hill from the water’s edge the tour concludes with a visit to the very top of the Hill providing spectacular views over the city and across the Coral Sea to Magnetic Island. Menu available on request.
