Day 2. Chillagoe Caves Outback Queensland

Up early and off on our custom built four wheel drive vehicle with your personal naturalist guide. We track up the mountains towards the Atherton Tablelands as we head to Dimbulah and the Chillagoe Caves.

Along the way your naturalist guide will point out places of interest and even spot native Australian wildlife that may just miss your not so trained eyes.

Your first stop will be at Dimbulah where you will have some morning tea refreshments and you can take a look around at this historic little Australian town.

As we enter Chillagoe you will see the towering limestone karstes scattered around the township and then we delve into the history of the Chillagoe copper smelters, whose old chimneys dominate the landscapes western horizon. After we spend some time here exploring the remains of the once mighty smelters we head off to a true Australian Outback Pub for some pub grub! (That means lunch).

Once we are all refreshed and have hard a yarn or two with the local yokels it’s time to meet up with the Australian National Parks tour guide who will be taking us thru the amazing labyrinth of the Chillagoe Caves.

These caves date back to some 400-420 million years and were once part of the Great Barrier Reef. This area was once the inland sea and all that remains of the ancient coral reefs is in these hidden limestone caves.

With millions of years in the making these underground caves are nothing short of simply spectacular and well worth seeing!

During the day we will visit the Aboriginal Rock Art and the Balancing Rock and if time permits we can do a bit of souvenir shopping in the gift shop for some Chillagoe marble and local Aboriginal artworks.

On the way back to Cairns we take a rest stop at Dimbulah and try some tropical fruits and then it’s onto Granite Gorge to meet some of the local wildlife who like to nibble on the treats we bring along to tempt them out of hiding.
