Savannah Explorer

This fantastic package is the main tour for the Savannahlander.  A four day, three night tour which also includes side-tours at each of our overnight stops.  This package includes your rail fare, on-tour transfers, accommodation and dinner/breakfast at your overnight accommodation.

Your trip features:

  • Travel on the Savannahlander from Cairns to Forsayth and Einasleigh to Cairns.
  • En-suite accommodation in Chillagoe with one of our accommodation providers, either the Chillagoe Eco Lodge, Chillagoe Motel or Chillagoe Cabins as availability dictates. 
  • A tour in the afternoon of the Chillagoe Caves and Town.
  • En-suited accommodation in Cobbold Gorge or Forsayth at Finnigans Rest.  We will generally book your stay at Cobbold Gorge, however as the season progresses you may stay in Forsayth as required by availability.
  • Regardless of where you stay (Forsayth or Cobbold Gorge),  will be enjoying the Cobbold Gorge Boat Cruise.
  • En-suited accommodation at the Bedrock Village Van Park  or Mt Surprise Motel in Mt Surprise.   You may choose to stay at the Undara Lava Lodge but please check the availabilities first, and note this at the time of booking on your booking form.
  • With both Mt Surprise and Undara stays, you can enjoy a tour of the wonderful Undara Lava Tubes.
  • All in-tour transfers as required.
  • 3 dinners and 3 breakfasts.

Please note : As places fill there may be an additional surcharge of $62 per person for accommodation in Mount Surprise. You will be contacted prior to confirmation of your booking to confirm this surcharge.



  • A fair level of mobility is required for the The Undara Lava Tubes tour as it does include around 300 stairs.  They are properly constructed and maintained with landings and some rest benches.  If you require mobility assistance there is a “Mobility Impaired” tour available by request. This is only available to those staying at the Undara Lava Lodge and must be booked in advance.
  • There is limited accommodation for our tours, in fact our available rail packages are limited only by beds available at our overnight stops.  Please understand that sometimes we may not be able to keep groups together in the one venue, although if you note your travelling partners on your booking form we will do our best.
  • If you have a preference for venues in any of your stays, please note this on your booking form.  We may be unable to change your accommodation after your initial booking as places do fill up fast.  Some venues may incur an additional charge which will be discussed with you prior to confirmation.
