Cape York & Gulf Savannah Tours

We honestly believe our tours are some of the best tours in Australia and our 5-star rating on Google proves it! Our Cape York & Gulf Savannah tours are extensively researched and field tested to bring you the best outback holiday you could imagine! We are adventurers and travellers at heart but also perfectionists. We want you have to have the holiday of a lifetime! They are relaxed tours, not tick-n-flick! We believe our tours are the most comprehensive, best value tours for these regions!

With Cockatours owner & ecologist leading an exceptional team of guides and cooks, these tours are jam-packed with experiences and tasty food! We hate to say, but our job isn’t letting you go home skinny! Being owner-operated we can be very flexible on the road, making for a fun, stress-free tour! Our tours are camping orientated to be more authentic and our camp gear is high quality. Our tour trucks, ‘Zeus’ & ‘Herc’, are equipped with comfy seats, fridges and powerful AC! We are super excited with the tours we’ve produced for 2023 & we can’t wait to share the adventure with you! We aim to make our tours accessible for everyone. We are senior friendly and we craft each tour with different needs in mind!

Tours are held between May – October each year departing from Cairns & Darwin. We also offer full day Cairns photography tours, photography lessons & youth development camps.  We are passionate about culture & nature and love helping others grow and adventure outdoors!  We also offer motivational speaking in Cairns schools, offer custom bookings and private bus hire.

Top Reviews 2021

“We have travelled to many parts of the world and done numerous tours. What Rossy has with Cockatours is something very special that we haven’t experienced anywhere else. Much more than just sightseeing. He is so knowledgeable across the whole spectrum and has such an easy going manner with people. This trip is great value and a unique experience that we would most highly recommend as the best way to see the Cape. There were so many things we saw and places we went due to Rossy’s intimate local knowledge, that other tours would have missed out on. Keep up the great work Rossy and all the best for the future.”
