With a love and appreciation of this vast and beautiful region of Tropical North Queensland, Adventure North Australia was founded in 2004 by Maryanne Jacques, who has worked in the tourism industry for 38 years.
With this experience and understanding each of our tours are personally scheduled and arranged by a small team of staff who ensure your experience with Adventure North Australia will be special.
Adventure North Australia has been part of the Bama Way Aboriginal Journeys for 10 years. An innovative partnership between acclaimed Aboriginal-owned and operated businesses connected by story-lines, where the landscapes are great in contrast and ecologically impressive. But it’s the ability to read this land and learn about its natural and human history that makes a visit here so unforgettable.
Departing from Cairns and Port Douglas, the tours are guided by traditional custodians of the land, who willingly share the stories and wisdom passed down through generations. Our signature tour, The Daintree Dreaming Day Tour has been operating for over 10 years. A spectacular cultural journey from coast to rainforest to experience the natural beauty of the Daintree Rainforest and ancient culture of the Kuku Yalanji people. Here you can walk in the steps of the ancestors….
Our Tour Vehicles
Adventure North Australia operate purpose built 4WD vehicles for off road touring. In May 2013 we took delivery of a new purpose built 16 seat 4WD Isuzu from Perth adding to the fleet of our Mitsubishi 17 seat Canter. The vehicles are air conditioned, have large windows for maximum views and are fitted with seat belts. They are designed for comfort and small personalised tours.
Our Cooktown tours travel on the 4WD Bloomfield Track
The Bloomfield Track in tropical North Queensland became the site of one of Australia’s biggest environmental protests. It began on a small scale with locals, and then organised through state and national conservation organisations, attracting people from all parts of Australia and from all walks of life, people chained themselves to trees and buried themselves up to their necks in the ground in front of bulldozers to stop the road.
While the road did eventually go through, the protesters did get the regions recognised and in 1988 the area was declared World Heritage.
Our Cooktown tours will take you through this remote and beautiful environment in tropical North Queensland.
