There’s more to Queensland than paradisiacal surf beaches, tropical islands and pineapples (especially that big one in Nambour). Scratch the surface and the sunshine state reveals First Nations culture and a rainforest millions of years in the making.

Hear the story of how the Olkola people, traditional owners of more than one million hectares in Northern Queensland’s Cape York Peninsula, had their land returned to them after years of negotiation or get your hands dirty helping out local wildlife on a conservation mission in the Daintree Rainforest.

Travelling to the Olkola region and conducting conservation trials in the Daintree are pretty special experiences – so special that they only operate on a handful of departures each year. Unlike our other trips, minimum numbers are required.

These special interest trips involve quite a bit of ‘hard yakka’ (that’s Australian for ‘work’) and are for travellers who like their learning interactive.
