Undara - Best Job In The World – Best Secret in the World

For 2 days Greg Reynen and James Hill thought they had fallen down the rabbit hole. Finalists in Tourism Queenslands award winning marketing campaign “The Best Job in the World”, they had unwittingly put their hand up to be at the mercy of a rigorous whirlwind tour of North Queensland which this weekend included Undara Experience.

Set in the Gulf Savannah region just a short a 45 minute scenic flight from Cairns and Townsville, Undara fulfilled the outback expectations of both Greg, an American based in Singapore, and James an Aussie with strong links in the UK. After visiting nearby Cobbold Gorge they were introduced to the world’s oldest lava tubes before a night around the campfire and the chance to enjoy some of that country hospitality this region is famous for.

Tropical North Queensland’s true diversity was apparent– reinforcing the fact that there is more to this area that just reef and rainforest. With professional tour operators like Sky Safari providing safe and efficient transport, both Greg and James were surprised that a place like Undara hasn’t received more attention within the media spotlight. With tougher economic conditions and the trend for Australians to holiday closer to home, they felt that both Undara and the area were ideal destinations.

Blogging their way around the state and continuing to attract the world’s media attention, Greg and James are showing off the range of tourism options in Tropical North Queensland. During an 8 day tour of the region they will be mountain biking, jungle surfing, whale watching, snorkelling, jetsking, blo-karting and whitewater rafting.
