Cairns to Normanton
The Savannah Way’s eastern point is Cairns, a popular destination surrounded by rainforest and reef. The route westward incorporates the Atherton Tablelands and Gulf Savannah.
Sealed roads and towns in relatively close proximity make this a comfortable route for all vehicles. Of course there are plenty of side routes and loops including unsealed road adventures as well – most of these are well maintained roads with the occasional shallow creek crossing making four wheel drive preferable.
