Let Someone Else Do the Driving
For a totally relaxing no stress visit to the town of Beaudesert and
the beautiful surrounding sites, book a Southern Cross Tour! 4WD Tours
are a unique experience and one that can be shared by the whole family.
In business since 1994, the Southern Cross crew has won several
prestigious awards in tourism and in educating the tourist in the
environment and the country of Australia. Not only do the owners live in
the area, but they both grew up there and know the surrounding country
The vehicles used are manufactured in Australia, known for its unique
countryside. The OKA’s are the strongest off the road vehicles made and
perfect for back roading the outback. During your tour you can choose to
ride coach, where there is plenty of leg room or, if you prefer, ride
inside and enjoy the air conditioned atmosphere. All vehicles have a pa
system installed in order to give out current information as spotted
during the ride. If your party consists of up to 6 people, you may wish
to choose the Nissan patrol and book a luxury tour. Spend the day with
one of the owners, and then have this particular vehicle at your
disposal to travel the countryside as you desire.
There are 2 tours to choose from. The first tour for your
consideration is called Window to the Wilderness and is a full day tour.
You will travel through Natures Paradise, the World Heritage Listed
Rainforest, which is part of the Lamington National Park, and Tamborine
Mountain. The 4 wheel driving is awesome with the views breathtaking.
The waterfalls are a site to behold! The tour holds many breaks and
surprises along the way, such as tea and scones in the morning, and
while visiting the Gallery Walk on the Mountain. You will trek on the
original pioneers track and visit the volcanic plateau of Tamborine
Mountain. This is a walk to remember! As you continue 4 wheeling, you
may spot a koala napping or a wallaby sunning itself as you drive by.
Your guides will escort you on an informative walk through the bush
coming upon the rainforest and the ways that Aboriginal people from long
ago made the forest their home. Lunch time will find you in a secluded
little spot hidden in the Aussie bush that boasts a wonderful crystal
clear cold water creek. The lunch venue is inspired from the “Spring
Gulley” with the delicious barbeque, salad and seasonal fruit to be
enjoyed and will certainly hit the spot! Part of the entertainment you
will enjoy is a demonstration of whip cracking, and everyone can get in
on the fun by trying their hand at it. Enjoy the wonderful tropical
birds before heading back from your day.
The second tour to consider
is a half day extravaganza through the Tambourine Mountains and the
rainforest that it offers. Your guide will point out the wonderful
wildlife and sleepy koalas that call it home. This tour also includes
the delicious break for tea and scones. Stretch your legs and enjoy a
walk through the Gallery where fine art can be purchased. Your journey
back will provide a brilliant scenic trek through the Gold Coast and
surrounding mountains. For more information contact:
