Buried treasure, ancient bones and breath-taking natural scenery are just some of the gems you’ll discover on a Dig the Tropic Geo-Tour.
It’s a self-driving holiday – stretching from the Capricorn Coast to the Queensland outback – that unearths a swag of geological marvels along the way.
Capricorn Caves, just north of Rockhampton, are 390 million years old but were discovered just a blink ago, geologically speaking. There are several tours on offer, including a visit to the spectacular Cathedral Cave.
The kids will love getting their hands dirty on the “Bats, Bones, Poo & Spew” tour which delivers them to a working paleontology dig site situated in one of the caves.
You can stay in self-contained cabins to extend your time at these timelessly beautiful caves.
