Australia has been blessed with many natural wonders. Join Christian Fellowship Tours as we journey from the Red Centre to the Tropical North.
Travel with like-minded people to visit some of Australia’s most iconic landmarks – Uluru (Ayers Rock), Kata Tjuta (The Olgas), the ancient Daintree Rainforest and the incredible Great Barrier Reef, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. All of these amazing places are World Heritage listed – come with us and see why!
Offering so much more than just a sightseeing tour, this will be a memorable holiday filled with fun, faith and fellowship.

Our adventure begins when we fly directly to Australia’s Red Centre. We arrive at Yulara, situated just outside Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park, and have time to explore the resort and purchase lunch at the “Village Square” before check-in.
This afternoon we are in for a treat when we visit “The Rock” for a tour around the base followed by the short Kuniya Walk to see the Mutijulu Waterhole.
Enjoy drinks and canapes as we take in the incredible colours of an Outback sunset followed by a heavenly evening of stargazing and wonderful fellowship as we dine under the stars at the base of Uluru.
Glory in God’s Creation – a day certain to live in your memory as well as your heart!
What an incredible way to start the day as we rise before dawn to view the breathtaking Field of Light. Overwhelming in size, covering more than seven football fields, this exhibition invites immersion in its fantasy garden of 50,000 spindles of light, the stems breathing and swaying through a sympathetic desert spectrum of ochre, deep violet, blue and gentle white.
After the glory of sunrise at Uluru, we’ll return to our hotel for breakfast and some free time in the Yulara village – there are numerous free cultural activities available to learn more about this incredible region and its indigenous people. Take a guided or self-guided garden walk through the native gardens. Join a bush yarn at the Circle of Sand with a local Aboriginal storyteller and learn about weapons or bush tucker. Pay a visit to Wintjiri Arts + Museum showcasing local Anangu products, watch artists at work and learn more about the region’s history, geology, flora and fauna in the museum’s display. Or browse the many art pieces at the Resort’s art galleries and support local Mutitjulu artists.
This afternoon our drive will take us out through the desert to Kata Tjuta (The Olgas) where there is a chance to walk into a part of this amazing geological feature. Whilst Uluru is the largest sandstone monolith in the world, Kata Tjuta (meaning “many heads”) is made up of 36 giant domes spread over more than 20km. The colour of the rocks has to be seen to be believed! We return to the resort for a delicious dinner.
For those early-birds there is the option for a wonderful 30-minute helicopter flight to see the sun rise over Uluru and Kata Tjuta, or just enjoy a sleep-in.
Relax with a morning at leisure – make use of the free shuttle bus which operates throughout the Village and the various activities on offer.
An afternoon departure sees us flying to the vibrant yet wonderfully laid-back tropical city of Cairns where our
4-star hotel overlooks the Cairns Esplanade.
Get a birds-eye view of the world as we board the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway and travel 7.5 kilometres across the rainforest canopy. We stop off to visit a rainforest interpretative centre and take a short walk along a boardwalk through the rainforest before arriving in the pretty village of Kuranda. At the Rainforestation Nature Park we will see kangaroos, wombats, koalas and crocodiles and learn about indigenous culture with the interactive Pamagirri Aboriginal Experience. Watch a traditional dance performance in a rainforest amphitheatre, then join the Dreamtime Walk which includes boomerang throwing, spear-throwing and the didgeridoo.
This afternoon we will enjoy a ride on the historic Kuranda Scenic Railway through the magnificent Barron Falls National Park. Relax and soak up the scenery – picturesque valleys, jungles, railway bridges, tunnels built over a century ago and the Barron Falls themselves. What a great day!
The Daintree is where the rainforest meets the reef and it is no surprise that this area is World Heritage listed; the Daintree is a part of the largest continuous area of tropical rainforest on the Australian continent, ecologically unique it is home to an extensive range of rare plants and animals.
We take a cruise on the Daintree River to gain an understanding of this wildlife environment – keep your eyes open for birds, unique plants, tree snakes and of course the estuarine crocodile. Enjoy a delicious tropical lunch before we wind our way through the rainforest to Alexandra Lookout – here we can see spectacular views over the Daintree River estuary, Snapper Island and beyond.
At the entrance to Mossman Gorge we will hear a presentation by the traditional owners of the gorge, the Kuku Yalanji people, before boarding our eco shuttle for the transfer into the Gorge. Learn about the fascinating secrets of one of the world’s oldest rainforests on a guided walk – a full and interesting day!
Overnight : Cairns
The Great Barrier Reef is the largest living thing on Earth, a 2,300km-long ecosystem that extends from north of Cape York to south of the Tropic of Capricorn and is even visible from outer space!
After breakfast we join Great Adventure Cruises for a full days adventure. We travel via a modern air-conditioned catamaran to Green Island for a leisurely self-guided nature walk. Back on the boat again, we head to the Great Barrier Reef and moor alongside a permanent pontoon and enjoy an “on board” reef presentation and a delicious buffet lunch. Our afternoon will include a fish feeding display through the air-conditioned underwater theatrette windows, a touch tank display, glass bottom boat coral viewing tour and the use of snorkelling equipment to see the underwater display of coral and fish. We return to Cairns late afternoon after a wonderful day filled with the beauty of God’s Creation.
Overnight – Cairns
We come together on our final morning to worship with local Christians before we farewell Cairns and head homeward. What wonders we have seen in one short week!
We return home feeling blessed by the beauty we have witnessed, the experiences we have had, the memories we have made and the fellowship we have shared.
