Tully is a small town located between Townsville and Cairns, in the Cassowary Coast region of Queensland.  It’s known for its sugarcane and banana crops as well as being one of the wettest towns in Australia.

We arrive into Tully around lunchtime, grab our bags off the train and head to the picturesque spot ‘Alligator’s Nest’ (no alligators thankfully). Enjoy a dip in this amazing swimming hole surrounded by tropical rainforest. Later that day we head to our accommodation for the evening, a historic pub, where we can refuel and have a drink or two…

For the early risers out there, the following morning we climb Mt Tyson, a mountain covered in lush rainforest, within the Tully Gorge National Park.  It’s a four-hour round-trip but worth it for the views from the summit.  We then head back down to enjoy a well-earned champagne breakfast back at the pub.  The perfect way to finish off our last day on the Loka journey.

This special Rainforest Experience is only $57 (1 night shared accom, Alligator’s Nest transfers, Mt Tyson hike, cooked breakfast). There is also an accommodation only option at Mt Tyson hotel for $35 per person.
