This fascinating day trip into the Aussie bush (backcountry) starts with a coach journey to Proserpine -- a small city in the heart of sugarcane country.
Board a sightseeing boat for a cruise through the mangroves. The estuary and wetlands of the Proserpine River are home to many species of bird and mammal. More than 150 estuarine crocodiles -- known as 'salties' -- live here. Your knowledgeable guide explains this special ecosystem.
Back on land, a tractor-pulled wagon ride through the Goorganga wetlands, mangroves and saltpans showcases a land that has changed little since Captain Cook first explored it more than 250 years ago.
Try traditional 'billy tea' and freshly-cooked damper -- Australia's Bush bread. For lunch, savor a barbecue of meats and salads served at a covered campsite.
