Hi all, a little bit of advice needed...

I'm flying out to Brisbane on the 17th of August, I want to do some tours and trips ie- outback/ adventure tours.
I have been searching many websites, and noticed that many sites tours depart from places like Cairns and other places other than Brisbane.

Is Brisbane not an ideal departure for these type of tours? I'm thinking of changing my flight now

Advice would be great

Thanks

Nic

You can do trips to fraser island from Brisbane and also stradbrook island

Its just that the a few of the activities are further north then Brisbane you can get a cheap flight or coach ticket up there

If you want to do outback tours then Darwin/Alice Springs is probably a better place to fly in to. From Brisbane it's probably easier organise Island/Reef tours as this is what's close by. As m1ket mentioned, you can always book a domestic flight or get a bus ticket closer to where you want to tour, I know a heap of tours operate out of Airlie Beach/Cairns.

if you are looking at out back tours it is always cheaper in the territory hense travel agents get northern territory rates sometimes you can save $200 on trips.
i know this cause i have a shop there:)
