Southern Cross has been operating tours to the Rainforest and Hinterland area of South East Queensland since 1994. We are a family run business and over the years evolved from off road 4WD tours to road, water and air based tours involving the market leaders in each of these categories.

Our guides all live and work in the areas we visit and know it backwards. Our tours a designed so you don’t waste time and make the most of your stay in Brisbane.

The Gold Coast is only 45 minutes from Brisbane and being the holiday destination of Australia has everything you can think of. You can jam in as many activities in the free time allocated in Surfers Paradise or relax on the beach and enjoy one of the many Restaurants or cafes for lunch.

Our tours that head to Surfers Paradise are broken up with a walk through a Eucalyptus forest to spot Koalas and Kangaroos in the wild. This is not a zoo but an area known to locals and we know you will love it.

Your guide on route from Brisbane will answer any questions you have and we will supply you with a local map for your arrival.

We have a tour for everyone tastes and you can even split up from your friends and do different activities and come back together at the end of the day. We look forward to showing off all that the Great South East and Australia’s has while in Brisbane.



Our vehicles are all latest model Mercedes with a maximum seating capacity of 16. Our forward facing air-conditioned vehicles are not coaches or large buses with 20 to 40 seats.

Being in a small group ensures you are not lost in the crowd and you can communicate with your guide for maximum enjoyment and information. Some days we maybe busy or quiet and will have to use our Toyota Landcruiser. You can be guaranteed however there will never be more than 16 passengers with a tour and you will be travelling in upmost modern quality vehicles and the best that the Gold Coast offers.
