From Cairns to Mount Isa, Longreach & beyond, travel comfortably along the fully sealed bitumen roads and enjoy the unique, diverse and beautiful scenery that is the ultimate 'outback' experience.  The Savannah Way provides unimaginable and breath taking sights at all points along its 3700km route. Croydon is one location that can't be missed, a golden jewel amongst Queensland's Outback and a rich embodiment of Australian history and beauty.You too can visit Croydon today and experience its strong gold mining history & heritage precincts, many and varied recreational & sporting facilities and warm & welcoming ‘True Blue' Aussie hospitality.
