Day 1: Cairns to Cape Tribulation

Today we hit the open road and pay a visit to the UNESCO World Heritage listed Cape Tribulation and the Daintree Rainforest, meeting up with a local Aboriginal guide to walk through the rainforest and learn about the culture and traditions of the native people. Want a little adventure in the treetops of the Daintree? Why not experience ziplining through the canopy?


Day 2: Cape Tribulation to Cairns

Rise & shine – Cape Tribulation beach is calling, and we’ve got some giant mangroves to explore with our local guide. Nature fix complete, we’ll make our way back to Cairns, passing through the pretty seaside town of Port Douglas on route.Tonight will be the chance to explore Cairns by night. Think cheap massages and souvenir shopping at the night markets or explore the restaurants of the esplanade.


Day 3: Cairns

Well good morning Cairns you delightful palm tree paradise. We have two days here to get deep - which may even mean a scuba dive on one of the 7 natural wonders of the world. You game?


Day 4: Cairns

Today is all about ticking off those once in a lifetime bucket list experiences. Think you’ve got what it takes to bungy jump or go whitewater rafting? Prove it – we’ve got optionals lined up that will get your head spinning with adrenaline. #NOREGRETS yo!


Day 5: Whitsundays Sailing

Arrive Whitsundays and jump on board the yacht.Swim, snorkel, eat & repeat is pretty much today’s vibe as we make our way around the 74 islands that make up the Whitsundays. Do as much or as little as you want – help the crew wince the sails, snorkel some of the best coral reefs in Australia, laze on the fine silica sands of Whitehaven Beach (cue more pinch yourself moments) – today is all about soaking in the moment and relishing the finer things in life.


Day 6: Cairns to the Whitsundays via Townsville

Ready for some coach time fun? Damn right you are when your end destination is the Whitsundays. Bring it!Tropical Townsville never fails to impress with its Colonial buildings and checkered maritime history. We'll get orientated with the city and grab some lunch before kicking on to Airlie.Pack your towel and swimmers as we get onboard our private boat and set sail off around the 74 Islands.


Day 7: Depart Whitsundays

You could stay snuggled up in your cabin with the crew, but really, why not wake up, head to the bow to catch that last Aussie sunrise up on deck. Nothing like breathing in that salty sea air to bring back the memories of an incredible trip. After a final breakfast today we'll sail in and disembark the boat, yes traveller, the trip ends (sob). It’s time for final hugs, last minute social deets swapping, and probably a tear or two, but no doubt planning your reunion trip somewhere exotic. Pura Vida anyone?
