Itinerary

01

Day 1: 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. Whether diving or snorkelling, one thing’s for sure – you’ll be blown away with the beauty of the reef. Spot tiny Nemos, giant Maori wrasse, even reef sharks if you’re lucky. Marine biologists will be on board to answer the inevitable ‘what fish is that’ question.

02

Day 2: Cairns

Think you’ve got what it takes to bungy jump or go whitewater rafting? Prove it – we’ve got optionals lined up today that will get your head spinning with adrenaline. #NOREGRETS yo!

03

Day 3: 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.

04

Day 4: 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.

05

Day 5: The Whitsundays to Farmstay

Rollin’ down the Capricorn Coast we’ll drive through the beef farming capital of Rockhampton and pass through the sugar cane plantations of Mackay before reaching The Old Station, a working cattle station that dishes up true Aussie farm life. Tonight may just go down in the history books, with past passengers citing it the best night of their trip...
Honest Australian hospitality knows no bounds at our farmstay, and you’ll be blown away by farm owner Nan and the rest of the family as they welcome you into the fold, country style. Fill up on Nan’s famous home cooked damper cake, an outback speciality, then it’s on to the tractor to meet some of the farm’s larger residents. Tonight is all about partying outback style – tuck in to a huge dinner feast, try whip cracking, then grab the karaoke mic and bust out those dancefloor moves.

06

Day 6: Farmstay to Noosa

Just one night on The Old Station will have you hooked on outback life and wishing you could stay forever. But with Noosa on our horizons, things are only going to get even better from here.
Welcome to the good life, otherwise known as the Sunshine Coast. As we make our way into Noosa, soak in the abounding natural beauty of this picture perfect seaside town. Get in those zzz’s tonight, tomorrow promises to be a big one...

07

Day 7: Noosa

Rise and shine beach babes! We're heading to a UNESCO World Heritage site and the world's largest sand island.
Sitting in the sea with over 800,000 years of natural history in its grains, our included Fraser Island day trip will be filled with sand dunes, pretty lakes & dense rainforests. See those Instagram likes roll in with a snap of Lake Mackenzie, known for its silky silica sand and intense glassy blue water, then appease the hunger growls with a tasty lunch. Keep an eye out for dingoes as we cruise the world’s longest sand highway, then it’s back to Noosa tonight for a legit Aussie dinner at the Surf Club.

08

Day 8: Noosa to Surfers Paradise via Brisbane

Adieu Noosa, we’ve got a party town to hit up, and it goes by the name of Surfers Paradise...
Before we sail our way into Queensland's next much-loved surf and party hub, we’ll stop for a bite in the state's capital, Brisbane. Grab a slice of the city’s well known laid-back urban lifestyle whilst roaming South Bank & Queen Street Mall, then it’s on with our journey to the Gold Coast.
Shake off those mellow beach vibes – Surfer’s Paradise is all about partying in style. Sitting up there with Vegas as one of the top party spots in the world thanks to its insane number of clubs in one area, Surfers is where we get our swank on. Let’s do this!

09

Day 9: Surfers Paradise

How about last night…Today is all about chilling, hitting the beach, and getting a little R’n’R after the night before. We’re nice like that. But remember, you’re not in Surfer’s forever, so do this thing right – don’t stay in bed when there's skydiving on offer.

10

Day 10: Depart Surfers Paradise

OK we get the hype, the love the world has for the Gold Coast is totally justified. Set your alarm early for one last beachside stroll, then it’s time to say goodbye. Swap social deets, squeeze in last minute hugs and start thinking about the destination for the much anticipated reunion trip...
