Itinerary

01

Day 1: Arrive the Whitsundays

Welcome to the Whitsundays, aka total, uninterrupted paradise. Why? How about a year round average temp of 27 degrees C, over 8 hours of sunshine a day, and 74 picture perfect sandy rimmed islands at your disposal. Spend your day soaking up the perfect waters and fine sands around your resort, or if the ocean's calling, jump on board our day’s sailing adventure for a closer look at this paradise destination.

02

Day 2: 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.

03

Day 3: The Whitsundays to Cairns via Townsville

What can top the Whitsundays? Not much...except the Great Barrier Reef, the next stop on our road trippin’ adventure.
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 Cairns.
Vibing restaurants, bouncing clubs, & endless tropical feels greet us in the town of Cairns. As the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef this is one of Australia’s most buzzing little towns, and the energy is seriously catchy.
