Itinerary

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 snorkeling, one things for sure - you’ll be blown away with the beauty of the reed. Spot tiny Nemos, giant Maori wrasse, even reef sharks if you’re lucky. Marie biologists may be on board to answer the inevitable ‘what fish is that’ question.

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!

Day 3: Cairns to the Whitsundays

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 launch before kicking on to Airlie. Is there anywhere more beautiful in the world than the Whitsundays? Possibly not. With 74 perfect islands and your fingertips and an open sea calling your name, why not explore one of the world’s most sought after holiday destinations with an optional sailing excursion? If your legs are made for land, spend the day exploring the backpacker’s hub of Airlie. Endless cafes, bars and ocean vistas are there for the taking, so the choices are endless, just like the sunshine.

Day 5: The Whitsundays

You could get up to watch that last Aussie sunrise or stay in bed and contemplate this short and sweet trip to the lush tropics. After our last breakfast together with the squad, the trip has come to an end. Grab a pen and do those essential Facebook adds, if you haven’t already, and say farewell to your new friends, promising to meet up for Contiki round two in another amazing destination.
