ITINERARY

DAY 1 :: Cairns to Cape Tribulation
Start your East Coast journey today as we travel north over the crocodile infested Johnson River towards the World Heritage Daintree Rainforest area and our hideaway retreat. There are lots of layback options to select from including a rainforest spotlighting walk, a stroll down to the beach or a swim in the pool to cool off.

DAYS 2-3 :: Cape Tribulation to Mission Beach
You may wish to start your day with an optional 3 hour sea kayaking cruise (own expense) before we wind our way back down along the coastline through Cairns to the Boulders, where there’s time for a refreshing swim. Our destination today and for the next two nights is tropical Mission Beach. Known as the adrenaline capital of the north, Mission Beach offers many optional activities. Why not take a full day white-water rafting trip down the mighty Tully River. Those with a strong sense of adventure can try tandem skydiving, landing on the beach or catch the water taxi out to Dunk Island for some stunning rainforest hiking. You could go on a fishing charter, relax on the 14 km of pristine beach or go for a rainforest hike in search of the elusive Cassowary. (Day 2: B, Day 3: BD)

DAY 4 :: Mission Beach to Whitsunday Sailing
It’s an early start as we travel south through Townsville and miles of sugarcane plantations. At Airlie Beach we board our private chartered yacht for two magical days and nights sailing the finest waters in the world – the Whitsunday Islands. Note that you will sleep on the boat, moored in quiet coves. Cabins are multi-share only; no twins or doubles for these two nights. (BD)

DAY 5 :: Whitsunday Sailing
You have the opportunity to sun bathe, snorkel and swim whilst exploring the idyllic Whitsunday Islands on board a million dollar yacht. Visit the many beaches, coves and islands on this two night sailing trip. You can even help hoist the sails and take the wheel. (BLD)

DAY 6 :: Whitsunday Sailing to Kroombit Cattle Station
Back on land at Airlie Beach, we head inland through cattle country to Kroombit Cattle Station. Here we experience genuine outback living with the chance to ride a mechanical bull and take a walk of the property. Tonight you will taste a traditional camp oven dinner, cooked in the open fire and learn the art of cracking a whip! (BD)

DAY 7 :: Kroombit Cattle Station
Today is jam-packed with wonderful activities included in the price of your tour. Learn first-hand about Queensland farming life as you participate in a “goat muster” on horseback, try your skill at trap-shooting and be part of a mini-rodeo as animals are herded into the ring. This evening enjoy another hearty camp-oven dinner and re-live your day’s experiences around the campfire with a beer from the bush bar. (BLD)
DAY 8 :: Kroombit to Rainbow Beach
We start early today with a hearty breakfast before our big drive from Kroombit to Rainbow Beach. This is the first time we’ve hit the coast in a few days and we now follow the coast down to arrive at this vibrant young coastal town with glistening coloured sands and a relaxed atmosphere. This evening relax over a BBQ in our accommodation, located just 100 metres from the beach. (BD)

DAYS 9-10 :: Fraser Island 4WD Tag along Tour
We spend the next two days exploring Fraser Island on a locally guided 4WD tag a long safari, staying overnight at Eurong Resort. During this time you will drive along Seventy-Five Mile Beach, explore Lake Wabby, Lake Mackenzie, Eli Creek and Indian Head and be sure to take a photograph of the Maheno Wreck. We return to Rainbow Beach in the late afternoon (Day 6) where we stay overnight. (Day 9: BLD, Day 10: BL)

DAY 11-12 :: Rainbow Beach to Byron Bay
Start the day with a wild dolphin cruise before heading further down the coast. There is an option to visit Australia Zoo or to take one of the many hikes in the area before continuing on to Brisbane, arriving in the early afternoon. (B)

DAY 13 :: Byron Bay to Surf Camp
Relax in the chilled out atmosphere that is Byron Bay. Your guide can give you some tips on what to do, or simply head to the beach for some sun and surf. In the early afternoon we head to our secluded surf camp where we meet up with the Mojo Surf crew for dinner and stay overnight at the Mojo Beach House. (D)

DAY 14 :: Surf Camp to Sydney
After a delicious breakfast, you’re in the hands of the Mojo team (some of Australia’s best surf instructors) whose mission is to get you standing on a board! You will start with a theory lesson on surfing and then it’s out to the beach to get surfing. If surfing isn’t for you perhaps sunbake on the crystal white sands or take a walk around the beautiful headland. After an exhilarating morning we commence our leisurely drive to the stunning city of Sydney, where you will be able to cherish the many great experiences of Australia’s East Coast. (B)
