Itinerary

Day 1 : Sydney to Surf Camp, Crescent Head

Set the tone for this authentic Aussie adventure by crossing Sydney's iconic Harbour Bridge as we venture toward the surfing haven of Crescent Head. After a tasty BBQ lunch, we’ll be hitting the water with a private surf lesson on one of the best beaches in the world. Whether you’re just starting out or have surfed before, here's your chance to become a bona fide surf master. 

Meal(s) included : None

Day 2 : Surf Camp, Crescent Head to Byron Bay

Our road trip continues with a visit to the famous Big Banana before pulling into Byron Bay where you can burn incense, sip chai and practice yoga all in one day.  

Meal(s) included : None

Day 3 : Byron Bay

Anti-McDonald's and anti-anything mass produced (but pro juice bars, beer gardens and beards), Byron is so laid back it’s a wonder it hasn’t fallen over. On your free day here, hit the shops, test out those newly acquired surfing skills, paddle a sea kayak, skydive, or watch whales breach from the Lighthouse in winter. Pretty sweet, huh? 

Meal(s) included : None

Day 4 : Byron Bay to Brisbane via The Gold Coast

Leave Byron Bay behind as we head for Brisbane - but first, we tackle Surfers Paradise. Here, we've got a couple of awesome optionals for you to get involved in. What's it going to be; Theme parks or the Skypoint observation deck?  

Meal(s) included : None

Day 5 : Brisbane To Fraser Island

Today we’ll discover Noosa and the breathtaking Glasshouse Mountains, then board the ferry bound for Fraser Island. UNESCO World Heritage listed and the world’s largest sand island, this place is pretty special. Fraser, we’re ready for ya! We ask that you have packed a small overnight bag to take to Fraser Island with you as luggage space is limited. Pack items like swimmers, beach towel, chargers, hat, sunscreen, camera, jacket, toiletries, sandals/flip flops and casual clothes for 2 days. 

Meal(s) included : None

Day 6 : Fraser Island

Fraser is literally one huge pile of sand – as if someone dropped the Sahara Desert into the Pacific Ocean and scattered it with dingoes and forests. Embark on an included four-wheel drive along the beach highway and explore Lake McKenzie, Eli Creek, the Maheno Shipwreck and so much more.  

Meal(s) included : None

Day 7 : Fraser Island to Myella Farm

Along the way today, we'll stop off at the iconic Bundaberg rum distillery for a tour and tasting sesh in the heart of sugar cane country. This afternoon enjoy an authentic outback experience at a 2,500-acre cattle station. Embrace your inner jackaroo this afternoon with an optional horse riding tour or go walkabout on a real Aussie farm to find that right spot for the perfect outback sunset. Enjoy a hearty home cooked farm style dinner before you take to whip cracking and lassoing.  

Meal(s) included : None

Day 8 : Myella Farm

Take to life on the land like a horse to oats with an adventure-packed morning of horse riding. Dirty your boots, milk your first cow, or go walkabout on a real Aussie farm - it's entirely up to you.  

Meal(s) included : None

Day 9 : Myella Farm to the Whitsundays (sailing)

Please note: We ask that you have packed a small overnight bag to take onboard with you as space on the overnight sailing is limited. Pack items like swimmers, beach towel, chargers, hat, sunscreen, camera, jacket, toiletries, sandals/flip flops and casual clothes for 2 days. Feeling like you need more air in your hair? Leave the bus and board your own private yacht for our overnight (2 day, one night) sailing trip in the beautiful Whitsunday Islands. Normally a toy for the rich and famous, today it's all yours to learn the ropes while sailing in paradise. Cue feasts, swim stops and plenty of snorkelling.  

Meal(s) included : None

Day 10 : Airlie Beach

Today, we’ll set sail for sandy beaches, snorkel over coral reefs and soak up the sun. Keep those sunglasses on as the blinding white sands of Whitehaven stretch before you like a 7km sea of diamonds, and swim with the resident reef fish at a nearby snorkel site. Back on board, practise your seafaring skills by helping to set the sails or steer at the helm. Make the most of this paradise before we head back to shore tonight. 

Meal(s) included : None

Day 11 : Airlie Beach to Magnetic Island

Today we’re off to Magnetic Island, just a short ferry ride over from the mainland. Relax, recharge and take it easy in a hammock of your choice. Or, get involved in walks to secluded beaches and maybe even feed some of the local animals. 

Meal(s) included : None

Day 12 : Magnetic Island to Cairns

Get stuck into a private tour of the local wildlife park, where you can kiss a baby crocodile, smooch a blue tongue lizard and even cuddle a koala. Back on the Bruce Highway and colourful Cairns in the far north tropic region is our next destination. We’ll pass palm tree-lined streets this afternoon as we make our way into Cairns, nestled between the Coral Sea and the Great Dividing Range. After checking into our centrally located hotel, head out to grab some dinner – you’re spoilt for dining choices here. After dinner the revelry is up to you – check out the famous Night Markets or soak up the local nightlife at one of the many bars and clubs. 

Meal(s) included : None

Day 13 : Cairns

You have two days to crack Cairns! Why not start with an optional Great Barrier Reef trip? It's like a kid's gone crazy with their paint set down there. Keep your eyes peeled for some awesome animals; we're talking turtles, reef sharks, rays and more. Please note: Pre-book your Great Barrier Reef day-trip at the time of booking to secure your spot. 

Meal(s) included : None

Day 14 : Cairns

After breakfast, say goodbye to your trip buddies. But with white water rafting, bungy jumping and skydiving amongst many others on offer in Cairns, we won't blame you for sticking around.
