Brisbane

You’ll take a gentle cruise along the Brisbane River, past towering skyscrapers to the outskirts of town to the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. Here you’ll have the chance to get up close to these cuddly critters and there are opportunities for hand-feeding them too. If your family are animal mad, then we can also arrange your tickets for the world-famous Australia Zoo, founded by Steve and Terri Irwin. CRIKEY!

Days 5-9
Cairns

Here, you’ll ride one of Australia’s most unique rail journeys through dense vegetation to the remote rainforest village of Kuranda, which is packed with attractions. Then, glide metres above the forest canopy in the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway for a birds-eye-view. Now you’ve found your head for heights, try jungle surfing. This typically Aussie tour has you racing through the rainforest canopy via a series of zip lines accompanied by an expert guide. You’ll want to make sure your camera is charged for this one.

Days 10-14
Hamilton Island

Find a quiet spot on a tropical beach and soak up some sunshine or hire a golf buggy and explore the island. If you like the buggy idea then try the buggy rally – a scavenger hunt-style event that gets you exploring the island by answering trivia questions. Of course, no Whitsunday experience would be complete with a catamaran cruise to Whitehaven Beach. Swirling white sands and jaw dropping turquoise waters will have you pleading with your captain to let you stay just a little while longer.
