    I am going to book this trip with the whitsundays sailing leaving on 25 December, just haven’t decided where to start in Darwin or Sydney.

    I’m wanting to book this too. I’m leaning towards the tour starting on Jan 25th leaving Darwin so I can have a little bit of time after in Sydney.

    hiya peeps

    i am also looking to do this tour, does anyone know how much spending money we need to budget for?

    I’ve done 2 tours before and I think pretty much the rule of thumb is about $100/day, but it would depend totally on how much of the optional excursions you would want to do and how much partying and shopping you’d be doing too.
