Mosey through mangrove forests, soak up sunshine on white sand beaches and spend 2-nights yachting around the  Whitsunday Islands - this is tropic life at its finest. With plenty of options for the adrenalin junkies and equal down time for the laid back cats, this week long holiday leaving from Cairns will leave you speechless.

Good except the sailing!

Guys, this is a great trip but DON'T do it. I would instead do the Island & Rainforest (Start Cairns) trip... It still has everything you want but instead of two nights on a boat you get an optional day-sail, which undoubtedly would be better... The boat (calling it a 'yacht' is technically correct but extremely misleading) is an old racing sailboat and therefore REALLY NOT MEANT to accommodate holiday-makers. The deck has nowhere to comfortably sit and is surfaced with a material similar to sandpaper. And there's very little shelter from the burning hot sun up there. The bunks are, lets say, not great if you have any inkling of claustrophobia, and it is about 45-degrees-Celsius down in the cabin so attempting to sleep was awful. You get a 1 minute shower on each of the nights. The food is good though! And, usually, on Contiki the "party people" and the "not so party people" get along really well - but they're crammed together on this boat, so the people who want to drink and chat into the next morning get annoyed because the people who want to sleep get angry at them... and the people who think midnight is a reasonable bed-time for a 5am start, get extremely peeved at the people who want to drink and make a racket at 2am. Overall, the time on the boat was extremely uncomfortable and soured the trip, so I really wouldn't recommend it. HOWEVER there were some really good things about this trip, which is why I think you should still do it, but do the Island/Rainforest (Start Cairns) instead - - the Daintree is an incredibly old rainforest and you get guided through it by a hilarious, knowledgeable Indigenous guy named Skip. He's great! - If doing the trip at NYE like I did, you get to spend the night at a huge party at the Beach House at Cape Tribulation - NYE on a beach in a rainforest?! How many people have done that?! - White Water Rafting (optional) was the best fun! It's a level 3 rapid, perfect for people who haven't done it before, and it's just the right amount of terrifying. - The Great Barrier Reef is a must-see of course, and it's a great day out on the water. - Whitehaven Beach is such a beautiful, untouched, incredible place. I would go there again in a heartbeat. Word to the wise - Summer is Stinger season in Queensland, so you can't enjoy the water as much as you otherwise would. It's also HOT and HUMID in Summer. I would recommend planning the trip for a time between March-October. SO - Please come and explore Australia!! Contiki are a great company, but just DON'T do this trip - do this one instead: https://www.contiki.com/destinations/australia/tours/466-island-and-rainforest-start-cairns-new I hope this was helpful! - Tash
