DAY 1 - Arrive Cairns
Cairns
Well Good morning Cairns you delightful palm tree paradise. We have two days here to get deep - which may even mean a scuba dive on one of the 7 natural wonders of the world. Whether diving or snorkeling, one things for sure - you’ll be blown away with the beauty of the reed. Spot tiny Nemos, giant Maori wrasse, even reef sharks if you’re lucky. Marie biologists may be on board to answer the inevitable ‘what fish is that’ question.
FREE TIME ADD-ONS
Cairns Outer Barrier Reef Cruise
from A$190
DAY 2 - Cairns
Cairns
Today is all about ticking off those once in a lifetime bucket list experiences. Think you’ve got what it takes to bungy jump or go whitewater rafting? Prove it – we’ve got optionals lined up that will get your head spinning with adrenaline. #NOREGRETS yo!
FREE TIME ADD-ONS
White Water Rafting
A$130
AJ Hackett Minjin Swing or Bungy Jump

DAY 3 - Cairns to the Whitsundays via Townsville
Cairns
Ready for some coach time fun? Damn right you are when your end destination is the Whitsundays. Bring it!
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Townsville city orientation
Townsville
Tropical Townsville never fails to impress with its Colonial buildings and checkered maritime history. We'll get orientated with the city and grab some lunch before kicking on to Airlie.
Whitsundays
Pack your towel and swimmers as we get onboard our private boat and set sail off around the 74 Islands. 
DAY 4 - Whitsundays Sailing
Whitsundays

Arrive Whitsundays and jump on board the yacht. Swim, snorkel, eat & repeat is pretty much today’s vibe as we make our way around the 74 islands that make up the Whitsundays. Do as much or as little as you want – help the crew wince the sails, snorkel some of the best coral reefs in Australia, laze on the fine silica sands of Whitehaven Beach (cue more pinch yourself moments) – today is all about soaking in the moment and relishing the finer things in life.

NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Chill on Whitehaven beach one of the worlds top 10 beaches
DAY 5 - The Whitsundays
Whitsundays
You could get up to watch that last Aussie sunrise, or stay in bed and contemplate this short and sweet trip to the lush tropics. After our last breakfast together with the squad, the trip has come to an end. Grab a pen and do those essential Facebook adds, if you haven't already, and say farewell to your new friends, promising to meet up for Contiki round two in another amazing destination.
