Your east coast adventure kicks off in Queensland's capital of Brisbane at 10 am today. Travel through to sun-kissed Noosa, visiting one of Australia's top surf locations on the way. Go koala-spotting in a national park before enjoying a glorious sunset over the Sunshine Coast's hinterland. In the evening stay on the stunning Fraser Island - the local Butchulla people call it K'gari (paradise), and you'll find out why soon enough. This incredible slice of land is the largest sand island in the world, stretching some 123 kilometres down Queensland's southern coast and tomorrow you'll have the chance to explore it, so get a good night's rest ready for a day of adventure - oh, and look out for dingoes!

Special Information:

It's very important that you attend the welcome meeting at 10 am as we will be collecting insurance details and next of kin information at this time. If you are going to be late please let your travel agent or hotel reception know. Ask reception or look for a note in the lobby for more information on where the meeting will take place.

After a delicious buffet breakfast, set off on a 4WD adventure through the breathtaking landscape of Fraser Island. Visit some of the renowned lookout points - perhaps Indian Head or the Cathedrals - for incredible views of the coast, then take a refreshing dive into the crystal-clear water of Lake McKenzie - an island icon. Visit the Maheno shipwreck and the coloured sands of the pinnacles, Pile Valley's awe-inspiring Satinay and Brush Box forests as well as Central Station and Wanggoolba, before adventuring along 75 Mile Beach Road - one of the best coastal drives in the country - and taking a dip in the fresh waters of Eli Creek. From tropical dense rainforest to wild offshore waters - witness the contrasting fauna and terrain of this truly unique island as you venture across undulating sand dunes and vast golden beach, in search of that iconic outback creature, the dingo. This evening, relax at your accommodation and perhaps join the rest of your group for dinner at one of the resort's restaurants.

Transfer back to Brisbane before boarding a flight to Airlie Beach, the hub town of the magnificent Whitsundays and home to endless beer gardens, trendy cafes and a lawn-fringed swimming lagoon. You'll arrive late in the afternoon, so after settling into your lodgings the evening is yours to spend as you please. Perhaps stroll around and explore, or if the sun is still up why not visit some local swimming spots for a refreshing dip. Alternatively, you might feel more at home finding a seat at one of the many bars, grabbing a cocktail or two, and watching the sun set on the shimmering blue water.

Special Information:

After breakfast, take a leisurely day cruise through the postcard-perfect islands of the Whitsundays, including a stop at the world-renowned Whitehaven Beach. Words can't do justice to the dazzling white sands, azure waters and densely verdant vegetation of this incredible corner of the world - Whitehaven is about as impressive as a beach can get, and at 98% pure silica, it's about as white as a beach can get too. Peel your eyes away from the pristine sands and explore the colourful underwater world surrounding the Whitsundays on a snorkelling adventure. Get up close to a beautiful array of rainbow coral, playful fish and, if you're lucky, maybe even some friendly turtles. Head back to Airlie Beach and enjoy one last drink in this lively town

Admire the change of scenery today as you jump into your private vehicle and head through undulating cane fields to picturesque Mission Beach, where World Heritage rainforest meets the colourful Coral Sea. Be welcomed by crystal-clear waters, stunning views and a large population of cassowaries - a flightless bird that thrives in the tropical forests of north-eastern Australia. This afternoon you can enjoy plenty of free time to soak up paradise and do as you please. You might like to wind down with an optional yoga class or go for a swim in the pool. Alternately, head out in search of the famous cassowary or simply grab a book and find a shady spot to sit and enjoy the tropical bliss.

Next, visit the unusual yet fascinating Curtain Fig Tree, a magnificent tree with extensive aerial roots that drop 15 metres to the forest floor, forming a curtain-like appearance.
