You'll want to pack plenty of sunscreen as you come and get your tan on with us on this great tour of Australia's East Coast. Three days sailing the brilliant Whitsunday Islands, two days in tropical Cairns; and if that's not enough sun, what about the spectacular Great Barrier Reef as well?
|Start||Airlie Beach @ 03.30 pm|
|Finish||Cairns @ 05.00 pm|
***We ask that you have packed a small overnight bag to take onboard with you as space on the overnight sailing is limited. Pack items like swimmers, beach towel, chargers, hat, sunscreen, camera, jacket, toiletries, sandals/flip flops and casual clothes for 3 days.***
Meet your new crew in Airlie Beach and board your own private yacht for our overnight (2 day, one night) sailing trip in the beautiful Whitsunday Islands. Normally a toy for the rich and famous, today it's all yours to learn the ropes while sailing in paradise. More of a land-lover? Take the diva option and let the crew do the work whilst you feast, swim and snorkel.
Please note that the twin / double / or single upgrade is not applicable to the Overnight Sailing in the
Whitsunday Islands. This has not been included in when upgrade rates were calculated.
Keep those sunglasses on as the blinding white sands of Whitehaven stretch before you like a 7km sea of diamonds and swim with the resident Maori Wrasse at Blue Pearl Bay. Back on board, keep adrift of your seafaring skills by helping to set the sails or steer at the helm as we set course for land and two nights at Daydream Island Resort.
Did someone say buffet breakfast? (Over) indulge, recharge and relax with water sports, beach volleyball and fish feeding right off the jetty. Appropriately named, Daydream Island has walking tracks, palm trees and secluded beaches. In keeping with tradition, a looong list of activities has been provided ranging from watersports to mini golf and tennis. Grab a cocktail from the swim up pool bar then make a date with a hammock and get in your happy place overlooking the pools.

Today we pull into Cairns - gateway to the Great Barrier Reef. You'll soon forget you're not on a yacht anymore. We'll show you the sights of the local night markets, and then the night is yours to get out and explore some of Australia's best nightlife.
-Visit the Big Mango
The only place in the world nestled between two World Heritage areas. And you've got two days to take it all in. Why not start with an optional Great Barrier Reef trip? It's like a kid's gone crazy with their paint set down there. Snorkel or scuba to get that elusive selfie with a photobombing fish.
*Pre-book your Great Barrier Reef day-trip at the time of booking to secure your spot

After breakfast, say g'bye to your trip buddies. But with zip lining, rafting, hot air ballooning and bungee jumping on offer in Cairns, why would you leave this sunny corner of Oz?
On your trip you will stay at a variety of multi-share accommodation, which may include hostels, motels, cabins, lodges, and camping out in tents and even a traditional Aussie swag! The number of people in a room varies depending on the type of accommodation. To keep costs down accommodation is based on a multi-share, same sex basis.
If you are travelling with a friend and require twin or double accommodation, this is available at a small extra charge (not available while in the Northern Territory). Should this be required, you can select this at the time of booking.
Breakfasts are included each day (except on the first morning). A typical breakfast consists of cereals with milk or yoghurt, bread, a range of spreads, and fruit juice, tea or coffee. It is rare to get a hot breakfast, though on some occasions it may be available.
Included evening meals will be combination of those prepared by the Our Road Crew, local restaurants and places in which we stay.
If you have any dietary requirements we will make every effort to cater to your specific needs as long as you advise your travel agent or Our Trip Consultant when you book. But please be aware that although we will do everything in our power to arrange it, we cannot guarantee that every restaurant we use will be able to cater to all dietary needs. We also cannot cater for tastes or dislikes, as most of our included evening meals feature a set menu.
