Arrive Cairns

Check into the Rydges Esplanade from 2pm and the rest of the afternoon is free for you to explore.

Cairns

Meet your Contiki crew then we're off to town for a Cairns orientation tour, so you can get a feel of the area you will be spending the next two nights. Tonight we head out to a local restaurant for dinner where you have the opportunity to try kangaroo fillets, amongst other delicious Australian delicacies. In your free time, walk around Cairns' buzzing night markets. It's the perfect place for shopping and with everything from fun, kitsch treasures to local crafts like boomerangs and didgeridoos. There's something for everyone.

Cairns

Wake up to the warm waters of Cairns. For those who are keen for a fun and thrilling ride on the rapids of the Tully River, join our optional white-water rafting adventure activity with our professional Local Guides. There are loads more activities available in Cairns like hot air ballooning, sky diving and bungy jumping - just ask your Tour Manager for some more info. There's a chance to experience the Great Barrier Reef on an optional day trip. Put on your snorkel gear and check out colourful fish, turtles, vivid coral and the incredible clear waters. Later, hit the seaside esplanade back in Cairns, sit down with a coffee and people watch. For your last night with the group in this city, there's a chance to head down to a local hot-spot for dinner if you're up for it.

Cairns to the Whitsundays

Relax on the coach as we cruise past thick, tropical rainforests into Tully, home to some of Australia's best whitewater rafting. Slowly leaving the tropics behind us, we hit Townsville for some free time. Check out the colonial buildings and get a feel for its maritime past as we drive along the esplanade and into town where you can grab some lunch. See vistas over Magnetic Island, a National Park and bird sanctuary, before we continue our travels south. Play some tunes on your ipod, have a chat, catch a DVD or simply enojoy some downtime before you board a ferry out to stunning Daydream Island. The time is then yours to enjoy the picture-perfect Whitsundays! Slow the pace down, kick back and make the most of the fantastic facilities available at the resort. Go for a rainforest walk, swim in the pool, get into some beach or water sports, try your hand at fish-feeding, catch a film at the big outdoor cinema or laze about on the beach. For those that are up for it, you could get away from it all with our optional day sail. Check out some of the Whitsunday's 74 islands from the boat - you'll soon understand why this region is so famous. Experience what is known as one of the top ten beaches in the world, uninhabited Whitehaven Beach. Swim off the boat and play beach volleyball or cricket with the local skipper and crew before enjoying a tasty lunch and a few drinks on the way back to Daydream Island.

The tour ends after breakfast, so it's time to swap email addresses & say farewell to your new friends.
