Rating
TROPICAL ISLAND DISCOVERY Small-group discovery.
Marine Life, Sun, Sea and Sand, this 10-day Queensland tour is the tropical island holiday you were dreaming of throughout lockdown. Starting in Brisbane, you’ll travel north to Airlie beach, with overnights in Fraser Island, Great Keppel Island, Airlie Beach and the Whitsundays at the iconic Reefsleep.

Reefsleep is a two-day/one-night encounter with the Great Barrier Reef – an intimate, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to sleep under the stars. Exclusive Reefworld at Hardy Reef is your destination – a permanently moored pontoon, located 39 nautical miles from shore on the outer Great Barrier Reef. Swim, snorkel, dive and explore this amazing natural ecosystem.


Outdoor-enthusiasts will be in paradise with visits to Fraser Island, where you’ll spend your days in the great outdoors, on whale and dolphin watching cruises, 4WD tours and guided bush tucker demonstrations; Great Keppel Island, where there are 16 snorkelling beaches to choose from amongst other leisurely activities; and, the Whitsunday Islands, where you’ll spend time sailing the Great Barrier Reef.

Of course, all of this time spent outdoors will work up quite an appetite and thirst… which you need not worry about, as there are also plenty of food and drink experiences, including a visit to the iconic Bundaberg Rum Brewery, where you’ll enjoy a tour and tasting; and Sarina Sugar Shed, where you’ll embark on a guided tour of the cane plantation.

This is just some of what you’ll experience on this Tropical Island Escape tour - this Queensland holiday really is a stunning adventure of Australia like no other.
