Overview

Our 10-Day Tropical North Queensland Adventure showcases the very best that exotic Queensland has to offer. Starting off in Brisbane – in the south of this sun-soaked state – your coach tour will follow the coastline all the way up to Port Douglas. You’ll enjoy two nights on Fraser Island on the way and, later on, you’ll retreat to the beautiful Hamilton Island in the Whitsundays, where you’ll also stay for two nights.

Whilst this tour has plenty of activities and sights to keep you occupied, you’ll have the option to add on some exciting extras. You can visit the famous Australia Zoo in Brisbane, ride through the rainforest on the Kuranda Skyrail Cableway in Cairns, and take a daytrip to the Great Barrier Reef. And, if 10 days isn’t enough for you, why not speak to our experts? We can help you extend your holiday with some post-tour adventures.  

Day 1

Arrive Brisbane – Sunshine Coast

On arrival in Brisbane, you’ll be met by your tour guide and then your Queensland adventure will begin. You’ll have the option to add an Insider Experience, before travelling up the Sunshine Coast. Or you could enjoy some free time to relax before your evening welcome dinner.

Insider Experience – Pay to visit Australia Zoo. Made famous by the late Steve Irwin, this place has all everything from crocodiles to tigers, as well as lots of Australian wildlife.

Afterwards, back at your resort, you’ll have the afternoon to yourself – so why not make the most of the white-sand beach right outside? Relax in the sunshine, enjoy a refreshing drink in the hotel bar or, if you can’t sit still, visit the historic shipwreck of the Maheno. This Trans-Tasman liner was driven ashore by a cyclone in 1932.
