Tropical Suntanner Trip for 18 to 39 Year Olds

6 Days
Prices From:
US$ 1,307

This trip is all about sun, sea, and gorgeous scenery! Take in all Cairns has to offer, then feel the wind in your hair as you sail the unbelievable Whitsundays. Along the way, there's scuba diving, snorkelling, and simply floating above The Great Barrier Reef on this ultimate Queensland trip, geared to the under 40s.

Chase the sun on this 6-day trips along Queensland’s tropical coast, taken in either direction between Cairns and the Whitsunday Islands.

Cairns is North Queensland’s famed gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and the ancient Daintree rainforest. After getting your bearings on a short tour, choose the activities that most interest you, from adrenaline-pumping bungee jumps, jungle surfing, and skydiving, to winding things back on a day trip on the Tully River. Of course, you can also opt for a Great Barrier Reef day trip.

From Townsville, hop the ferry to Magnetic Island, with its gorgeous tropical beaches and hikes. You can of course snorkel the fringing reef as well, before a visit to the island’s wildlife park, where you’ll meet lizards, native birds, and koalas. Your journey to (or from) the Whitsunday Islands is made that much more special by an overnight stay on your yacht.

The Whitsundays are one of Queensland’s undisputed treasures, with must-see Whitehaven Beach at their centre on uninhabited Whitsunday Island. This is sure to be a highlight of your trip, but be ready for more beach time, watersports, and colourful nightlife in Airlie Beach.
