Australia Cairns Liveaboard Cruise Tour 2

Day 1: Cairns to Cape Tribulation

Start your East Coast journey today as we travel north over the crocodile infested Johnson River towards the World Heritage Daintree Rainforest area and our hideaway retreat. There are lots of layback options to select from including a rainforest spotlighting walk, a stroll down to the beach or a swim in the pool to cool off.

Day 2-3: Cape Tribulation to Mission Beach

You may wish to start your day with an optional 3 hour sea kayaking cruise (own expense) before we wind our way back down along the coastline through Cairns to the Boulders, where there's time for a refreshing swim. Our destination today and for the next two nights is tropical Mission Beach. Known as the adrenaline capital of the north, Mission Beach offers many optional activities. Why not take a full day white-water rafting trip down the mighty Tully River. Those with a strong sense of adventure can try tandem skydiving, landing on the beach or catch the water taxi out to Dunk Island for some stunning rainforest hiking. You could go on a fishing charter, relax on the 14 km of pristine beach or go for a rainforest hike in search of the elusive Cassowary.

Day 2 Meals: B

Day 3 Meals: B, D

Day 4: Mission Beach to Whitsunday Sailing

It's an early start as we travel south through Townsville and miles of sugarcane plantations. At Airlie Beach we board our private chartered yacht for two magical days and nights sailing the finest waters in the world – the Whitsunday Islands. Note that you will sleep on the boat, moored in quiet coves. Cabins are multi-share only; no twins or doubles for these two nights.

Back on land at Airlie Beach, we head inland through cattle country to Kroombit Cattle Station.

Tonight you will taste a traditional camp oven dinner, cooked in the open fire and learn the art of cracking a whip!

Day 7: Kroombit Cattle Station

Today is jam-packed with wonderful activities included in the price of your tour. Learn first-hand about Queensland farming life as you participate in a "goat muster" on horseback, try your skill at trap-shooting and be part of a mini-rodeo as animals are herded into the ring. This evening enjoy another hearty camp-oven dinner and re-live your day's experiences around the campfire with a beer from the bush bar.

Day 8: Kroombit to Rainbow Beach

We start early today with a hearty breakfast before our big drive from Kroombit to Rainbow Beach. This is the first time we've hit the coast in a few days and we now follow the coast down to arrive at this vibrant young coastal town with glistening coloured sands and a relaxed atmosphere. This evening relax over a BBQ in our accommodation, located just 100 metres from the beach.
