A deadset, fair dinkum ripper of a holiday! Whitewater rafting, jungle treks, bush biking and diving on the Great Barrier Reef are just a handful of the highlights on this eight-day adventure tour of Queensland!
Home to five UNESCO World Heritage Sites (the Wet Tropics, the Great Barrier Reef, Fraser Island, the Central Eastern Rainforest Reserves and the Australian Fossil Mammal Sites at Riversleigh), as well as cultures spanning several millennia, Queensland is rightly considered one of the world’s premier adventure holiday destinations. Australia’s ‘Sunshine State’ is a land of ancient jungles, pristine beaches and warm turquoise waters resplendent with Technicolor corals! All this makes for some awesome exploration, be it sailing and snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef, rafting down a jungle-draped valley or watching wallabies on a sunrise balloon flight!
This eight-day tour is chock-full of action and adventure in some of the world’s most spectacular surroundings! Your week begins with a rainforest trek led by a local indigenous guide, which gives you the chance to get up close and personal with some of the region’s extraordinary fauna, from pythons to tree frogs, cockatoos to kookaburras! It’s then off to the Great Barrier Reef for some scuba and snorkelling – look out for giant turtles, white-tipped reef sharks and playful clown fish – before heading back inland for a little whitewater rafting on the Class III-IV Tully River rapids! The Waterfalls Circuit hike via Mission Beach is the quintessential rainforest experience, complete with orchids, swimming holes and the scintillating play of butterflies! Finally, there’s just enough time for some superb singletrack mountain biking in the Little Mulgrave Valley before the trip draws to a close. Phew!
Simply awesome! There are few tours that match this Australian odyssey for sheer scope and scale of spectacle. There’s nothing prosaic or pedestrian here; instead, it’s an endless stream of breathtaking experiences! We’d recommend this trip to anyone with insatiable curiosity and an appetite for adventure, to those for whom holidays aren’t just about putting one’s life on pause for a week! There’s plenty of time to relax on this tour, but there’s also an emphasis on exploration and close encounters (with the landscape, fauna and even the locals!). Whilst you don't need to be Rambo to participate on this tour, it is an active trip, so if you prefer not to break out into a sweat, you may prefer to try the Wildlife Tour instead. Rest assured, as long as you’re open-minded and not afraid of a bit of rough and tumble, you’re bound to enjoy this tour – one of the best all-round adventure holidays we’ve come across!
