Day 1-2

Fly into Cairns and check into your accommodation. Get settled in and venture out into the city to explore with your fellow travellers. Making friends and seeing the sights - two birds, one stone. On Day 2 be glad of the previous day of bonding as you’ll all be flying down the Tully river rapids for an adrenaline-pumping white water rafting trip!


Day 3

Sea Kayaking / Fitzroy Island
Board a catamaran to Fitzroy Island and take to the waters again with a morning of sea kayaking. Soak up the sun, snorkel and swim in azure waters and enjoy a delicious lunch before it’s back on the catamaran to Cairns.


Day 4

Balloon Flight / Kuranda / Skyrail
If you’d rather fly than swim, this serene hot balloon ride at dawn is just the ticket. Glide high above the Cairns Highlands’ tropical rainforests, sprawling outback, and glistening lakes and waterfalls and breathe in the impossibly fresh air. After, spend some free time exploring bustling shops and markets in Kuranda then board the Skyrail - the famous Rainforest Cableway - for a scenic trip back to Cairns.


Day 5

On Day 5 it’s all aboard the Passions of Paradise, a modern, 25-foot catamaran, to explore the famous outer Barrier Reef. Take note that it has a licensed bar! snorkel amongst the vibrant reefs and Michaelmas Cay, teeming with sea life. Take a midday break with a tropical smorgasbord lunch or opt for a glass bottom boat tour. It’s the perfect last day in Cairns as on Day 6, it’s time to check out and head home.
