Enjoy the pristine surf beaches and thrills of the Gold Coast, with the crystal clear water and laid back lifestyle of tropical Queensland on this 14 day holiday through the Sunshine State.

Suggested itinerary includes:

  • 6 nights in the Gold Coast
  • 7 nights in Cairns 

Day 1 - Gold Coast
On arrival into Brisbane travel to the famous Gold Coast, it's about one hour south of the city. Home to excellent surfing beaches, shops, theme parks and an array of bars, fine restaurants and nightlife, your time in the Gold Coast will be action packed and will offer a true taste of Australian lifestyle. A short distance inland, Lamington National Park offers superb rainforest walks that seem a million miles from the hustle and bustle of the coastal strip.

Day 7 - Cairns
Head back to Brisbane Airport today for your onward flight to Cairns. There's so much to do in the Tropical North. Why not begin your exploration of the region with a scenic ride over the treetops to admire the views across Cairns on the Kuranda Skyrail, immerse yourself in Australian Culture at the Tjapukai Aboriginal Cultural Park, cruise the crystal blue waters to experience the iconic Great Barrier Reef or simply take a scenic drive through the fashionable beachside town of Palm Cove. If you head inland you'll find the picturesque lakes and waterfalls of the Atherton Tablelands.

Day 14 - Farewell
Say a reluctant farewell to North Queensland and the Great Barrier Reef region as you transfer back to Cairns airport today for your overnight flight back to the UK.
