Queensland Rail, Reef & Rainforest

Hosted Tour from Whangarei – 15 Days / 14 nights – From $(price to be advised) share twin each

On Day one, we depart our Whangarei homes by minivan to Auckland Airport to catch the 4pm flight to Brisbane. Upon arrival, we shuttle to our central city hotel (2 nights). The next day we explore the Gold Coast by Mini Van, before returning back to Brisbane. Our first Train trip is on the modern Tilt train that departs late morning and arrives into Maryborough mid-afternoon. From Maryborough we shuttle & ferry across to our Fraser Island eco-resort(2 nights).

On Fraser Island we have a full day tour exploring this nature reserve and largest sand island in the world. On departing Fraser Island, we have some time to explore Maryborough, before we catch the evening Spirit of Queensland overnight train (1 night sleeper) via Bundaberg to arrive into Proserpine early morning. Here, we’ll grab some breakfast, then take a morning boat out to Hamilton Island (2 nights) in the Whitsunday Island group.

We spend 2 & ½ days relaxing & enjoying the many activities available on Hamilton Island, then return late afternoon to Proserpine (1 night) before catching the Spirit of Australia early in the morning and spending most the day watching the Queensland scenery pass us by. We arrive late afternoon then shuttle to our central Cairns hotel (2 nights).
During our stay in Cairns we take a day tour on the spectacular Kuranda Scenic Railway with Skyrail Rainforest Cableway

From Cairns, we shuttle 2 & ½ hours north to the Daintree Forest where we spend (2 nights) in a fabulous Wilderness Lodge set deep in the forest. While there we explore the flora & fauna of the area (including a crocodile cruise experience!). Leaving the Daintree, we shuttle back to Cairns (1 night) then fly to Brisbane (1 night), then fly back to Auckland and minivan back to our Whangarei homes.

What a great way to see the best of Queensland’s Rail, Reefs & Rainforests!

Oh my gosh, we all had a fantastic day out. Thank you so much. I really didn’t expect to like all those weird and wonderful snacks during the "Curious Food Train" activity, and didn’t think they would all participate. The staff all keep thanking us for such a great day. Looking forward to next years event!
