Itinerary

The below itinerary can change due to cultural reasons, seasonal changes, operational logistics and accessibility.

Day 1

Pick Up Sydney Accommodation

Crescent Head

Set the tone for this fair dinkum (i.e. authentic) Aussie adventure by crossing Sydney's iconic Harbour Bridge as we venture toward the surfing haven of Crescent Head. Before testing the waters, dip your toes into an oak barrel (literally) in the Hunter Valley.

Day 2

+

Byron Bay

Try a barrel of a different kind with an early morning private surf lesson on one of the best beaches in the world. Here's your chance to become a bona fide surf master. Our road trip continues with a traditional BBQ lunch and a cruise past the Big Banana icon before pulling into Byron Bay - where you can burn incense, sip chai and become a yoga teacher all in one day.

Day 3

+

Byron Bay

Anti-McDonald's and anti-anything mass produced (but pro juice bars, beer gardens and beards), Byron is glitzy on the outside but small town-hearted underneath. Hit the shops, test out those newly acquired surfing skills, paddle a sea kayak, or watch whales breach from the Lighthouse in winter. This is the town where peace and tranquillity go to relax. You should too. Or jump out of a plane. Byron doesn't care as long as you're happy.

Day 4

+

Gold Coast

Leave the blissful buzz of Byron behind you as we head to Springbrook National Park and its major landmark, Natural Bridge. Next, swap the national park for a theme park as we make our way to party central, aka Surfers Paradise.

Day 5

+

Fraser Island

Next stop: BrisVegas (aka Brisbane). Don't let its namesake fool you - there are no late-night wedding chapels in the sunshine state capital. Get your bearings on a walking tour of the city centre, before burning up the highway to catch a ferry bound for Fraser - the island with the longest beach in Queensland. (75 Miles - 120kms).

Day 6

+

Fraser Island

Fraser is literally one huge pile of sand - as if someone dropped the Sahara Desert into the Pacific Ocean and scattered it with dingoes and rainforests. Four-wheel-drive along the beach highway to mingle with the Pinnacles Coloured Sands (considered a place of good luck for the Indigenous Butchulla women), Eli Creek and the Maheno Shipwreck before testing out your stand up paddling skills on the crystal clear waters of Lake McKenzie.

Day 7

+

Myella Farm

This afternoon enjoy an authentic outback experience at a 2,500-acre cattle station. Embrace your inner cowboy and prepare yourself for an adventure-packed afternoon of horse riding, motor biking and cow milking. Or go walkabout on a real Aussie farm to find that right spot for the perfect outback sunset. Enjoy a hearty home cooked farm style dinner before you take to whip cracking and lassoing.

Day 8

+

Emu Park

Trade the bush for the beach via Rockhampton, the beef capital of Australia. Take a selfie as you pass by the Tropic of Capricorn. Take to the life of a cowboy like a horse to oats with an adventure-packed morning of horse riding and motor biking. Or get your boots dirty, milk your first cow, or go walkabout on a real Aussie farm. Then leave the campfire to follow in the footsteps of Captain Cook as we head back to the coast for Emu Park. Enjoy the Aboriginal experience where you get to learn about totems and artefacts, see some traditional dancing, try your hand at boomerang throwing and make some artwork to take home.

Day 9

+

The Whitsundays

Feeling like you need more air in your hair? Leave the bus and board your own private yacht for our overnight sailing trip in the beautiful Whitsunday Islands. Normally a toy for the rich and famous, today it's all yours to learn the ropes while sailing in paradise. More of a land-lover? Take the diva option and let the crew do the work whilst you feast, swim and snorkel.

Day 10

+

Daydream Island

Keep those sunglasses on as the blinding white sands of Whitehaven stretch before you like a 7km sea of diamonds and swim with the resident Maori Wrasse at Blue Pearl Bay. Back on board, keep adrift of your seafaring skills by helping to set the sails or steer at the helm as we set course for land and two nights at Daydream Island Resort.

Day 11

+

Daydream Island

Did someone say buffet breakfast? (Over) indulge, recharge and relax with water sports, beach volleyball and fish feeding right off the jetty. Appropriately named, Daydream Island has walking tracks, palm trees and secluded beaches. In keeping with tradition, a looong list of activities has been provided ranging from watersports to mini golf and tennis. Grab a cocktail from the swim up pool bar then make a date with a hammock and get in your happy place overlooking the pools.

Day 12

+

Airlie Beach

Our trip has come to an end but feel free to keep the party going when we reunite with the godfather of Aussie backpacker towns: Airlie Beach.
