Brisbane to Cairns Northbound

From £1958 for 8 days
Trip Overview
Victoria has the Great Ocean Road, New South Wales has Bronte and Bondi, but head further north up Australia’s east coast and it’s a whole different kettle of fish. Queensland offers one coastal paradise after another: the atmospheric dunes of Fraser Island, the impossibly white beaches and blue waters of the Whitsundays, and the colourful coral tapestry of the Great Barrier Reef. With four-star accommodation throughout, this is one unforgettable east coast adventure.
