Holidays of Australia is offering an 8-day north Queensland package that includes accommodation, a 3-night Great Barrier Reef cruise and full-day rainforest tour. This package is available for just $1376 (AUD1319) per person, twin share which will save you $868 (AUD832) off what you would normally pay if you packaged this deal yourself.

You will receive:

  • Four nights’ accommodation at The Hotel Cairns in a Plantation Room
  • Breakfast daily during your hotel stay
  • Full-day Kurunda Rainforest tour with Gray Line
  • 3-night Great Barrier Reef expedition-style cruise with Coral Princess Cruises

The full-day tour begins with a scenic railway ride into the rainforest. Explore the forest bed in a 6WD WWII Army Duck capable of driving across rivers and take in the beauty of Kurunda from above in a Skyrail cable car. A cultural experience also awaits you with an Aboriginal dreamtime walk, which includes spear-throwing demonstrations and traditional dances.

Leave the forest for a Great Barrier Reef cruise on board Coral Princess I or II. Built to navigate island sites inaccessible to regular cruise ships while providing the same luxuries, these ships have a capacity of just 50 passengers for a more intimate experience. You will visit Thetford Reef, Pelorus Island, Fitzroy Island and more, exploring the amazing scenery from a glass-bottomed boat, snorkelling in the shallows or scuba diving in deeper waters. Participate in fish feeds, view giant clam gardens or relax on the white sands of these isolated beaches.

Valid for cruise departures on November 10 or 17. Hotel stays and tour can be structured directly before or after these cruising dates.

Available until sold out.
