Great Barrier Reeeef day tour

You can’t really visit Australia and not tick the Great Barrier Reef odd your Aussie bucket list – it’s THE dream destination right!?

Passions of Paradise catamaran day trip to the reef is an epic way to experience all of its glory. Snorkel equipment and food is included plus, you have the option to have a go at scuba diving if you’re keen! Expect to see unreal marine life on the reef and you might even get lucky and see turtles and non people eating sharks!

Sky Dive

Calling all adrenaline junkies – did you hear, Mission Beach is the place to be if you’re keen to sky dive as you land on the beach! Think Mission Impossible – Aussie styleee!

If you’re gonna brave it, do it in style at Mission Beach – taking the dive at 15,000 ft, above the Great Barrier Reef, now that’s a sick story to tell for the rest of your life!

Magnetic Island Escape

A less familiar spot, but none the less an absolute MUST to add to your Aussie itinerary.

Staying on Maggie Island – just off the coast of Townsville – is like staying on some tropical island in the middle of the ocean. There’s wild koalas, wallabies come out at sunset, epic walks, 360 views…the place has it all.

Base is a legendary sociable and fun hostel – it hosts boozy bingo bingo nights, bar wars and themed Thursdays and is one of our fave hostels on the east coast for many reasons. If you fancy something a little more chilled, they run free walking tours and free yoga classes.

Whitsundays Sailing trip

The Whitsundays >> what a beaaaaaaaauty! We love abit of Whitehaven Beach & The New Horizon sailing boat visits both Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet and is the perfect balance between chilled and party vibe…

So, if snorkelling and lounging on white sandy beaches during the day and partying hard at night sounds like your kind of thing, this is the option for you.
