Airlie Beach to The Whitsundays (Sailing)

Say g’day to your fellow trip mates in Airlie Beach and get excited for the road ahead – trust us, it’s jam-packed with awesomeness! Stayed overnight on a yacht before? There’s a first time for everything! Crack open a cold one, kick back and enjoy the tropical sunset. You could totally get used to this… Please note: As space on the yacht is limited, we ask that you pack a small overnight bag to take with you. Pack items like swimmers, a beach towel, chargers, a hat, sunscreen, a camera, a jacket, toiletries, sandals/flip flops and casual clothes for two days. Twin/double/single upgrades are not available for overnight sailing in the Whitsunday Islands.

Embrace your inner jackaroo (or jillaroo) and prepare to get stuck into farm life! First up: we’ll learn how to crack a whip and milk a cow like a real station hand.

Time to get a wriggle on to our next amazing stop! Fraser Island (and its resident dingoes) await.
