Enjoy an awesome vacation at this little corner of paradise at an incredible bargain. Far north Queensland is that fabulous part of Australia where the Great Barrier Reef meets an ancient tropical rainforest. On one side there is an amazing underwater world populated by colorful fish and coral reefs of all shapes and sizes - easily accessible whether you are a swimmer or not. On the other side there is the lush green vegetation of a thick tropical rainforest with gushing rivers and natural streams - home to an incredible variety of birds and animals, many of them unique to the Australian continent.
Your vacation package includes:
Roundtrip Air from Los Angeles to Cairns, the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, in Far North Queensland.
7 nights' resort accommodations.
Full Day Cruise on the Great Barrier Reef, with lunch included. You will have plenty of time to swim or snorkel and for non-swimmers you can get a close-up look at the underwater world in a semi-submersible vessel with glass walls.
Trip to the market town of Kuranda on the famous scenic train, winding its way up through the rainforest.
Roundtrip Airport transfers in Cairns.
All applicable hotel taxes.
Ideas for enhancing your trip to Australia
Learn to Dive in 5 Days, from $829
If you have always wanted to learn to dive, this is an ideal opportunity. Mornings are spent in a classroom, learning the theory of scuba diving. After a break for lunch, it is time to get in the pool to put the theory into practice. Experienced instructors will be teaching and assisting you as you learn the fundamentals for the next two days followed by two full days of diving on the Reef. After sailing to some of the outer reefs, complete 9 dives over two days. A highlight is a guided night dive (optional). Visit locations selected for their extravagant and exotic marine life with magnificent hard and soft corals, giant clams, turtles and a huge variety of tropical fish, both large and small. You will be living aboard the boat for two nights before returning to Cairns for the graduation ceremony. [This program operates during your stay in Cairns]
