Today, leave the bus and board your own private yacht for our overnight sailing trip in the beautiful Whitsunday Islands.

Take the diva option and let the crew do the work whilst you feast, swim and snorkel. Please note: We ask that you pack a small overnight bag to take onboard with you as space on the overnight sailing is limited.

Day 5: Whitsunday Sailing to Airlie Beach

A visit to the famous blinding white sands of Whitehaven Beach and Blue Pearl Bay will also be an option if the weather behaves (fingers crossed!). If you're a budding captain, you can even help set the sails and take the helm whilst further exploring the islands. Later this afternoon, set course for our return to land where we'll spend the night in Airlie Beach. Read: pool, shower, dinner, dancing - all in that order!

Day 6: Airlie Beach to Myella Farm

Day 9: Fraser Island
Fraser is literally one huge pile of sand - as if someone dropped the Sahara Desert into the Pacific Ocean and scattered it with dings and rainforests.

Here we'll wrap up the trip, but with nightlife like this there's always time to have one last hurrah with your trip mates. Included today: -Brisbane city walking tour Meals: - Breakfast
