Is this your Australian holiday of a lifetime? Do you want the ‘true blue, fair dinkum, dinki di’ experience? If so, then this accommodation package is for you!
STAY in three SPECTACULAR locations!
Enjoy three diverse Australian environments, all within just a short drive from each other in Tropical North Queensland.
Experience the GREAT BARRIER REEF, the WORLD HERITAGE DAINTREE RAINFOREST and the AUSTRALIAN OUTBACK!
Stretching for over 500 kilometres along Tropical North Queensland’s coastline, the Daintree Rainforest is the oldest continually surviving rainforest on earth and once covered the entire Australian continent.
The Daintree Rainforest is home to one of the world’s largest flightless birds, the Southern Cassowary and to Australia’s most primitive kangaroo, the Lumholtz Tree Kangaroo.
Approximately 3000 different plant species from 210 families are found in the rainforest. Some of the trees found here are more than 3000 years old. The tallest trees in the forest reach up to 60 meters.
The Daintree Rainforest provides one of the best examples of a tropical environment in the world. It receives vast amounts of rain; however, this usually occurs in torrential downpours that last only a few hours at a time. When it’s not raining, usually the sun is out in full force highlighting the vibrant colours of the rainforest and the sea.
The rainforest has about 120 days of rain per year, with an average of 2013 mm falling per year.
You can explore the magnificence of the world heritage listed area by joining a day tour with interpretive guide or a self-driving excursion.
The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park at a length of over 2,300km long and covering an area of 345,400 square kilometres is the largest marine park in the world. It is one of the most diverse eco systems in the world and home to thousands of plants and animals. The Great Barrier Reef is made up of a combination of 600 islands, 300 coral/sand cays and 2,900 reefs.
The reef we see today is about 10,000 years old, and continues to grow very slowly. It is also on the World Heritage list since 1981 which recognizes its significance to the world community, and is one of the 7 natural Wonders of the World.
A day trip or even an overnight charter to the Great Barrier Reef is a ‘Must Do’ when visiting the area for the first time. There is a broad selection of day boats and charter boats that will ensure that you experience the very best of the Great Barrier Reef.
A day trip will offer fantastic snorkelling and diving opportunities and a private overnight charter will take you to less explored and beautiful destinations within the reef ecosystem.
