Sleep under the stars at a remote cattle station, zip over dunes in a 4x4 on a remote sand island, sail from island to island through the Whitsundays on a maxi yacht
You can get a sense of just how huge Australia is by looking at a map, but once you’re there, the vastness really hits home. For travellers long on ambition but short on time, this extensive and compact journey up the East Coast of Queensland is nothing short of ideal. Employing a diverse range of transport—yachts, trains, 4x4s and buses—you’ll visit Fraser Island and the Whitsundays, go snorkelling and camp out under the stars in an authentic Australian 'swag.' Your time here may not last long, but your memories will last forever.
