STRAP IN FOR THREE DAYS OF DELIGHT, DANCING AND ADRENALIN.
Welcome to Tropical North Queensland!
The adventure begins as your flight descends over the meeting place of two World Heritage Listed icons - the Great Barrier Reef and the Daintree Rainforest.
Fresh tropical juices quench your thirst as you board your luxury coach to journey along the magnificent Great Barrier Reef Drive before arriving for a heart starting crocodile attack show and tropical lunch at Hartley's Crocodile Adventures.
Not for the faint-hearted, take the opportunity to pole feed a colossal saltwater crocodile before jumping on board a private cruise of Hartley's lagoon to watch these incredible dinosaurs in their natural habitat. Come face to face with this apex predator while holding him for a photograph - but don't worry, this one's only a juvenile!
Jump back on board the coach and arrive a short time later in the adventure jewel of the North - Port Douglas and the Daintree.
Get your boardshorts and sarongs on and make your way to the sparkling lagoon pool filled with floating pink flamingos and unicorns for a 'Hot Summer Nights' welcome beach party. Explore vibrant food stalls brimming with fresh seafood, live cooking stations, gin tasting and 'make your own cocktail concoction' under the guidance of a professional flair bartender - think Tom Cruise vibes. Flop into a dazzling neon bean bag to watch the beach games unfold. Get competitive and flex some muscle after dinner with some serious beach volleyball and tug of war, and if you're looking for something a little more relaxed, dare your fellow delegates to get low at limbo.
Recovery is on the cards with a unique river drift experience.
Grab a snorkel and fins and dive into the crystal-clear water to drift with the current, watching fish dart around while keeping your eyes peeled for a freshwater turtle. If it's chill time you're seeking, lie back on an inflatable sled and let the river guide you as you float gently under the canopy of the rainforest.
Indulge in a riverside picnic of homemade pastries, tropical fruit smoothies and fresh-baked damper with local Davidson plum, pineapple, and papaya jams.
Refreshed and rejuvenated, it's adrenalin time. Think hurtling down a mountain on two wheels.
This action-packed ride takes in the famous, historical Bump track. Previously an access track from the gold mines of the Tablelands, the track is now one of Australia's top ten mountain bike trails boasting an uninterrupted, heart-stopping two-kilometre descent to the coast. Don't panic; the last part is a leisurely cruise along Four Mile Beach, where a private beach bar welcomes you with lounges and crushed sugar cane cocktails to fire you up for dinner.
And fire up you will.
Hats in your room will get you in the zone for a lively night of outback fun at a classic Cane Cutters ball!
Turn off the main highway and venture down a dirt track. Disembark and follow a flame-lit path to where your private cane field awaits, complete with fire bins, old kerosene drums and tractor trays filled with ice-cold beer and a band belting out Aussie rock from the back of a rusty ute. Barbecues sizzle with fresh prawns, gourmet sausages and steaks before a raucous round of cane toad racing begins. Be warned - the stakes are high but hysterical. Soon the lights go out, and the sky erupts in pyrotechnic colour before the cane field explodes in flame for a traditional North Queensland burn.
Start your day on the water learning a swag of new tricks to take home. Jump into a kayak, climb onto a stand-up paddleboard, or feel the adrenaline rush of skimming over the ocean on a kiteboard from the golden sands of the famous Four Mile Beach.
Energised, enjoy a sumptuous breakfast of acai bowls, tropical smoothies, omelettes, and crepes cooked to your liking, Daintree tea and Tableland coffee. You're going to need a big breakfast for the big day ahead on the magnificent Great Barrier Reef.
Today is for serious GBR action. Board a sleek, private catamaran and cruise James Bond style to the outer edge of the continental shelf. Your first stop is the outer reef platform for a semi-submersible tour and a thrilling perspective of this 2,700-kilometre wonder - from the birds-eye view of a helicopter.
Farewell the platform and head out further to explore two exclusive reef sites teeming with fish life, colourful hard and soft corals. Strap on a tank and go below the surface on an introductory SCUBA dive hunting for the ever-elusive Nemo!
Cruise back to Port Douglas, bubbles, and beer in hand, listening to funky folk and blues in the comfort of the saloon.
Don your whitest of whites and get ready to dance the night away under the stars.
Step on to the deck of the heritage Port Douglas Sugar Wharf. Illuminated with glowing orbs, sparkling lights and draped in white silk, a white baby grand piano welcomes you with a smokey cocktail.
Roving makeup artists and hairstylists create Instagram worthy, glamour looks for the night for you to capture in the photo booth. Towering white and blue cocktails line the bar as sumptuous fork, and finger foods dare you to taste everything from oyster shooters to kangaroo sliders.
Show off your skill at a game of ping pong or your athleticism on the Twister board. Soon your glamour looks, and bright whites come alive as the wharf becomes flooded in ultraviolet light, and award-winning Sydney DJ Alison in Wonderland takes the party mix to the next level, bringing Coachella style to the tropics.
Breakfast this morning is by the pool with time to relive the exploits of the night before.
Board the coach bound for Cairns Airport with your sense of adventure satiated and a suitcase full of stories.
And if you're still feeling game, there's always the chance to squeeze in a bungee jump before boarding the plane!
