Family Holiday Ideas

Family Holiday Idea #1 – Explore the Daintree Rainforest


Just north of Cairns is the Daintree Rainforest, one of Australia’s most stunning and diverse forest reserves and a sanctuary for some of our country’s most endangered wildlife. To get the most out of a family trip to the Daintree, book a package that encapsulates everything that is a must see and do in the Daintree, such as the Into the Wilde package. Spend 4 nights accommodation in the depths of the rainforest, floating down the Daintree River on a sunrise or sunset river cruise, exploring the rainforest around the Daintree Ecolodge, sailing and much more.


Take a rainforest walk to one of the more sacred waterfalls, then relax with a wellness spa treatment after a day of hiking. You can even go horseback riding through the Daintree for something a little different.

Family Holiday Idea #2 – See Cairns in a day from a helicopter


The Cairns In a Day package is a full day reef and rainforest experience that gives you the opportunity to see and do everything all in one day.


You start your journey onboard the Kuranda Scenic Rail that snakes through the majestic mountainside from Freshwater Station to Kuranda. Ride the Skyway Rainforest Cableway to Smithfield.  At the Nautilus Aviation Heliport,  board your waiting chopper for an amazing 25 minute scenic helicopter ride from Cairns to the Outer Great Barrier Reef. A sumptuous lunch will be waiting for you at Hastings Reef. After 1.5 hours of snorkelling in crystal clear water, you’ll cruise back to Cairns aboard the luxury catamaran, Evolution.

Family Holiday Idea #3 – Visit the QLD outback


Discover the wonders of Queensland’s outback with an organised tour when you stay at Mt. Mulligan Lodge. There are a number of different adventure experiences to choose from, such as a tour of the old Tyrconnell Gold Mine located in Hodgkinson goldfield or bounding across the rocky landscape in an ATV. You can also venture out on a walk and visit Mulligan’s waterhole, where you can float downstream on a guided tube ride.


Other fantastic activities and experiences include paddling a kayak on the Mt. Mulligan weir, paddle boarding, trying your luck hooking a revered Barramundi or even doing a spot of cattle mustering. There is so much adventure to be had in Queensland’s outback.

Family Holiday Idea #4 – Hire a luxury yacht and sail through tropical reefs


Take the family on a luxury charter and explore the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef aboard the Flying Fish. Private charters are the best way to discover the beauty of this natural wonder and you get to do it in style.


Equipped with its very own helipad, the Flying Fish is a luxury 32m motor yacht with spacious quarters and staterooms spread across 3 decks. There is a fly deck saloon lounge where you are treated to a panoramic views of the ocean whilst sipping a drink, or you can dine alfresco style in the outdoor dining area. Sleep in air conditioned comfort, then spend the day kayaking or snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef.


Onboard, you can travel to all of the region’s famous islands, such as Dunk Island, Hinchinbrook Island and more. Dive on the John Brewer Reef, featuring an amazing underwater museum.
