Stay overnight in Hervey Bay. Lunch included.

Day 3: Hervey Bay and the Spirit of Queensland
Hervey Bay is often known as the Whale watching capital of the world thanks to the annual migration of Humpback Whales passing close by between July and October, and even outside of these months the maritime wildlife in this is spectacular so why not speak to our Travel Consultants about adding morning Whale watching cruise? If not, enjoy your day relaxing on the beach perhaps, then ride the bus to Maryborough West and board the Spirit of Queensland train and settle into your RailBed for the night.
Overnight onboard the Spirit of Queensland. Dinner included.

Day 4: Spirit of Queensland and Airlie Beach
Hop off the train at Proserpine then make the quick bus connection to Airlie Beach, your home for the next 2-nights.

Stay overnight in Airlie Beach

Day 5: The Great Barrier Reef and Whitsunday Islands
Enjoy a day you will never forget today, with a full-day cruise.
