Whitsundays + Fraser Island

Christmas & New Year Package

*Please note: This package is UNGUIDED*


2020 has been generally somewhat disruptive (this is putting it nicely). But no matter which state you may be in, Australia is now definitely one of the better places to be located right now (and let’s face it most of the time). 
So let’s end the year with a bang and see some of Australia’s Bucket List Destinations alongside the way!

Why not make Christmas and New Year insanely special this year by spending them in these idyllic locations. 
Think sipping an ice cold drink and looking out over tropical islands, then bam it’s New Year and you are dancing your way into 2021 under the stars on the biggest sand island in the World.
