Full description
Head out in a state-of-the-art luxurious high-speed vessel to the Outer Great Barrier Reef. Cruising at up to 30 knots you’ll spend less time traveling and be able to spend more time on the Reef.

On Day 1 of the 2-day program you’ll have 5 hours to explore 2 spectacular Outer Great Barrier Reef destinations. Snorkel equipment and lessons are provided for you so you can discover this amazing natural wonder from up close.

Later you’ll enjoy a delicious hot BBQ lunch before taking off on the second part of the day’s tour. Experience the excitement of a semi-submersible tour (additional fee) for a whole new perspective on underwater life.

Day 2 begins with a complimentary hotel transfer, before you travel by historic scenic train up to Kuranda Village in the rainforest. You’ll have free time to browse the popular markets and speak with the friendly locals.

The Skyrail will then take you on an amazing ride above Australia's World Heritage-listed tropical rainforest canopy, and then descend into the forest at Red Peak and Barron Falls stations.

Enjoy spectacular views from 3 lookouts at Barron Falls station and learn more about the environment from ranger-guided tours at Red Peak station.
