Airlie Beach, Australia

Airlie Beach, Queensland Mon 11 Dec 2023

Airlie Beach, Australia

Airlie Beach is the Queensland coast's go-to spot for maritime adventure. It's the mainland town that allows the easiest access to the 74 incredible Whitsunday Islands — take the ferry out and spend your day relaxing by clear aqua waters at Whitehaven Beach or snorkeling among the heart-shaped portion of the Great Barrier Reef, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Or stick to the mainland: Walk the Bicentennial Walkway along the Airlie Beach waterfront, popping into a cafe for a late-morning flat white (the Australian signature latte). Take a dip in Airlie Beach Lagoon, or head to Conway National Park, where you can hike your way through rain forest to panoramic views of the city and the harbor.

Cairns, Australia Tue 12 Dec 2023

A friendly city, loved by residents and popular with tourists. More than just a gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, Cairns offers plenty to do.

Port Douglas, Australia

Port Douglas Thu 14 Dec 2023

Port Douglas, Australia

Once a sleepy fishing village, Port Douglas today is a resort town that doubles in population during peak tourist season from May to September. Located an hour's drive north of Cairns, the town's main attraction is its easy access to two World Heritage sites: Daintree Rainforest and the Great Barrier Reef. Head to Mossman Gorge in Daintree for bushwalking among lushly forested groves – the landscape here is up to 180 million years old, and some of its plant species may have coexisted with dinosaurs. Cruise to Port Douglas and take a reef-exploration tour, which allows you to snorkel among the coral, crustaceans and colourful fish. Or take a dip in the crystal-blue waters at Four Mile Beach, surrounded by rainforest views.

Willis Island

Willis Island (Cruising) Fri 15 Dec 2023

Willis Island

Willis Island is the only permanently inhabited island in the Coral Sea Islands Territory. Located beyond the Great Barrier Reef, this island stands 280 miles from Cairns. The only residents on the 7.7-hectare sandy island are a handful of Australian Bureau of Meteorology staff members working at the weather monitoring station.The main attractions are the sights you'll see as you cruise through the Coral Sea. Spot tropical birds like black noodies, sooty terns and wedge-tailed shearwaters. Cruise to Willis Island to see the Great Barrier Reef stretch beneath the turquoise waters and the exotic fish that swim here, including angel fish, clown fish and hammerhead sharks.

Humpback and southern right whales can be spotted in Eden's Twofold Bay from September to November, as they migrate back to those chilly Antarctic waters. Natural attractions are the aim of the game in delightful Eden as well. Cruise to Eden to visit Ben Boyd National Park and walk along its rugged cliffs to Boyd Tower and Red Point Lookout.
