Further trip information

All activities kick-off in Cairns and are run separately as individual events, so you will be meeting new people at each stage of your adventures rather than sticking with the same group. Because of this the order of activities is subject to change and the itinerary is for guidance only. 

If you book the accommodation option, you'll also get 6 nights in a chilled-out Cairns hostel included - giving you 2 extra days to soak up the fun-filled atmosphere of Cairns!
