Suggested Itinerary

Day 1

Welcome to Airlie Beach

G’day and welcome to Airlie Beach. Fly into Proserpine and transfer to your luxury apartment (please advise us of your flight arrival times so we can organise your transfer). Your spacious north-facing apartment is flooded with natural light and framed by gorgeous views. With generous living areas leading out to terraces, a modern kitchen fitted with stainless steel Miele appliances, this is indeed refined and luxurious apartment living.

Once you’ve checked in and explored your resort (there is a gin bar onsite!), we recommend going for dinner at the Rocks Restaurant which offers locally sourced, fresh produce and sensational Marina and ocean views.

Inclusions: Airport shuttle

Day 2

Whitehaven day tour

This morning, after you enjoy your buffet breakfast by the pool, you’ll be collected from your accommodation and taken to board a speed boat which will transport you to the absolutely beautiful Whitehaven Beach. This beach has been voted the prettiest beach in the world and it’s easy to see why! You’ll get the chance to explore both the south and north ends of the beach, enjoy a delicious lunch on the beach and a guided bush walk to the spectacular Hill Inlet Lookout. Indulge in a refreshing swim or simply relax and take in the stunning views. After the beach you’ll have plenty of time for a snorkel in the tropical waters before the cruise home. If you fancy a drink on the ride back, you can purchase one from the boat’s bar — the perfect way to complement the views you’ll see on the journey back.

Inclusions: Breakfast, Whitehaven day tour including lunch, snorkel & transfers


Day 3

Scenic reef and islands flight

This morning you’ll be picked up again and taken for a scenic flight. This incredible experience offers once in a lifetime views over the amazing Whitehaven Beach and the outer Great Barrier Reef. You’ll fly over amazingly blue waters, white sand beaches and even a naturally heart-shaped reef — how romantic. This is arguably the best scenic flight in the world, but we’ll let you be the judge of that.

Once you’ve touched back down, you’ll be transferred back to your accommodation where you can freshen up for the evening. For dinner and sunset drinks, we recommend heading out to Northerlies Bar and Restaurant. There is a courtesy shuttle bus available which we recommend booking the day before.

Inclusions: Breakfast, 1 Hour Scenic reef and islands flight with transfers
