Brisbane – Gladstone
Today we travel north towards the beautiful Capricorn Coast. After a morning cuppa and a chance to meet your fellow travellers, continue on to Maryborough for lunch. Later there will
be opportunity to walk through the Gallipoli to Armistice Memorial in Queens Park. This afternoon travel to Gladstone for our overnight stay.
Gladstone - Rockhampton
After breakfast we travel to Rockhampton for a visit to the Botanical Gardens. Wander through this tropical paradise and marvel at the tranquil Japanese Gardens, Murray Lagoon Fauna Sanctuary and the Hugo Lassen Fernery. Continue on to the spectacular Capricorn Caves, where during your guided tour of Cathedral Cave, you will discover ancient stalactites, rare ferns and the natural acoustics which have made these caves a popular venue for weddings and underground opera. After a light lunch, take a step back in time during a guided tour of the Rockhampton Heritage Village before settling into our accommodation for the next four nights.
Great Keppel Island
This morning we travel by ferry to Great Keppel Island. Enjoy morning tea before heading out in the glass bottom boat for a coral viewing tour with expert commentary. For those keen to explore the underwater world up close, there will be opportunity to go snorkelling. Return back to the island for lunch and take time to browse the Rainbow Hut souvenir shop, enjoy a swim in the crystal clear waters at Fisherman’s Beach or simply relax and soak up the sun on Keppel’s pristine white sands. Late afternoon we will return back to the mainland.
Koorana Crocodile Farm – Emu Park
Today you will be visiting a very different ‘farm’. The Koorana Crocodile Farm was the first commercial crocodile farm in Queensland, opened in 1981 with crocodiles captured from the wild that were proving to be a danger to people. After lunch, travel back via Emu Park to see the famous Singing Ship memorial to Captain James Cook. The "singing" occurs when the wind vibrates a series of cables with attached pipes of varying diameter – a sound that will be long remembered.
Merry Christmas! For those who wish to attend a Christmas church service this morning, your Coach Captain and Hostess will assist with transfers. Alternatively, your morning is at leisure. Later, join together for a Christmas lunch with a difference - one that will leave you in fits of laughter! Enjoy a traditional Christmas lunch with all the trimmings followed by a Comedy show at the Footlights Theatre Restaurant. This afternoon we will take a scenic drive back to our accommodation, before a lighter style dinner.
Rockhampton – Bundaberg
It’s time to farewell our hosts and make our way to Bundaberg. Enjoy lunch before visiting The Hinkler Hall of Aviation, built as a tribute to Bundaberg’s pioneering aviation hero Bert Hinkler. Later stroll the Alexandra Park Zoo, home to numerous animals including the zoo’s most famous resident – Torty, a Madagascan land tortoise.
Bundaberg – Brisbane
