Day 1 L, D

Today we step back in time as we travel on board the heritage steam journey through the picturesque Mary Valley. After 6 years of restoration, the Mary Valley Rattler has got a full head of steam and is ready to share the scenery from Amamoor to Gympie. Admire the historical display at Gympie Station before enjoying lunch on the platform. This afternoon, continue on to Hervey Bay where we’ll settle in for the next two nights.

Day 2 B, L, D

Today enjoy a half day whale watching cruise including morning tea and buffet lunch. Naturally, weather conditions and sighting whales cannot be guaranteed, however, every opportunity is provided to view the Humpbacks from your comfortable vessel with room to move around to maximise seeing whale activity and photographic opportunities of these majestic creatures. This afternoon, after returning to the mainland, take time to explore the Esplanade before a visit to Australiana Cottage Crafts specialising in locally made and most certainly Australian gifts and nick-nacks. Don’t overlook some of the early remedies from various common herbs spices.

Day 3 B, L

After breakfast, we farewell Hervey Bay and travel to the fishing village of Tin Can Bay for morning tea. Continue on to the popular coastal town of Tewantin for lunch before making our way back into Brisbane where your transfers will be arranged.
