Discover tropical paradise in your own backyard

Stay close to home but feel a million miles away in picturesque Far North Queensland. Cruise to the stunning towns of Cairns, Port Douglas or Airlie Beach for an idyllic holiday amongst turquoise waters, white sand beaches and swaying palm trees. Read your book by the pool, explore local markets and sample freshly caught local seafood. Or, take a leisurely snorkel beneath the waves to marvel at the spectacular sea life on the Great Barrier Reef Discovery cruise.
