Whether it’s a family trip or a romantic getaway, Australia has it all – from scenic drives on remote beaches to thrilling roller coaster rides. But planning an itinerary can be quite a hassle, and the last thing you want before the vacation is a whole lot of angst. 

So leave the job up to the experts at Jetabout Holidays, who’ve got 3 tour packages to Queensland – Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast and Cairns. And yes, the reason why you’re here – there’ll be an exclusive promo for TSL readers! 

Here are the packages and highlights of each: 

 

1. 5D4N Sunshine Coast Gastronomic Adventure

 

For the foodies among us, this tour will suit your palate. Whether you’re craving for delicious Australian seafood or sinful dessert, the 5D4N Sunshine Coast Gastronomic Adventure will satisfy with gourmet food tours, food festivals and degustation dinners.

Imagine waterfront dining at Noosa Boat House, where you’ll be indulging a 3-tiered seafood platter – think freshly shucked natural oysters, mooloolaba prawns, and spanner crabs.

Or pampering yourself at Pitchfork Restaurant, where head chef Craig Galea will partner chef Alanna Sapwell of Saint Peter restaurant in Sydney to whip up an atas 4-course menu for you. Complete with wine pairings, even.

But if sit-down dining makes you restless, explore the Noosa Food and Wine Festival Village

There’ll be tasty traditional pasta and fresh pastries from Noosa’s best restaurants, a beer and cider corner, food and brewery trails and even live DJ performances – all set against breathtaking waterways and parks. 

Great Beach Drive Tour 4WD

You can also swap the city buzz for a beach highway – ocean breeze in your hair included – along the golden sands of Sunshine Coast. This time on a four-wheel drive with the 4WD Great Beach Drive Tour.

It’ll bring you to the Coloured Sands on Rainbow Beach, which is not easily accessible if you travel by foot alone. With sand cliffs towering 80 metres over the beach, you’re in for a jaw-dropping session – especially for suaku ones who’re only familiar with beige sands at ECP.

Another breathtaking stop would be the Lighthouse at Double Island Point. There, you get 360-degree views of the Pacific Ocean and if you’re lucky, sights of dolphins, turtles and whales too.

Also, take the chance to visit Eat Street Northshore, Brisbane’s largest street food market. With over 70 food vendors selling all sorts of food – from Pad Thai and Banh Mi to French Crepes and Doughnut Fries – even the most picky of eaters will find something to their liking.

To visit Cairns and miss the Great Barrier Reef is almost criminal. As the largest coral reef system that is visible even from outer space, the vast clear waters look too inviting to not want to dive right into it.  

You’ll also be completely soaked during Tully River White Water Rafting Tour, as you paddle your way through the challenging rapids and gushing waters.

If plunging into watery depths is not your cup of tea, look up and hop on a Cairns Hot Air Balloon Flight. For 30 minutes, you’ll be floating over the scenic Atherton Tablelands, thanking yourself for making it to this worthy view. 

Even if you’re afraid of heights, the gorgeous sunrise right before your eyes would probably make you forget how high up you are in the air.
