There's no doubt that we live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, with the reef at our doorstep and Magnetic Island just a stone's throw away. But when was the last time you spend the day exploring our stunning surroundings? Offering a unique chance to experience our neighboring islands, reef, history and culture SeaLink's half and full day tours will run between April and October and will include Palm Island, Orpheus Island and Cape Cleveland Lighthouse.
"We have been overwhelmed by the response our North Queensland Adventures has generated within the local community with many of our tour dates last year selling out as soon as advertised" SeaLink general manager Chris Briggs said. "Our tours have been hugely popular with locals as they offer opportunities to visit places that many have talked about going to but have never had the chance to and, at an affordable price. Our guest feedback from those who have previously joined us quote memorable experiences and a great day out".
SeaLink will be offering a great variety of tours so there is sure to be something for everyone.
Cape Cleveland Lighthouse Tour: Experience a half day tour to one of the region's most sought after destinations, the Cape Cleveland Lighthouse. Built in 1879 the lighthouse was the first to be built in Townsville and the isolation and beauty of this part of North Queensland is just as striking today as it was in the early years.
Palm Island Day Tour: Palm Island invites you to Come Over! Enjoy the stunning North Queensland scenery as you cruise up to Great Palm Island where you will arrive to a traditional welcome to Palm experience, then get to know the locals and stroll through the beach side markets before learning more about the art and history of the Island. Alternatively you may wish to explore what lies beneath as you snorkel the fringing reefs in the Palm Island group of islands.
Orpheus Island Tour: Enjoy a relaxing scenic cruise to Yanks Jetty, Orpheus Island with a BBQ lunch served on-board on the way. Upon arrival you'll have plenty of time to stroll on the beach, relax by the jetty or take a dip in the clear blue waters as you snorkel over fringing reefs.
Great Barrier Reef Day Trip: Discover what lies beneath and explore the Great Barrier Reef as we take you on an exclusive day trip to Kelso Reef. Whether your'e a beginner or an underwater enthusiast from way back this day caters for all.
