There are so many places in Australia to visit that are off the beaten path and with a week to capture as much beauty as possible, there is no better place than the East Coast. Cairns may be known as the gateway to Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, but did you know it’s also the gateway to the agriculturally rich town of Innisfail and the ancient valley of Tully?
With both towns located between Cairns and Townsville, you can take your time exploring the two small towns or just skip them all together and head straight to Townsville. But, if the beach is more your scene, you could head down and soak up the laid-back, tropical atmosphere of Airlie Beach.
But this is your getaway, and we want you to do it your way - that’s the beauty of an East Coast Whimit! You have the freedom to travel anywhere, staying for however long you want.
