Day 1: Toowoomba to Hervey Bay

Head to Brisbane to board the Tilt Train bound for Maryborough then coach ride to Hervey Bay.

Day 2: Fraser Island Tour

After breakfast board the ferry to Fraser Island for a day of touring including a visit to a former logging station, a stroll along the Wanggoolba Creek boardwalk amongst ancient King Ferns and towering Gums. Have a swim at Lake McKenzie in the crystal blue waters or relax on the sandy white beaches. Drive the sandy highway of Seventy-Five Mile Beach to the fast flowing Eli Creek. We’ll stop to see the famous Maheno Shipwreck exploring the technicolour Pinnacles Coloured Sands.

Day 3: A Relaxing Christmas Day

This Christmas Day you’ll barely have to lift a finger. Have a leisurely breakfast and for those who wish, the coach will transfer you to church services. Mid morning take a scenic drive through the Hervey Bay area, see the Great Sandy Straits Marina, Torquay and Point Vernon. A delicious Christmas feast will be waiting for you upon returning to the resort, and Santa may even make a visit. Relax at the resort in the afternoon before a light dinner.

Day 4: Bundaberg Sightseeing

Start the day touring Bundaberg at the awe inspiring Hinkler Hall of Aviation where the building is as unique and interesting as the stories of the aviators that are presented inside. Take a flight in the simulator and enjoy a short movie in the theatrette. See the rest of Bundaberg’s sights including Bundaberg’s most visited attraction – the Bundaberg Rum Distillery. Take a Distillery Experience guided tour around to the grand Barrelhouse to see swirling wells of molasses, and learn the mysterious processes of fermentation and distillation.

Day 5: Hervey Bay to Home

On the final day, the tour farewells the resort and sets a course for Maryborough for a 2 hour “Mary Heritage tour” with a period costumed guide. Take in all the sights of this historic city, nestled on the banks of the Mary River. See beautifully preserved colonial streets and heritage architecture before exploring what was once one of Australia’s largest ports, now home to vintage restaurants, pubs, museums and art galleries. Jump into the magical world of Mary Poppins and visit the heritage-listed building where she was born. After lunch, head back south to Toowoomba.
