The East Coast Fiesta Package is the perfect tour for backpackers and travellers looking for a fun and sociable tours with the chance to meet new friends. This package gives you the chance to snorkel, swim, relax and scuba dive the Whitsunday Islands during the day and the party and play at night. Then get the chance to drive yourself around the worlds largest sand island and set up camp at night and all for great value.
What do you get when you combine the top two destinations of the East Coast of Australia with the top two tours in the region? The East Coast Fiesta Package! To make things even better, we are including 2 nights accommodation in both Fraser Island and Airlie Beach without raising the price tag. Explore Fraser Island on a self-drive 4WD tour and get up close and personal with the Great Barrier Reef and Whitsunday Islands as you cruise, snorkel and dive the Whitsunday Islands onboard the Atlantic Clipper.
So you can start in Airlie Beach or Fraser Island and use the nights accommodation in both places on whatever nights you like, but we would recommend using one night before and after each trip. Transportation between the two destinations is not included, the distance between Fraser Island and Airlie Beach is 960km (roughly a 12 hour drive), so you need to allow at least one day for travel. We recommend a Greyhound bus and the overnight bus is considered the most convenient and affordable way of getting from one destination to the next. Bus fees starting from $109pp.
The East Coast Fiesta is the perfect package for the 18-30s and travellers looking to experience the east coast of Australia without missing out on any of the action. The package has been designed so that you may easily fit the two destinations into your travelling itinerary whether you are flying, driving or busing it up or down the East Coast and you can leave just days between the destinations or weeks if like.
