Leave the daily grind behind for a relaxing and adventure-filled holiday in Tropical North Queensland where pristine beaches, underwater adventure and World Heritage rainforests await.
Need some convincing? Let's compare the uncomfortable commuting and stressful work experiences many of us encounter every day to the fun experiences we could be having if we were in tropical Cairns or Port Douglas.
Stuck in a traffic jam on a packed bus that’s going nowhere and the only scenery is the back of the head of the person in front of you. Personal space is a luxury.
Cruising on a catamaran surrounded by the crystal blue waters of the Great Barrier Reef, then snorkelling amongst the marine life and the colourful underwater landscapes, followed by a smorgasbord lunch. Now this is luxury! Sign me up!
Arrive late to the first of your back-to-back meetings, your to-do list is mounting with every hour that passes, everything is urgent and stress levels are soaring!
Arrive at gorgeous Green Island on the Great Barrier Reef to explore all this little piece of paradise has to offer from its stunning coral cay, lush rainforests and idyllic beaches. Maybe you’ll go snorkelling or take a glass bottom boat tour or perhaps relax by the pool or on the beach...*Sigh* Let’s go!
Work, eat, sleep, repeat. You spend the day staring at the computer and the same beige wall. Feeling uninspired, run-down and in desperate need of fresh scenery, stimulation and some R&R.
Cruise, snorkel and scuba dive in the aqua waters of the Agincourt Reef and take in the wonder of an underwater world of stunning coral, tropical fish and sea creatures. It's scensory overload in a good way. Book me in!
A packed footpath with people rushing to get to work with stress-inducing noise from traffic, loud phone conversations, roadwork drilling and blaring horns. So much for that zen state of mind post-early morning yoga class.
A forest path leading the way to spectacular waterfalls with stunning scenery along the way. The sound of cascading mountain water and birdlife brings a sense of wonder and calm. Take me there!
Sitting in a cramped cubicle in a windowless office space where walking to the water fountain is the highlight of your day.
Take in the amazing aerial view of the World Heritage Rainforest from the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway then take the Kuranda Scenic Railway to Kuranda Village where an array of food stalls, cafes, markets and wildlife parks await. Count me in!
