But remember, you're not in Surfer's forever, so do this thing right - don't stay in bed when there's a parachute with your name on it at the nearby skydiving centre. How's that for a rush of adrenaline? In the afternoon just make sure you're back (on earth) in time for some serious koala cuddling sessions at Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary.

The Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary is undeniably a must-see destination if you've made it as far as Surfer's Paradise. Here's your chance to see how cute koalas really are, feed a kangaroo & see a crocodile up close (but not too close, obvs). Best of all, it's a non-for-profit set up, so our visit supports the sanctuary's animal hospital and gives back to Oz's furry friends. Soak up on all the cuteness this place has to offer before we head back to Surfer's for some sweet night time 4WD'ing.

TOURSTYLE
Contiki bietet ideale Touren für alle von 18-35 Jahren. Urlaub wie wir ihn mögen: "Abenteuer, Spaß & Flexibilität" sind unser Motto. Weil wir eine internationale Gruppe Gleichgesinnter sind, teilen wir eine Sprache: Englisch. Daher ist es notwendig, sich wenigstens einigermaßen in Englisch zu verständigen. Wir reisen in modernen Reisebussen und wohnen in ausgesuchten Hotels und landestypischen Unterkünften. Contiki Holidays bietet unzählige Freizeitbeschäftigungen und ein volles Gruppenprogramm. Weil wir aber wissen, dass jeder auch seine eigene Freiheit braucht, bleibt viel Zeit für eigene Erkundungen, um die Dinge aus eigenem Blickwinkel zu entdecken.

AN- & ABREISE
Diese Tour beginnt am ersten Tag um 07:00 Uhr im Tourhotel in Sydney. Am letzten Tag endet die Reise gegen 17:00 Uhr in Cairns.

Plant am besten immer so, daß ihr schon am Tag vor Tourbeginn am Ort seid und auch am Ende noch einmal übernachtet. Die preiswerten Contiki-Gateway Hotels könnt ihr gleichzeitig mit eurer Tourbuchung reservieren.

VARIANTE
Diese Tour ist auch in umgekehrter Richtung buchbar:



TOURVARIANTE - MIT WHITSUNDAY SEGELTÖRN:
Du möchtest die Whitsunday Island lieber von einem Segelboot aus erleben? Dann entscheide dich für die Tour mit dem inkludierten 2-tägigen Segeltörn in den Whitsunday Inseln (statt dem Aufenthalt im Resort auf Daydream Island):
