Golden Beaches - Half Day, Full Day or Overnight

An hour south of Cairns is one of the best beaches in north Queensland for photography. For a half day tour, an afternoon low tide is preferable to fully appreciate the area. Otherwise a more leisurely full day will give everyone more time to explore further including nearby Eubenangee Swamp with its variety of birdlife and ominous creekside scenery. Depart between 12.30pm to 1pm for half day or 8am for full day. Bring a hat and light shoes (they may get wet) and sunscreen and insect repellent, if necessary, can be provided. Return whenever you feel like it! Light lunch provided on day tour.

Overnight tours are available for those who enjoy camping in a rainforest setting next to tropical beaches. Please enquire.
