Experience the best of Far North Queensland’s outback and ocean in comfort and style with this 8-day, all-inclusive getaway to two of Australia’s most luxurious lodges: Mt Mulligan and Orpheus Island. This one-of-a-kind package also includes luxury overnight rail travel onboard the iconic Spirit of Queensland and a private scenic helicopter flight between the two lodges.
Departing from Brisbane, set out on an overnight rail journey aboard the iconic Spirit of Queensland to Cairns, the gateway to tropical north Queensland. Upon arrival in Cairns, a private chauffeur will transfer you 150 kilometres north-west to the luxurious Mt Mulligan Lodge. Set upon 28,000 hectares of captivating and timeless Queensland back country, Mt Mulligan Lodge offers an escape from the everyday and a unique opportunity to experience life on a working cattle farm. During your three-night stay, you’ll enjoy unique daily experiences designed to make the most of the rugged outback territory: historic mine and township tours, ATV adventures, sunset drinks with gourmet picnic hampers and more.
On Day 5 of your trip, you’ll enjoy a private 30-minute scenic helicopter flight from Mt Mulligan to Cairns - the sweeping aerial views of the 180-million-year-old Daintree Rainforest, the lush Atherton Tablelands and the rugged terrain that surrounds the majestic Mt Mulligan itself must be seen to be believed! After quickly refuelling in Cairns, you’ll fly a further 90-minutes over picturesque coral studded sea to Orpheus Island, your gateway to the splendour of the Great Barrier Reef.
During your 3-night stay at Orpheus Island, you’ll have access to pristine dive sites boasting 1,100 of the 1,500 species of fish on the reef. You can swim, snorkel, fish or take the helm of a motorised dingy to discover the many pristine coves and reefs that fringe the island. If you’d prefer to take it easy, relax and succumb to a unique Indigenous-inspired treatment at the Gwandalan day spa.
This 8-day, all-inclusive package includes one night in a lie-flat Railbed aboard the Spirit of Queensland and six-nights’ in luxury accommodation at Mt Mulligan Lodge and Orpheus Island Lodge. All meals are included: onboard the Spirit of Queensland and at Mt Mulligan Lodge you’ll enjoy a rustic yet refined menu; while at Orpheus Island you’ll be spoiled with gourmet, ‘chef hatted’ meals at every course. You’ll enjoy a selection of quality wines, beers, spirits and soft drinks throughout the journey. All transport – including the helicopter transfer – is provided.
When it comes to Far North Queensland’s outback and ocean, this 8-day, all-inclusive package truly is the best of both worlds!
