What You Can Expect

After morning pickup at your Airlie Beach hotel, begin your scenic journey to Hydeaway Bay in a comfortable climate-controlled minivan.

Hear informative commentary from your guide as you pass sugarcane farms, then learn about mud crabs during a stop at an expert crabber's shop where you can purchase crab at a discount to go with your seafood lunch.

Continue to beautiful Dingo Beach and Hydeaway Bay. Snap photos of the postcard-perfect fringing reefs and pretty island. Discover more of Shag Island while gazing over the bay, which is home to a dugong sanctuary and the town of Bowen, the oldest town in Queensland.
