SEPTEMBER – NOTHING PLANNED

 

OCTOBER 5 NIGHT TRIP TO CAIRNS – MONDAY 12 – 17 OCTOBER

Whilst final costs are yet to be finalised, the intention is to do this trip of 5 nights / 6 days in October 12-17. It is expected that the costs will be around $2,000 PP twin share. Single supplement will be approximately $2500 The reason for the unconfirmed price is that flights are yet to be booked and will not be booked until confirmation of numbers and a deposit of $600 PP has been achieved.
The trip will entail the following:
5 night’s accommodation at the Pacific Hotel Cairns with a buffet breakfast (hotel may change)

  • Transfers to and from Cairns airport
  • Cape Tribulation & Daintree Rainforest tour (approx. 12 hours duration)
  • Day Trip – Quicksilver Great Barrier Reef Cruise
  • Day Trip – The best of Cairns Tablelands
  • 2 free days for your own exploration or rest

So, we are looking for likely starters who will commit to putting up a $600 deposit. You should be aware that this initial deposit will secure your flight. Any cancellation of your commitment will result in a penalty for cancellation which will come out of your deposit. Deposits can be made at Thomas Street or into the Social & Recreation Bank Account: BSB: O62 140, Account No:11333496
We are looking at Friday 14 February as the cut -off date for names and payment of a deposit of $600 PP.
