Day 1 - Friday, March 30: Cairns
We set foot in Cairns and mark the start of our trip. First on today's planned activities we are going on the Crystal Cascades hike. This secluded freshwater swimming hole will give us a chance to take in some nature and have a nice, cool dip to refresh ourselves after being fresh off our flights. After that we will be having a group workout to get our blood pumping! Later on in the evening we will be having our intro dinner so that we can all become better acquainted with one another. The Cairns Esplanade is lined with amazing bars and restaurants to choose from, and you can bet we're going to be having an amazing first night!
Day 2 - Saturday, March 31: Daintree National Park
Today we will be taking a hike through the Mossman Gorge! We will have a yoga session to start our day and then make our way over to Daintree National Park where the Mossman Gorge is located. It is a 1.8km walk from the Mossman Gorge center to the gorge itself, so we will be able to enjoy the surrounding environment as we make our way to the Trailhead. From there, there are a variety of activities to choose from, such as heading over to the Mossman Gorge Lookout to take some stunning pictures, taking a cool dip in the river, or traversing the Rainforest Circuit Track for a 2.4km roundtrip. In the evening we will be paying a visit to the Cairns Night Markets, which is a must for anyone visiting Cairns.

Day 3 - Sunday, April 1: Great Barrier Reef
We will be moving on from seeing green to seeing blue today as we've got a full day of diving ahead of us in none other than the Great Barrier Reef! Start the day with a group workout and then head on over to make the cruise to our diving spot. The reef boasts a wide amount of biodiversity so there's lots to see under the surface of the water. For first time divers, this is a great chance to learn and experience one of the most revered dive spots in the whole world.
Day 4 - Monday, April 2: Cairns
Today we wrap our trip. We'll be making our way to the airport to catch our flights, but all the while we will be looking back at an amazing time with our fellow trippers. With many new memories and friendships made, this is a trip that you won't soon forget.
