I spent 3 days on south molle island with koala adventure resort and it was great. I was travelling with my friends in Australia and decided to book there to do the great barrier reef. We were not disappointed at all. This island is beautiful, good accommodation and food and the staff was really professional. The group we were with... More

The general trend of the reviews of this trip are all spot on. This trip was horrendous. When booking this trip a few weeks before in Out of Bounds, Byron Bay we were told that we couldn't miss this trip. It was sold to us as 2 nights 3 days at a beautiful scenic hotel, with amazing food, plenty of... More

Day 1 After starting at 2 p.m. We arrived at the resort at 7 p.m. First day is gone... After dinner the stuff is playing drinking games with some guys to sell alcohol. Day 2 Stay on the boat for four hours... Get to white haven. See nothing because no on shows you the nice spots on it. After one... More

I was greatly looking forward to the Whitsundays as one of the highlights of my 5 week trip in Australia. Whitehaven beach and views of all the islands did not disappoint at all, achieving exactly what I wanted. However, the tour package itself with Pride of Airlie and the resort stay were massively missold (booked through wicked travel). These have... More

BY FAR THE *WORST* EXCURSION TRIP I HAVE EVER DONE IN ALL MY YEARS OF TRAVELLING. the boat was 4 hours late departing for south molle island, which was at top an hour's drive away, which meant all of our first day activities' we cancelled. in the 4 hours we were left stranded on the anchored boat, we were not...

WARNING TO ALL HUMAN BEINGS DON'T DO THIS TRIP. For our "adventure trip" we spent half an hour on whitehaven beach and the another 11 hours puking over the side of the boat. This review may sound radical however we made the mistake of going on it so please read all the reviews as everything is true. This trip should... More

Me and three other guys booked this tour through Travel Bugs in Sydney a few weeks beforehand and were advised by the salesman that it was an incredibly popular and successful trip. There is a YouTube video that, with some careful editing, has made this appear that way... The day before leaving Airlie for the Whitsundays we thought we'd have... More

This is the worst, most poorly organised, and misleading tour that I have ever had the misfortune of experiencing. The "paradise resort" which they take you to is an abandonned cyclone damaged resort which they must have bought on the cheap. Out of the 200 rooms which the resort has, only around 15-20 are habitable. The pool and bar are... More

I stayed 2 nights in the resort as part of the Pride of Airlie visit to the Whitsundays. Because of the cyclone we ended up traveling there with only 9 people, which made things very laid back and personal. The island is amazing and the staff took really good care of us, showing us around en singing along on karaoke... More

Ok so when we first arrived on the island i thought yes this is beautiful, rooms are pretty standard like any hostel, bunk beds etc, we had a fridge which was handy. It was advertised you can do paddleboarding, this never got mentioned. The food 1st night was spag bol which was alright and I am the worlds least fussiest... More
