It makes me reflect all the more on how peaceful our own visit is. We’ll soon be back in the comfort of Qualia and exclusive use of its yacht has made our Whitehaven excursion a one-of-a-kind experience – with the journey no less memorable than the beach itself.
Chartering Qualia’s Palm Beach 55 costs $4,500 (£2,500) per half-day, or $6,500 (£3,600) for a full day (up to 12 guests; includes skipper and host; catering costs extra). Pavilions at Qualia start from $1,500 (£815) per night.
Original Travel’s tailor-made Queensland itinerary pairs five nights at Qualia with four nights in the Daintree Rainforest, two nights glamping and one night in Brisbane from £6,580 per person (two sharing), including flights and transfers.
