If you're ever in Airlie Beach I'd highly recommend doing an experience with Red Cat. Their office in town is easy to find. Our tour guides were Emily, Jenny and JJ. They were all so nice! Our driver JJ was super energetic and had a WEALTH of knowledge about the area, indigenous history and the Great Barrier Reef. The trip to Cedar Creek Falls was awesome and finishing the day off at the Coral Sea Resort was great!

Awesome waterfall experience! We were taken up to the top of the waterfall (10 minutes) where there were rock pools to swim in! Then we walked back down and spent time swimming in the waterfalls! We finished off the tour with a delicious lunch at the coral sea resort where we could chill by the pool and enjoy the rest of the day! Which normally is $40 entry into the resort so great value for money with entry, lunch and an alcoholic beverage provided! Our guide was lovely and knowledgable about the area of Airlie Beach and kept us entertained for the day!
