Day Trips

Sapphire Transfers can offer custom designed day or half day tours for you. With a group of four or more people, scheduled day tours can take a huge chunk out of your budget.

It can work out cheaper and a whole lot more enjoyable taking a private charter day trip with us. You can choose a civilised hour for pick up, which attractions you visit and when you return.

Public House Appreciation Tour (PHAT)​

The PHAT is an architecturally themed, ale infused journey that drinks in the rich history of the Atherton Tablelands and Cassowary Coast.

We celebrate the central role of the public house in country Queensland and their unique design aesthetic.

This epic day covers approximately 280km and climbs to an elevation of 830m above sea level offering glorious vistas and venerable establishments at every turn.

The procession of architectural marvels are punctuated by natural attractions such as majestic Curtain Fig and the sobering reminder of the cost of war at the Afghanistan Avenue of Honour in Yungaburra.

The PHAT is not suitable for children or those with an aversion to cold beer, red meat and good banter.

The tour is designed to be sold as a private charter for small groups of friends/colleagues etc thereby avoiding the need to share your good fortune with complete strangers.

The PHAT is the perfect antidote to the usual hinterland day tour as it is devoid of art galleries, craft boutiques, souvenir shops or devonshire teas.

Beach Crawl

Cairns has many beautiful beaches, but they are not found close to the city. The northern suburban corridor known as the Northern Beaches contains a series of coastal jewels, each with their own character.

We take you on a fun filled beach ‘crawl’ that includes stops for lunch and dinner (at your cost) and several opportunities to swim.

Southern Explorer
Including the following locations and attractions:
Skyrail Express

Most visitors to a combination of the Skyrail Rainforest Cableway and the Kuranda Scenic Railway which takes the best part of a day.
If time is an issue, then why not just do the Skyrail which is the more spectacular experience of the two.

We can transfer you up to the rainforest town of Kuranda, show you some sights along the way, then put you on the Skyrail for the downhill journey (best way) and then meet you at the terminal down the bottom.

From there you can fit in some other experiences for the rest of the day.
