  3. 3) Once you click on “Submit” you will be directed to our payment gateway (Paypal) to make your deposit.  Note that you do not need to have a paypal account and that you can simply use your credit card.
  4. 4) You will receive a confirmation email from our booking system, along with an email from paypal which is your receipt for your deposit.
  5. 5) We will make request from the operators along the route for you.
  6. 6) Once we have a confirmation of your accommodation and any tours that you have requested, we will email you a confirmation with a booking reference number.  You can now book your other flights/accommodation with confidence.  This email will also have details on Cairns accommodation etc.
