We are open for business in a reduced capacity, and remain committed to assisting you in every way possible.

Good news is that Qantas, Jetstar and Virgin are increasing the number of flights to Cairns.  Whereas we have, to date, only been providing PRIVATE transfers, we have recently turned SEAT-IN-COACH back on.  The number of trips will be increased to match the airlines' schedules.

Few details are at hand at this stage, but what we find out will be routinely added to the dedicated COVID/Flights and Transfers page. In summary, your transfer options:

  • Private Transfers available 24/7.
  • Seat-in-Coach: Currently three return Port Douglas/Airport trips/day. Increasing to five 01-09 JUN, and many more post 10 JUL if (when!) the Queensland borders open.

COVID-19 Safe  We are fully complient and our procedures are here.

Making Bookings. Our New Booking pages (one Public and one Agent) have been reopened.  If you are in any doubt please contact the office for advice.

Office is manned by one person 0900-1300, Monday to Saturday. Available on regular phone number (07) 4213 3333 and 

Duty Manager available outside these 'office hours' for urgent/emergency matters on 0409 759 375.

Drivers are doing little driving, but remain committed to staying connected and are doing a great job in applying spit and polish to the fleet, office and depot.

Managers remain plugged in and ready to assist:

  • Assistant General Manager, Sam:
  • Customer Relations, Dean:  
  • Finance, Sam:                   
  • Administration, Fiona:         
  • Vehicles, Norton:                

Exemplar has been around for 27 years. This little hiccup is not going to beat us!

Please stay safe. See you out the other side.

Kind regards,

Cheryl and Gordon
