The Whitsundays - Excitement, Magic & the Best Stories

heart-reef-whitsundays

When I was a kid, I was obsessed with tropical islands. I mean, I grew up in Newcastle, so I was no stranger to a good beach, but there was something about islands and reefs and the azure blue ocean that always completely captivated me.  Up until I was 10 years old, my family never really went on holidays as the argument always was “there’s the beach over there”, “there’s the cricket nets over there” and “there’s Agro’s Cartoon Connection on the TV” over there”, so I would always return to school after the Christmas or Easter break and be a complete sponge for the stories that the other kids would come back with from their trips to Vanuatu, Hawaii, Disneyland and yes, the Whitsundays… and I would just be in complete awe of their experiences.  To go one step further, I remember I had a pen pal in Scotland when I was in Grade 3 with whom I would trade pictures of “where we lived”.  She, of course, had castles and lochs and all that cool stuff, and I – almost wishfully thinking – would respond with a picture of the Great Barrier Reef, complete with islands covered in Cuban Royal Palms.  It was never where I actually was of course, but it was where I wanted to be.

Best Things to Do in The Whitsundays

Blog post written by Molly Long

With its clear blue waters, soft sand, tall palm trees, the Whitsundays is a true paradise in Australia. It’s composed of 74 islands bordered by the Great Barrier Reef, located in Queensland, the tropical Northern part of Australia. Many of the beaches here have been named as some of the best beaches in the entire world. It's been on my bucket list of places to visit ever since coming to Australia last time, so I was really excited for the getaway here and relax during the three days we were here for.

Sir Elton John… A Dream Come True!

For as long as I can remember I have enjoyed the sound of Elton John’s voice across the stereo. My earliest memory was being 9 years old and listening to Candle in the Wind performed for Diana, England’s Rose, a song that still brings tears to my eyes; the happy memories of Circle of Life from the Lion King; not to mention the favourites of Tiny Dancer and Blue Eyes. Living in the Whitsundays, I did not think my opportunity to hear Elton John live would be anywhere outside of the big smoke. But on the 22nd of September, I had the opportunity to be out, under the stars just south of the Whitsundays to hear Elton John perform live to an audience of 15,000 fans. He played all the favourites, along with a few newbies. We sipped wine and enjoyed being outdoors for a concert that was a dream come true. What a night!

The Whitsundays - a perfect boating playground for charterers

sailing-to-whitehaven

It’s no secret that I’m a fan ofthe Whitsundays, and you probably won’t be surprised to hear that I whole heartedly believe that the best way to experience the area is by boat. The Whitsundays have given me many of my most treasured memories: exploring with my family, racing with mates and relaxing on a charter yacht. You can spend months taking in every detail of the greater Whitsunday region, but I’ve found that the area is equally suited to a quick visit to tick off the highlights.

A hidden treasure in the Whitsundays hinterland

A hidden treasure in the Whitsundays hinterland

There are many hidden treasures in the Whitsundays and one place that’s a firm favourite with locals and visitors is Cedar Creek Falls.

Tucked away down a winding road that is mainly unsealed and crosses a small creek, Cedar Creek Falls really is hidden if you don’t know where you’re going! Luckily, the signage is great but do leave plenty of time and don’t rush.
