The core of any successful incentive program is that it must be motivating, and few things motivate as powerfully as incentive travel. The anticipation of a well designed, experience based incentive itinerary motivates and drives behaviour like no other. Australia is world renowned as a magical, exotic and desirable destination and nowhere in Australia delivers on this as well as the Whitsundays.

The Whitsundays is one of the most naturally enticing destinations in the world and home to spectacular natural icons including the world heritage listed Great Barrier Reef, Heart Reef and Whitehaven Beach, named one of the top 10 beaches in the world.

A travel reward is unique from other types of rewards because it is experiential and therefore remembered long after participants have departed.

In the Whitsundays guests have the opportunity to experience activities they’ve always dreamed of;

  • scuba diving the Great Barrier Reef and coming face to face with hundreds of tropical fish,
  • marvelling at the natural charm of Heart Reef and seeing the awe-inspiring patterns of the reef from the air
  • sleeping under a million stars on a floating pontoon on the Great Barrier Reef;
  • feeling the soft white silica sand of Whitehaven Beach between their toes and
  • hoisting the sails of a private catamaran and cruising the azure waters of the Coral Sea

The experiences of the Whitsundays are truly alluring and synchronise perfectly with incentive travel. Here are some examples…


For the ultimate incentive trip - awaken to exquisite views of Whitehaven Beach onboard a luxury catamaran and sail through the azure blue waters of the Whitsundays. Enjoy a scenic flight to a deserted beach for a private picnic and sleep out under the stars on the Great Barrier Reef.
