Be sure to find time to discover the diversity of the Whitsunday Coast and Hinterland by car. The lush greens of the tropical rainforest of Eungella National Park and Conway National Park begin south of the Whitsundays, meandering north through the cane fields of Proserpine and diversifying west to the reds, browns and greens of Collinsville. The fusion of colours and abundant landscape of the Whitsunday Coast and Hinterland is as beautiful as the azure blue of the Coral Sea along the coastline. Tourism Whitsundays has compiled a Drive Trail Map to help guide you around the Whitsunday Coast and Hinterland.
