The Whitsundays has its adventurous side for those who like a bit of action with their holiday!

You can dive, snorkel and sail in the Whitsundays with the Great Barrier Reef providing a natural shelter that ensures safe, calm waters.

There is also excellent fishing, including rivers, lakes, estuaries and ocean fishing. Chasing giant trevally on the outer reef is an adrenalin packed pastime.

There is also a wide choice of watersports on offer in the Whitsundays including jetskiing and wake boarding for the speed-freaks and parasailing if you want to get high over the islands and mainland.

And for the ultimate high, you can skydive from a plane at several thousand feet above the ground, enjoying the best view of the Whitsundays as you hurtle through the air on your aerial adventure.

If you feel like getting away from it all, why not charter a chopper and fly off to somewhere where it’s just you and the birds for company.

The Whitsunday Islands and mainland are criss-crossed by hundreds of kilometres of walking tracks, most affording stunning views and leading to secluded beaches and bays.

Don a backpack and don’t forget to wear sensible shoes and a hat and always take water with you (remember to tell someone where you’re going and what time you’ll be back).

For a very special back-to-nature experience, you can camp overnight in designated National Parks camping spots and wake up feeling as if it’s just you and the wildlife on the planet.
