Why work, live and play in The Whitsundays?
Do as much or as little as you like while you navigate your way through The Whitsundays, join other travellers on a packaged overnight sailing adventure. Unwind on the deck of a tallship, set up camp on one of the many uninhabited islands, or experience the fun to be had in Airlie Beach. Drop anchor in a secluded cove, take a dip or snorkel over fringing reefs with a myriad of colourful fish and stunning corals.
Not to be missed is the adrenalin-pumping action of a jetski, powerboat or rafting tour where you can skim across the water at high speed. Or take to the skies on a scenic flight, soar above the islands, reef and Heart Reef, a stunning natural composition of coral in the perfect shape of a heart, located in Hardy Reef, part of The Whitsunday stretch of Great Barrier Reef.
All in all, The Whitsundays is full of bucket-list-ticking landmarks and activities and sinking your toes into the pure white sand of Whitehaven Beach on Whitsunday Island has to be one of them! The crystal-clear aqua waters and pristine silica sand of world-famous Whitehaven Beach stretch over seven kilometres along Whitsunday Island, the largest of the 74 islands in the Whitsunday group. Not to be missed is the walk up to the lookout where you will enjoy the breathtaking beauty of Hill Inlet. It defines nature at its best and provides an amazing sense of relaxation and escape.
