Your Whitsundays Experience Starts Here...

Your Whitsundays experience starts here...

Located in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef on the Queensland coast, lies 74 island wonders. The majority of the Whitsunday Islands are uninhabited national park islands, but four islands offer a variety of resort accommodation, all with the Great Barrier Reef and fringing coral reefs at their doorstep. Whether it be eco-style, family-friendly, all-inclusive, activity-based, food and wine focused or pure luxury - there is a Queensland resort experience to suit everyone. The Whitsundays is home to the renowned island resorts of Hamilton Island, Hayman Island, Daydream Island Resort, and Palm Bay Resort on Long Island

Let the spectacular landscape and endless horizon dotted with islands wash over you as you experience the ultimate in adventure and relaxation. A true paradise, the clear protected waters of the Whitsunday Islands lends itself to some of the best sailing in the southern hemisphere, so why not hire charter a yacht or go bareboating (skipper yourself) and be the captain of your own crew!

Relax with a sunset cocktail on board your vessel or by the resort pool. Swim at one of the many secluded beaches and witness the incredible marine life which calls the fringing reefs around the islands home. Enjoy great local seafood and produce at one of the many restaurants, and take advantage of the spa facilities to get a massage or treatment. 

Or for a more adrenalin-pumping experience, hire a jetski and skim along the water, or take in the panorama of the Whitsundays from the air in a seaplace or helicopter. Or for the ultimate birds-eye-view, take the plunge and go skydiving above one of the most amazing natural landscapes in Australia. There really is something for everyone in the Whitsundays!

The Whitsunday mainland is the ‘stepping-off’ point for the 74 Whitsunday Islands, Great Barrier Reef and the many tours and trips available.

It is also a holiday destination in itself, with vibrant townships, stunning scenery, beautiful waterfalls and walking tracks through ancient rainforest.

The Whitsunday Islands are dotted along the east coast of Queensland like emeralds in a silver sea.

They were formed when sea levels rose, which created numerous “drowned” mountains that now protrude from the Coral Sea with their distinctive spikey vegetation and rocky outcrops.

With 74 ‘island wonders’ in all, it really is a paradise for sailors, scuba divers, snorkellers and swimmers…not to mention, kayakers, paddle boarders, jetskiiers and fishermen.

Seven of the islands are developed – Hamilton Island, Hayman Island, South Molle Island, Daydream Island, Long Island and Lindeman Island.

The rest are undeveloped and are just waiting to be explored by adventurous holidaymakers keen to walk the many trails and perhaps camp overnight at designated National Park camping grounds.
