The Whitsundays are found right in the heart of the World Heritage listed Great Barrier in Tropical North Queensland. Captain Cook named the region after the day he first saw this dazzling chain of emerald islands dotting on the Coral Sea.
The Whitsundays encompasses 74 spectacular islands, only eight of which are inhibited, spanning from the beautiful beaches of Bowen in the north to the inland town of Proserpine to the gorgeous golf greens of Laguna Whitsundays in the south.
This iconic Australian holiday destination offers incredible diversity, breathtaking beauty and unique flora and fauna. Visitors enjoy an abundance of choice when it comes to leisure pursuits.
You can sail the turquoise waters while island hopping, visit the powder white sands of the famous Whitehaven Beach, jump aboard a helicopter or seaplane and view the romantic Heart Reef or snorkel or dive into the magical world of the Great Barrier Reef.
Within the Whitsundays lies Long Island, just one of many tropical island getaways. The Island is surrounded by National Parks and boasts 20 kilometres of walking tracks, secluded beaches and pristine waters.
Arlie Beach on the mainland offers easy access to the Whitsundays with transfers and tours leaving daily or you can simply fly direct to Hamilton Island.
