Whitsunday Islands

The Whitsunday Islands, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, truly are a spectacular destination lying between the Australian mainland and the Great Barrier Reef. With direct access to the reef, these islands have beauty all their own with expansive beaches, dense rainforests, and dramatic mountains. Perfect for island hopping, these 74 islands only stretch about 40 miles total allowing you to visit several in one day. Recently, the Whitsundays have become the winter destination of choice. Explore the shoreline of untouched beaches, enjoy a night on the town, or test your skills at trying to hook “granders” – the thousand-pound marlins. Whether you decide to trek the rainforests ashore or adventure to the coral reefs below the water’s surface, there is always a sight to be seen at the Whitsunday Islands.
