The Whitsundays

The Whitsundays is in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef on the Queensland coast, 150km north of Mackay and 200km south of Townsville, and ascends out of the rich blue tropical waters that lie in an archipelago of green islands and sandy atolls.

The romance of Heart Reef, the kaleidoscopic colours and shapes of the corals, the soft white sands of Whitehaven Beach and the crystal clear waters make the Whitsundays an attractive destination for all.

The Whitsundays emphasises relaxation and getting in touch with nature. Activities range from sailing, sea plane, helicopter, skydiving, sea kayaking, camping, fishing, snorkelling and diving. The Whitsundays is a diverse destination position within the picturesque Great Barrier Reef region. icon
