Think of the words ‘tropical paradise.’ Conjure up an image in your head. Now make that image at least 50 percent better and you might be getting somewhere close to encapsulating just how picture-perfect the Whitsunday region of Queensland is.
The Whitsunday Islands - an archipelago of 74 islands off the northeast coast - are all fringed with stunning white beaches and surrounded by glimmering oceans with the deepest turquoise, aqua and indigo colours you’re ever likely to see. Meanwhile, the towns and coastal resorts along the coast are brimming with activities to enhance your holiday.
You don’t need photo expertise to capture the incredible colours of the water that surrounds the Whitsundays island wonders. Tiny particles of coral sand in the water scatter the sunlight as it enters the water, causing that astonishing glow that will elicit signs of envy from the folks back home when they see your holiday snaps. Don’t miss the stunning sunrise over Whitehaven Beach, considered the jewel in the crown of the Whitsundays and regularly tops lists of the world’s best beaches.
Whether you’re seeking an action-packed adventure or are looking to enjoy levels of indulgence and relaxation, you’re guaranteed to find it in the Whitsundays.

Deserted sands and aqua-marine water are the very definition of a picture-perfect holiday, and Fraser Island, just 35 minutes by boat from the mainland, offers an abundance of both. The sand is as fine as flour and a dazzling shade of white. You’ll have miles upon miles of shoreline to yourself and a landscape which is virtually untouched. Climb the icy white sand dunes, kayak a creek, snorkel the bays, or simply bask in sunshine, Fraser island is the complete dream scene.
Whether you’re looking to do plenty or nothing at all, Hamilton Island is the ultimate getaway. Hamilton Island is part of one of the natural Wonders of the World, the Great Barrier Reef. There is more than enough activities on Hamilton Island to keep you entertained for weeks, from snorkelling the reef to scenic helicopter flights. And believe us, after all that, you’ll be
hungry. Which is great, as there is an endless array of wine and dine options here.
The vibrant hub of the Whitsundays and the ideal mainland base for fun and adventure. Soak up the laid-back, tropical atmosphere and instantly tune into holiday mode. Stroll through the boutiques, cafés and shops of the main street; relax by the Airlie Beach lagoon and head to the Saturday morning markets that offer a quaint range of local arts and crafts and much more!
Take a scenic flight over Fraser island, soaking up the coastal views and idyllic McKenzie Lake which is hidden deep inside the island’s interior
Indulge in some super fresh seafood at The Vineyard Restaurant in Hervey Bay. The scallops are to die for.
Depart the jetty at Hervey Bay onboard a sunset cruise and enjoy a glass of Champagne or two while the sun descends over the water
Another hot spot on this coast is Hervey Bay, considered Australia’s whale watching capital due to the annual
visit made by humpback whales on their way from Northern Queensland to Antarctica between July and November. Fishing, sailing and glass-bottomed boat trips, museums and art galleries, sheltered beaches and a mild climate – it’s little wonder that the region’s catchphrase is ‘Perfect by Nature’.
