Port of Call - Whitsundays

Aquamarine waters, white sandy beaches and 74 practically deserted islands are just some of the characteristics of the beautiful Whitsundays region of Queensland, Australia.

Located right in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef, the islands of the Whitsundays are among the most beautiful in the world and offer the perfect escape from everyday life.

Relax on the famous Whitehaven Beach, snorkel on the pristine waters of the coral reefs and party until the early hours of the morning at Airlie Beach.

The possibilities in the Whitsundays are endless. The hardest part will be deciding how to fill your time here.

What to Explore
Expand

Airlie Beach

Regarded as Australia's ultimate party town, Airlie Beach is renowned worldwide for its prime location, stunning surrounds and lively nightlife.

As the hub of the Whitsundays, Airlie Beach offers a wealth of shopping and dining facilities, along with sun swept beaches, shaded by tropical palms and useful walkways.

The beautiful swimming lagoon set in the parklands overlooking the ocean are ideal for families with young kids, or those just wanting to swim without the hassle of wearing stinger suits.

Young travellers can dance and drink the night away at pubs, clubs and bars that line the main street of town, with happy hour generally lasting well into the night.

Daydream Island

Daydream Island is a place where dreams really can come true. Measuring only 1km in length and only 400m at its widest point, the island has just two tourist resorts, and well, not a lot else.

A hot spot for sailing enthusiasts, it offers a unique outdoor aquarium, endless opportunities for snorkeling, sail-boarding, jet-skiing, parasailing, scuba diving, tennis and volleyball.

Whitehaven Beach

Everything you see in the postcards is real! From the pure white sand, to the transparent green and blue waters; Whitehaven Beach never fails to live up to tourist's expectations.

Hike up to the lookout to soak it all in before trekking along the pure white sand and splashing into the clearest of clear waters. There really is nothing quite like it!
