The Whitsundays are just so lovely. Each Island is different, some are deserted, others are sparse and there are a few resorts. We avoided these as we were looking for seclusion. We walked, climbed and sailed to all areas. The beaches are wonderful with White Haven topping the list with a breathtaking vista when viewed from the viewpoint accessed from... More

The Whitsunday Islands are a group of 74 islands bordered by the Great Barrier Reef, located off the coast of Queensland. Tall palm trees, clear blue water, white sand and a soothing atmosphere, this place is no less than paradise. One can enjoy the island, either by relaxing on the beach or my swimming and scuba diving in the waters.... More

I believe that Whitehaven beach is the highlight of the Whitsunday Islands, amazing view from the lookout. Also did snorkeling by Hook Island which was nice, plenty of fish to see.

I spent some time on Daydream, Hamilton and Whitehaven as part of a package I purchased. I loved loved loved Whitehaven Beach, it is is spectacular with the picturesque white silicon sand and the crystal clear blue waters. This my new favorite place and I can not wait to go back again. Hamilton Island and Daydream Island were both great... More

Whitsunday Islands is one of the most beautiful things on the east coast of Australia! If you have the opportunity go both on a boat and take a trip with a seaplane! Most people only sail the Whitsundays, which is really nice - especially visiting Whitehaven beach with the clear water and white special, white sand. But seeing everything from... More

We took our boat up and cruised the Whitsundays for a month, it was magic. September was perfect weather (they say it's the best time to go) and every few days we would book in for a night at the Hamilton Island Marina to refuel, stock up with groceries and water. There are lots of walks and islands and beaches... More

The main attraction of Whitsunday Islands is probably Whitehaven beach. It's so beautiful and interesting to watch from above, but on the beach there is not really a lot to do. It's not the best place to go for a swin. The sand however is so fine, it's said you can brush your teeth with it and that will make... More
