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

We took a day trip package out from Airlie beach for breakfast on Daydream Island and lunch on Hamilton Island. Unfortunately there was a cyclone on its way so the weather wasn't great. Daydream Island consists of a resort and I think it would be lovely in good weather as there are many pools and beaches. We had a lovely... More

Went to the Whitsundays in mid jan and apparently arrived just as storms and high winds did. This meant that a lot of activities we were looking forward to (such as hiring our own dinghy, or kayaking) weren't possible. However still had a fabulous time! We stayed on Airlie beach to be more cost effective as resort prices were steep... More
