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

If you want to see first hand the many sea life, from turtles, fish, sharks, or just want to relax on one of the many Islands that are within the Whitsundays, this will be such an amazing and fun filled place for you to visit. So many Islands to choose from where you what to enjoy. A place for families,... 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

Hamilton Island, one of the Whitsunday Islands off the coast of Brisbane, Australia is a great place to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery. A short boat ride (I took a ferry) to the Great Coral Reef is a must.

Flew into Hamilton Island airport directly and I must say it is truly a holiday destination. Only 30 percent of the island has been developed. The rest remains literally untouched. The island is incredible...easy to get around and can easily go to many of the 74 surrounding islands. Am just leaving and had to write before I forgot! The latest... More

My trip started with a sailboat charter out of Airlie Beach where I met other travellers from around the world. You can join in and sail the boat or sit back and relax while you island hop through the Whitsunday's. Nothing has compared to the crystal clear warm ocean waters teaming with marine life. Snorkelling, diving and exploring the islands... More
