Whitsundays or Fraser Island?

Recommendations for either the Whitsundays or Fraser Island?? Would be traveling in mid to late June 2006. What's the weather like - are activities shut down during this time?

1. Re: Whitsundays or Fraser Island?

it depends on what you want to do. activities are open year round (with the exception of swimming on the beaches up north during stinger season.... but that won't affect you). being winter i would go the the whitsundays which are significantly further north than fraser island (just out of brisbane). the water will be warmer for swimmming and there is more to see in the way of snorkling and diving. however if you are interested in bushwalking and national parks i would go for fraser..... it is truely beautiful. a mistake a lot of people make is thinking that fraser is an island resort, its not. its a national park with a small eco-resort at one end and the rest is largly virgin bush.
