Okay I am embarrassed to ask a dopey question. I am swinging through Airlie Beach on a world wind tour from the US. I'll get there in morning on Tuesday, and was planning on leaving on Friday.
So dopey question -- are the Whitsundays Islands on the Great Barrier Reef? Everyone says I need to go see the GBR, and I was wondering if the islands are it, or I need to take a boat out further to go see it?
My plan was to take the Whitehaven Express one day to see Whitehaven and islands. No idea for second day. A boat to the reef?
