On land or on the water, seen from high above or just below the tropical waterline, the natural beauty of the Whitsundays captivates like no other place on Earth.

Ancient volcano remnants now form a chain of 74 islands (mostly national parks) dotted along the coastline like stepping-stones between the mainland and the Great Barrier Reef, one of the Seven Wonders of the Natural World.

In addition to visiting a world class resort such as One & Only Hayman or qualia on Hamilton Island, enjoy the reef with swimming, snorkeling or diving, the region is packed full of activities, from sailing, scenic flights, bush walks, jet skiing, barramundi fishing to golf.

The tropical Whitsunday region is internationally known for sailing. Home to Hamilton Island Race Week and Airlie Beach Race Week, the Whitsunday waters are a yachtsman’s paradise.

From massive national parks to the world’s largest reef and from sandy beaches and tropical islands to unique wildlife and marine animals, the Whitsundays is the perfect backdrop for the best time of your life.


National Park

The exceptional beauty of Airlie Beach is richly enhanced by the fact that it is completely surrounded by natural parks. From the rainforest-clad mountains of Conway National Park, to the rugged rocky cliffs of the Whitsunday Island National Park, there are infinite ways for bushwalkers, campers, or just casual picnickers to immerse themselves in nature and take in the scenery.



Whether it is the pure majesty of seeing the humpback whale breaching and frolicking with her cub, or swimming with the rare and endangered Dugong or Large Green Sea Turtle, or stumbling across an Australian Rock Wallaby on your morning walk, it is pretty clear that the region offers up some of the most exhilarating wildlife watching in the world. It is the synthesis of nature and its extraordinary creatures in action for your daily enjoyment.
