Out Of The Blue…
The Whitsundays is described as the greatest aquatic playground on earth with easy access to the Great Barrier Reef and nearby islands. Sailing on a range of yachts, tackling a giant black marlin on a game fishing charter, or just kicking back on a deserted beach doing nothing at all, the Whitsundays, offer a holiday clearly unlike anything else in Australia and perhaps unique in the entire world.
For those looking for less water-based fun try exploring the region via a scenic helicopter Or light plane flight, have a game of golf at Australia’s Number One rated Resort golf course, explore virgin rainforest or go horse riding. The Whitsundays has as much or as little to do as you wish, in your perfect holiday destination.
