Welcome to The Whitsundays - one of nature's most remarkable gifts, blessed with the breathtaking beauty of the Great Barrier Reef along with literally hundreds of tropical islands and some of the world's most beautiful golden beaches.

Magical holiday location

This tropical sub-rainforest region is around 1,125 kilometres north of Brisbane, or 650 kilometres south of Cairns.

The Cumberland and Northumberland Island groups, commonly called the Whitsunday Islands, form the largest offshore island chain on Australia's east coast and provide a magical holiday escape with something for everyone.

Water activities

You can skipper your own vessel, go sailing for the day, water ski, snorkel and scuba dive at one of the most widely recognised dive destinations in Australia or fish for coral trout or the legendary black marlin.

On land action

Away from the ocean, you can explore the local rainforests, go horse riding, be pampered in a luxury resort or party the night away in Airlie Beach.

The choice is yours - limited only by your imagination.
