Whitsundays Tours More information
The Whitsunday Islands are located in the state of Queensland, Australia. They are an extremely popular holiday destination for both Australians and international visitors, and it’s not hard to see why: stunning soft sandy beaches, clear blue water, amazing views and a great range of accommodation for all budgets.
As the Whitsundays are made up of more than 70 individual islands, it can be difficult deciding which to visit. Here we take a look at some of the most popular options.
Home to the incredible Whitehaven Beach, which is considered by many to be one of the best beaches in the world. With six kilometres of soft, white silica sand that have to be seen to be believed, Whitehaven Beach is popular as a location for many couple’s wedding ceremonies.
Although Hamilton Island is the most developed of the Whitsunday Islands it remains an incredibly beautiful place to visit with an excellent choice of accommodation, plenty of places to explore and lots of activities to enjoy. It is easily reached by ferry from the mainland, and also has it’s own airport.
Another idyllic slice of paradise, Hayman Island really has it all. Well, all except low budget accommodation: the only resort is the luxurious award-winning Hayman, one of the world’s most prestigious resorts and not for anyone on a budget.
Although Airlie Beach is on the mainland, it provides a great base for exploring the Whitsundays and also has a reputation for it’s lively nightlife. Many choose to stay in Airlie Beach as much cheaper accommodation can be found here than on the island’s resorts, and there are plenty of options for exploring the Whitsunday Islands by ferry and boat tour.
