Found off the east coast of Queensland, the Whitsundays are the largest group of off shore islands in the vicinity of Australia. The archipelago is predominately uninhabited, but this only adds to the natural charm and wonder of this popular charter destination. What's more, with the Great Barrier Reef fringing the waters, there's every reason to include the famous attraction into your itinerary.  

The largest island in the collection, Whitsunday Island, is a holiday destination of its own by hosting the world famous Whitehaven Beach. Stretching 7 kilometres, the super soft white sandy beach gives every other coastline a run for its money. The delicate sand is perfect for beachcombing and makes the idyllic setting for pure relaxation.

After seeing the natural tidal shifts at the Hill Inlet a dive in to the exquisitely shaped Heart Reef makes this one beauty spot you will want to visit time and time again. Continue chartering through the national park protected islands to find your dream private getaway. Feel like an island castaway as you stroll along deserted pristine, untouched beaches and hike through the nature trails. Look up to the sky and watch the rainforests towering above you as the wild, native birds decorate the space above you. Jump into the Coral Sea to discover more incredible wildlife including turtles, dolphins and dugongs.

Wildlife is in full dominance on Long Island. Join the native creatures on the land by hiking through the beautiful overgrowth and witness some of the most spectacular scenery in the area. Enjoy the sights of the flora and fauna while taking the time to enjoy the isolation and seclusion of the rainforest environment as well as the peace and tranquillity that comes with it. Follow the Whitsundays Ngaro Sea Trail to Hook and discover some incredible original aborigine cave shelters.

Enjoy the panoramic views along the nature trails of the picturesque island before once again plunging into the turquoise waters to see the Pinnacles, undoubtedly one of the best dive sites in the Whitsunday Islands.

Rejoin civilisation at one of the several 5 star resorts nestled into sublime backdrops along the silky soft beaches of the Whitsundays. Enjoy exclusive lounges and delicious cuisine before indulging in tempting cocktails made from local and branded spirits and mixers. Complete your 5 star experience by soaking up the atmosphere in one of the highly indulgent spas.
