Whitsunday Islands, The Whitsundays, Queensland, Australia

Whitsunday Islands

Welcome to the heart of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef – littered with 74 islands including globally-known Hamilton, Hayman and Daydream Islands.

Spoilt for choice

  • Step onto the soft silica sand of Whitehaven Beach or spoil your loved one with a romantic aerial tour of Heart Reef.  
  • Hike the many bush trails for 360-degree panoramic views, or traverse the Ngaro Sea Trail. 
  • Swim, snorkel and dive on the fringing reef surrounding the islands or take a day trip to the outer Great Barrier Reef.

Save & splurge

  • Opt for an impressive bathtub with a view or camp overnight on a reef pontoon. 
  • Sip cocktails from the comfort of your deck chair as you sail your own private charter yacht or grab a kayak and start paddling.

Access to the islands is by boat or ferry from Airlie Beach, Shute Harbour or Hamilton Island marina.
