Whitsunday Islands

The Whitsunday Islands are a collection of island gems that make up part of the Great Barrier Reef. The destination is very popular due to its natural beauty and ideal for those who enjoy camping in paradise. With most of the islands being national parks, the land and surrounding waters have been able to retain their beauty. Visitors can reach this destination via a ferry ride from ports near either the airport of Hamilton Island or Proserpine.

Within the Whitsunday Islands is Whitehaven Beach, something of a poster child for Australia tourism with its fine white sand beaches being displayed in brochures and TV advertising. The sand and waters here are extremely clean and perfect for swimming or simply standing on the shores and taking in the exquisite sight. In regards to the islands, Hamilton Island is the most developed and populated. Some of Australia’s most valuable real estate can be found here. While serving as a high-end destination, the island has retained its natural beauty while offering fine restaurants and accommodations. Hayman Island provides a very exclusive destination, Daydream Island serves as an ideal family destination, and Dent Island is mostly uninhabited, but a championship level golf course can be found here.

In the Whitsunday Islands, accommodation ranges from comfortable camping trips to the full 5-star experience in a luxurious property. Be sure to check out the interactive map of Whitsunday Islands for information on hotel locations, attractions, and must-see destinations.
