Get to know the Whitsundays
Explore more than 70 islands in the Whitsunday Islands archipelago, just inside the Great Barrier Reef off the Queensland. The Coral Sea is calm, protected by the reef, and reflects vivid shades of turquoise. The brilliant visibility means you’ll have a wonderful time swimming and snorkeling the coral alongside tropical fish, turtles, dolphins, whales and manta rays.
You’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to your itinerary with plenty of anchorages and lush islands to choose from. Sail the trade winds between May and August and enjoy summer’s hot and humid temperatures with short rain showers, or winter’s warm days and cooler nights.

- Hamilton Island: The largest island and where you can grab provisions from wonderful speciality shops. Play golf, snorkel the reefs or dine at one of the many restaurants ashore. You’ll find plenty of beaches, including Catseye Bay, Crab Bay and Driftwood Bay
- Hayman Island: Expect to find sandy coves with sheer rock faces and glittering seas on this resort island
- South Molle Island: Walk through rainforest or over the causeway to Mid Molle Island when the tide is low
