About The Whitsundays

The Whitsundays is in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef, stretching from Proserpine in the south to Bowen in the north; west to Collinsville and east to Airlie Beach and the Whitsunday islands, an archipelago of 74 green islands and sandy atolls surrounded by tropical blue waters.

The soft, white sands of Whitehaven Beach, the crystal clear waters and the spectacular corals make the Whitsundays an attractive destination for every visitor.
