Whitsunday Islands

Spectacular Island Jewels

Come and discover the Whitsundays - one fabulous destination, 74 tropical islands and countless holiday experiences. Bordered by the magnificent World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef, this unique region needs to be seen: from the air, in and under the water and on land.

The largest of the island resorts and a haven for holiday-makers on all budgets, Hamilton Island is several holiday destinations rolled into one. Visitors here can enjoy more than 40 activities, including numerous and varied water sports, plus a wonderful selection of accommodation, shopping and dining options across the island.

Take in a birds-eye view on board a scenic seaplane or helicopter tour, enjoying unique views of white beaches, fringing dark green islands, that plunge into the turquoise waters of the Coral Sea. Go snorkelling or scuba diving and discover exotic tropical fish and colourful creatures, while exploring delicately detailed coral gardens beneath warm tropical waters.

One of the prettiest islands in the Whitsundays, Long Island is a national park with 13 kilometres of graded walking tracks leading to beautiful secluded beaches and dense bush areas. The island boasts two different resorts on different parts of the island. While combining magnificence with the natural beauty of a tropical paradise, Hayman Island is the perfect setting for weddings, honeymoons and marriage renewals. All rooms on the island offer spectacular views of the Whitsundays or the tropical landscaped gardens. Daydream Island may be only one kilometre long and half a kilometre wide, but it acts much bigger! Indulge in a luxurious spa treatment, then stretch out and watch movies on the beach.
