Holiday In Paradise In The Whitsunday Islands

sailing boats in the whitsunday islands

With 74 islands off the Queensland coast, the Whitsundays are a priority on an East Coast trip of Australia. While you won’t be able to visit them all, there are some mesmerising experiences to be had that will make you feel like a star holidaying in paradise with your friends.
Just imagine sailing on a pristine catamaran, lounging on the large deck and snorkelling in the
bluest of blue waters to meet tropical fish, turtles and other marine life going about their business in the Great Barrier Reef. Spend a whole day hopping from one island to another, lazing on beautiful beaches and soaking up that Australian sun.
The idea of island hopping, snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef and sailing on a catamaran may
seem out of reach and budget, but it’s totally accessible and affordable thanks to Awesome Whitsundays. Making it easier than ever to explore the Whitsunday Islands, you can spend up to five whole days in this stunning area, so that what once felt like a distant dream, is very much a reality.

Granted, you’ll probably still pinch yourself at every breath-taking moment; when you first step foot onto the purple Camira catamaran, when you spot a turtle for the first time, and when you feel that glorious heat from the sun as you bathe on the silica white sand of Whitehaven Beach.
With packages ranging from three to five days, there’s enough time to enjoy the Whitsundays whichever you choose, but the ultimate package is Castaway; five days including one day in Airlie Beach, one day island hopping to Hamilton Island and Daydream Island, one day sailing to Whitehaven Beach, and two days in the Great Barrier Reef, with the option to take a scenic flight over Heart Reef (at own expense). On your final night, you get to sleep under the stars in an Australian swag, on Reefworld, a permanent pontoon in the outer Great Barrier Reef. You’ll see a stunning sunset in the middle of the ocean as well as a chance to explore the underwater world during the day and night (if you’re up for it as there is a small extra cost). From $799 per person with a range of accommodation options to suit everyone – this package offers more than you ever thought you could get in the Whitsundays.
