Charming Whitsundays Attractions And Activities

There’s an abundance of things to do in Whitsundays, so cruise on along. 

This archipelago of 74 tropical islands is just off the coast of Queensland. It earned its misnomer of a name from a very confident Captain Cook; who on traversing the passage, christened it after the Christian holiday Whit Sunday, when in reality, it was Whit Monday. However, the name stuck and it is called the Whitsundays to this day. 

When one writes about the things to do in Whitsundays, it would be criminal to not start off with the world’s largest reef system (which can also be seen from space!) The Great Barrier Reef is without a doubt one of the most popular tourist and yachting destinations for travellers to Queensland. 

One can scuba dive amongst the brilliantly hued fishes and the stunning coral formations (a true diver’s mecca!) or choose to view the reefs from a glass bottomed boat. If the aquatic biodiversity isn’t enough for you, look skywards and don’t forget to carry a pair of binoculars. The multitudinous species of our swift and mischievous avian comrades are a real treat to watch. 

Since the Great Barrier Reef is such a crowd-puller and one of Australia’s most visited spots, the conservation and protection of the reef is of utmost importance. As you cruise Whitsundays, it is imperative to choose an operator who treats the reefs and the marine life, in a humane way and with utmost respect. 

The enchanting Heart Reef is naturally formed and best viewed from a seaplane or helicopter. The aerial view of the picturesque Great Barrier Reef is another level of luxury travel. See before your very eyes, the sights printed on a million picture postcards across Australia. 

Within the heart of the Great Barrier Reef, is a slice of paradise called the Whitehaven Beach. The blinding white sands spread out over a 7 kilometer stretch is touted for being the cleanest beach. The lapping waves of the turquoise waters can invoke, within us, a new sense of calm. Explore the beach with a Whitsundays Island cruise for the best possible vantage point! The sights of the Whitsundays day cruises will linger on in your memories long after you’ve left, leaving you wanting to come back for more. 

In whale-watching season, which starts in June and goes on until September, one can spot several species of whales in Whitsundays. Whitsunday Island whale-watching cruises allow you to spot the majestic leviathans of the deep frolicking within the calm Whitsundays’ waters on their annual migratory journey. 

Welcome to Whitsundays - where the beaches are always calm, the waters are always azure and the weather is always great!
