The Whitsundays holidays

The Whitsundays encompass 74 islands off the coast of Queensland, Australia, in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef. Featuring stunning natural landscapes, secluded beaches and friendly towns, each island offers something different. Whitehaven Beach is one of the Whitsundays premier natural attractions, with 7km of white sand and crystal-clear waters. Protected and uninhabited due to its national and marine park status, its shallows are sometimes visited by various species of turtle.
