The Whitsundays | Things to do

You’ll be captivated by these 74 picture-perfect islands, home the iconic Whitehaven Beach, and the impossibly perfect Heart Reef.

Sail the Whitsundays

Be the captain of your own bareboat on a sailing adventure or let someone else do the work with a fully crewed charter. Take a day cruise through the islands or drop anchor in a secluded bay and spend the night on the boat. Rub shoulders with the yachties at the annual Airlie Beach Race Week Festival of Sailing and Audi Hamilton Island Race Week. Show me more Whitsunday events

Islands

Check into a luxury resort or family-friendly apartment on busy Hamilton Island or kayak around the Ngaro Sea Trail and stop off to camp on uninhabited Henning or Hook islands. Zip around the islands by jet boat with Ocean Rafting and swim at stunning Hill Inlet on Whitsunday Island.


Start Exploring

Great Barrier Reef

The Whitsundays sit in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef, so you can snorkel straight from the beach on Hook and Dumbbell islands. Get your scuba-diving certificate in Hamilton Island’s Dolphin Pool or stay dry and see the reef from a glass-bottom boat. Treat yourself to a scenic flight over the magical Heart Reef, a perfectly shaped outcrop on Hardy Reef.

Beaches

It’s consistently named as one of the best beaches in the world, and no visit to the Whitsundays is complete without burying your toes in the powdery sands of Whitehaven Beach. Don’t miss the eight beaches around Bowen, where you can walk right from the sand on to the reef.
