Travel 2 Australia & New Zealand 2018/19

Whitsunday Islands Comprising no fewer than 74 islands, all set on the unique Great Barrier Reef, this beautiful archipelago offers picture-perfect views and endless ways to explore. Choose from sailing, snorkelling or dive trips, or just chill out for a few days and relax at your preferred island resort.

Hayman Island

Hook Island

Daydream Island

Airlie Beach

Whitsunday Island

Shute Harbour

Proserpine

Long Island

Hamilton Island

Our favourite 3 • Hamilton Island is the most popular of the Whitsundays, featuring direct flights to its own airport, a bustling resort centre and marina, and a choice of accommodation to suit all budgets.

• Other alternatives include exclusive Hayman Island, the remote tranquillity of Daydream Island, or the mainland resort of Water’s Edge at Airlie Beach. • Whilst it’s tempting to stay put on a luxurious island retreat, perhaps set aside a few days to cruise the islands or enjoy a hands-on sailing expedition.
