Here’s a tip: the best Whitsunday Islands holidays involve boats. Catch your dinner on a deep-sea fishing expedition. Sail through the nooks and crannies of Hook Island. Charter a boat out to the Great Barrier Reef (did we mention it’s right there ?) and get your snorkel on. Or just grab the nearest catamaran and take your lagoon-side lounging session right out into the lagoon.
If you’re more of a land-lubber, no worries. Find yourself a jungle or mountain to trek through (just stick a pin in one of those green spots on the map). Exhausted just thinking about it? Then relax and enjoy a resort-style cocktail instead. Whatever filets your fish.
Is it time to flip over yet? If you’re feeling a little well-done yourself, it might be time to head indoors to see what else is cooking. The local resorts all have some great meal options, and many of the hotels included in our Whitsunday Island packages offer cooking facilities so you can whip up a meal with your own catch of the day. Then there are the epic sunset dinner cruises. A meal with a view? Yes please.
Most of the islands are uninhabited, making them an outdoor playground full of pristine coastline and hidden treasures. Check out the national park lands that cover almost all of Hook Island. And then there’s that iconic, 4.5km of Whitehaven Beach. You’ll see a lot of beautiful shoreline when you book one of our holidays to the Whitsunday Islands, but some say Whitehaven is the prettiest.
If you’re visiting one of the islands with roads (like Hamilton Island), check out our Whitsunday Islands car rental options. You’ll be able to go cruising without ever leaving the shore. Then there’s Hamilton Island Golf Club on Dent Island (don’t ask), where you can perfect your swing amid tropical breezes at sunrise.
