Welcome to Destination Paradise - the islands, the waterways and the coast - there are so many holiday temptations in the Whitsundays. You can skipper your own vessel, go sailing for the day, snorkel and scuba dive at one of the most widely recognised dive destinations in Australia, fish for Coral Trout or the legendary Black Marlin, water ski, explore rainforests, go horse riding, be pampered in a luxury resort or party the night away in Airlie Beach.
The choice is yours - limited only by your imagination. This tropical sub-rainforest region is around 1,125 kilometres north of Brisbane, or 650 kilometres south of Cairns. The Cumberland and Northumberland Island groups, commonly called the Whitsunday Islands, form the largest offshore island chain on Australia’s east coast and provide a magical holiday escape with something for everyone.
