Whitsundays - Queensland

The breathtaking Whitsundays region has to be seen to be believed especially if you bear in mind that it has been known to be described as "heaven on earth". With 74 islands sprinkling the serene tropical waters like diamonds, it is incredible that holiday makers go home after their stay, well some don't. Families, couples, friends unite for fun, romance and frolicking with tonnes of marine activities, secluded candlelit dinners and funky nightlife.

The sheltered waters of the Great Barrier Reef offers perfect conditions for sailing, whether you decide on a day trip or assemble the crew for a nautical adventure and sleep under a blanket of stars. Dive into the exhilarating waters and meet the fabulous creatures that inhabit this dynamic wonder of the world. Treat that special someone to an indulgent scenic flight, landing on a deserted beach for a gourmet picnic. Splendid isolation doesn't get much better than this.

Dig your toes into the pure white sands of Whitehaven Beach on the largest and most spectacular of all the islands, Whitsunday Island. Most of the islands are uninhabited and protected from being developed as part of the Marine National Park. There are seven resort islands to be tempted by with some seriously fantastic restaurants, accommodation and entertainment.

There is a treasure trove of good times to be discovered by everyone as these magical islands flaunt themselves in the tropical sun and then when the gold starts to set........well you'll just have to go and find out for yourself.
