Discover Airlie Beach

Base yourself at the picturesque central town of Airlie Beach, and then visit the beautiful Whitsundays. An archipelago of 74 beautiful islands sitting just off the coast of Queensland, the islands the islands today are tropical paradises unmatched anywhere in the world.

Isn't it time you discovered the Whitsundays?

What are the must-see attractions in the Whitsundays?

There are enough must-see attractions in the Whitsundays to last a lifetime, however here's a few main Whitsunday attractions to get you started on your journey.

As the logical starting point for many excursions further afield in the Whitsunday Islands, Hamilton Island is seen by many as simply a launch pad for the wider Whitsunday experience rather than a destination in itself. This, however, could not be further from the truth, as Hamilton Island has more than enough activities and things to see to keep you coming back, year after year.

As well as a wide variety of water-based activities, quad biking and a bowling alley, visit Hamilton Island Wildlife to marvel at some of Australia's most loved animals, or escape to the bush and enjoy over 20 km of walking tracks.

Fancy a game of golf? Then catch a boat across the channel to neighbouring Dent Island and play on one of Australia's finest 18 hole championship golf courses.

Given the inescapable fact that the Whitsundays are a chain of islands, it would be fair to say that many of the region's activities revolve around the water. One of the world's top destinations for sailors, you can also indulge in stand up paddleboarding, snorkelling, sports fishing, parasailing and diving to name just a few of the available activities. Squeak your toes in the remarkably white sand of Whitehaven Beach, dive the living reef with a marine biologist on Daydream Island or marvel at the Indigenous rock art at the Ngara Cultural Site in Nara Inlet on Hook Island.

You can also choose from a variety of air and sea tours to visit the less accessible islands, go fishing or simply relax on the beach and revel in being in one of the planet's most beautiful locations.

However the fun doesn't need to stop there. Explore the mainland sections of the Whitsundays with a walk along Airlie Beach or strap on the hiking boots for a three day bushwalk on the Conway Circuit through Conway National Park.

There's so much more to see and do in the Whitsundays, so book your Whitsundays Holiday Package today.
