The Whitsunday Islands
Just 150 kilometres north of Mackay lies the spectacular Whitsundays in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef. Base yourself at one of the renowned island resorts such as Hamilton Island or Daydream Island, and spend your days exploring by boat. Most of the 74 stunning tropical islands that make up The Whitsundays are uninhabited.
For land-lovers, explore the hillside national park trails at Hydeaway Bay, the ecologically diverse Eungella National Park or the coastal town of Airlie Beach.More about visitng the WhitsundaysOpens external site in a new window
