The Whitsundays

The Whitsundays comprise of 74 Islands in the Heart of the Great Barrier Reef spread majestically through the Coral Sea, the sandy fringes of these 74 islands disappear into beautiful shades of crystal, aqua, blue and indigo ocean, sheltered by the the World Heritage listed Great Barrier Reef, which is one of the seven natural wonders of the world. Home to tens of thousands of species of brilliantly coloured fish, coral and other marine life, approximately 900 kilometres (560 miles) north of Brisbane. The northernmost of the islands are situated off the coast by the town of Bowen while the southernmost islands are off the coast by Mackay.
The traditional owners of the area are the Ngaro People and the Gia People (Birri Gubba language group) whose Juru Clan has the only legally recognised native title in the region. Whitehaven Beach stands out for its pure white silica sand. It is undoubtedly the finest beach in the Whitsundays, and many claim, in the world. Airlie Beach, on the mainland, is the coastal hub and major gateway to the islands. Most of the Whitsunday Islands are uninhabited, and several offer beach camping and bush walking. Most organised tours and activities on the Whitsundays are based in Airlie Beach, although many of these same tours can be booked from individual islands.
