Whitsunday Islands (Australia)

Whitsunday Islands Travel Guide and Trip Resources


Dream islands

The Whitsunday islands are an archipelago of islands off Australia's Queensland
One of the most popular destinations in the country, featuring 74 (or more) islands
Lots of activities, fantastic scenery and beaches

After seeing these islands I've given up on ever finding a better and more perfect tropical dream island. Try it, I dare you.

The Whitsunday Islands are located off Australia's Queensland, south of Bowen and north of Mackay. They encompass a total of 74 islands (there are more if you count some of the really small specks as well) featuring bright white sand and the fantastic transparent aquamarine waters that one dreams of when planning a getaway to destinations like these.

Hamilton Island is the most developed and crowded, while Hayman Island, DayDream Island and Long Island are other popular and in some cases (like Hayman) more exclusive options. Whitehaven Beach on Whitsunday Island itself is your typical must-see. Getting in is easiest through either the airport of Hamilton Island or Proserpine. [Review by travelindicator]
