Paradise really does exist
If you're serious about ticking some top 'must do's' off your bucket list, then the Whitsundays is the place to do it.
The Whitsundays are world famous and rightly so! As far as the eye can see, bush-clad islands are dotted throughout an indigo sea, which is home to an underwater world so colourful and busy with life that you have to see it to believe it. This paradise sits at the heart the Great Barrier Reef midway along the Queensland Coast of Australia. With 70% of the region a protected National and Marine Park, this is a truly unique and stunning destination.
The Whitsunday Islands
Our Awesome packages get you in amongst and onto Hamilton, Daydream Island. These islands we take you to are all part of the Whitsunday Islands National Park. The waters of the Coral Sea surrounding them are part of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, a World Heritage Area.
Stretching over nine kilometres this pristine expanse of pure white silica sand, fringed by brilliant blue water and lush tropical island is one of the jewels of the Whitsundays. Recognised as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, no visit to the Whitsundays is complete without a trip to Whitehaven Beach. A 'Camira Sailing Adventure' ensures an unforgettable visit to this spectacular and famous location while experiencing high-speed sailing through the spectacular islands.
Great Barrier Reef
The Great Barrier Reef is a World Heritage site and is the largest reef in the world, stretching some 2,300kms along the coast of Queensland. It is truly one of the great wonders of the natural world and a 'must-see' for anyone visiting the region. The outer Great Barrier Reef where our pontoon is situated is acclaimed as one of the most pristine sites with an abundance of coral and fish life. You can explore this spectacular spot with our Great Barrier Reef Adventures.
