The Whitsundays are made up of 74 tropical islands rising from warm turquoise waters, an abundance of incredible marine and wildlife and a vibrant coastline full of excitement. The stunning Whitsunday Islands, most of them in pristine National Parks, offer white-sand beaches, stunning views and sheltered tropical rich blue waters. The islands are bordered by the majestic mountains of the Conway National Park on one side, the famous Great Barrier Reef on the other and surrounded by the calm waters of the Coral Sea. With beautiful turquoise waters, sheltered bays, sandy beaches, coral reefs, beautiful year-round tropical weather and spectacular scenery, the Whitsundays ensures an incredible holiday experience.
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.
Lying at the heart of the Whitsundays, vibrant Airlie Beach is a backpacking mecca, party town and the gateway to the Whitsunday Islands and the Great Barrier Reef. Airlie Beach is located about 1,100 km north of Brisbane and about 700 km south of Cairns and is the major accommodation and eating destination for travellers planning to take trips out to the stunning Islands. A colourful and inviting resort town lying on the shores of a palm fringed beach and overlooking the calm waters of Pioneer Bay, Airlie beach provides many of the essential services for travellers to the area. The centre of the Airlie Beach township is a myriad of shops, eating places ranging from fast foods to quality restaurants, accommodation options, pubs and bars and cosmopolitan nightlife with many clubs providing entertainment well in to the small hours. Airlie Beach provides an always lively scene with all the other international travellers in town.
By day there are lots of shops and boutiques for some retail therapy, open seven days a week. And every Saturday the foreshore parkland hosts a market with stalls selling fresh fruit and veggies, local arts and crafts and more. Located only a few metres from the beach the shopping centre has a holiday feel and the whole township, a distinctly tropical flavour.
Airlie Beach Lagoon in the centre of town is a welcome oasis. An amazing foreshore parkland surrounding a series of inter-linked lagoon pools, it is the perfect place to chill, cool off and relax with a swim.
