Explore the 74 Islands of The Whitsundays

Located in the heart of The Great Barrier Reef on the Queensland coast, lies the 74 Islands.
The majority of these islands are uninhabited national park islands, with only a select few having resorts on them. All of them are surrounded by the fringing coral gardens of The Great Barrier reef. Ready to be explored by divers and snorkelers alike. Swim amongst ancient underwater formations and along brightly coloured coral walls.

Spectacular landscapes, rising mountain ranges, beautiful sunsets and sunrises. Experience relaxation and adventure at its very best! Beautiful one day, Perfect the next!

Witness incredible marine life which calls the fringing reefs their home! Come face to face to friendly maori wrasse and up close and personal with a turtle! Maybe even find Nemo!

During the months of July to October have the chance to see the majestic humpback whales!
Visiting our warm waters to birth their calves, they are always a sight to see. One you won’t soon forget.
