The Whitsundays - or Whitsunday Islands - form a large archipelago that consists of 74 islands that are part of the state of Queensland.
The Whitsundays is located in the northeast of Australia, which means travellers will experience a tropical climate. It never gets cold here, and the annual average temperature is roughly 20 degrees. The warmest period is from November to March.
The Whitsundays are your typical postcard islands: white-sand beaches, the lush vegetation, and the translucent water of the Coral Sea are what backpackers’ dreams are made of.
From Airlie Beach, you can also book for the Whitsundays Adventure, during which you can grab the chance to go paddle-boarding or snorkel your way through the dazzling world under the sea surface.
Take an overnight cruise to truly experience the Whitsundays and the fabled Great Barrier Reef. This marine journey allows you to indulge in a hardcore Australian experience: cruise past sun-soaked islands, sleep under the stars and enjoy Aussie-style barbecues. This one is for the books!
Kayaking in Whitsundays is the most popular thing to do. Paddle over the crystal clear water of the Coral Sea from Airlie Beach and have a chance to bump into aquatic animals such as sea turtles.
Whitsundays most famous beach is, without a doubt, Whitehaven Beach. The water here has a surrealistic clarity, and the area around it has several spectacular sandbars. One of the ways to see this waterfront with your own eyes is via the Thundercat tour. On this must-do trip, you’ll ride a fast catamaran through the archipelago and even stop by two amazing snorkel spots!
Essentially, there are endless ways to roam around the Whitsundays. You can check out this exotic group of atolls from the sky, the water, or even underwater.
