Whitsundays Bucket List
Fly over Heart Reef
The only way to see this amazing reef is with an incredible scenic flight! Along
the way, fly over Shute Harbour, Hamilton Island, Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet,
before soaring over the Great Barrier Reef and the Heart!
Skydive the Whitsunday Islands
For the adrenalin junkies as well as those who want a thrill of a lifetime, you
cannot go passed skydive Airlie Beach! From 14,000 ft you will have an amazing
view of the glorious Whitsunday Islands and aqua blue waters!
Take a selfie at Hill Inlet Lookout
This world famous lookout on Whitsunday Islands, provides a breathtaking view
of Whitehaven Beach’s silica sands below! Just a short bushwalk from the beach,
Hill Inlet Lookout has to the be one of best photo opportunities!
Help sail a maxi yacht
An overnight sailing trip on a maxi yacht is the ultimate way to travel around the
Whitsunday islands and you can help hoist the sails and grind the winches.
Maxi yachts are world famous for their incredible racing history, and offer a
once-in-a-lifetime sailing experience!
Snorkel with a sea turtle
Not only will you have the chance to snorkel over the fringing reefs of the
Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, but you may also have the opportunity to spot
some of the local resident marine creatures, including friendly green sea turtles!
Soak your feet into Whitehaven Beach
The most famous beach of them all is certainly on the bucket list. Most day and
overnight trips have Whitehaven Beach on their itinerary as a worldwide
attraction with its pure silica sand which stretches 7 kilometres!
Scuba dive the Great Barrier Reef
The only way to truly appreciate this world wonder is scuba diving among the
exotic marine life and coral species. The Great Barrier Reef, and particularly
Hardy and Bait Reef, attract divers from around the world for its lively fish species
and colourful corals, and you can experience your first scuba dive in the Whitsundays!
Have a drink in Airlie Beach
With its lively, ‘village-like’ atmosphere, Airlie Beach is the central hub of the
Whitsundays. Airlie Beach is home to a huge number of pubs and clubs, restaurants,
retail outlets and accommodation places so there really is something for everyone!
The small town also has plenty of things to see and do including weekend markets and
its huge lagoon in the main street!
