Spoil your mum and do something special to celebrate her this year! Here are a few ideas for things to do in the Whitsundays to celebrate your mum and everything she does for your family. If you are looking for a unique way to celebrate this year then choose an experience, make a memory, and do something that she will love and always remember! Make the most of your time in the Whitsundays and let her know how much you appreciate her.

Mother's Day in the Whitsundays

1. Charter a Private Yacht

We offer several options for renting a private charter to explore the Whitsunday Islands, and a private charter offers genuine family time away from everyday distraction. This is a great way to celebrate mum and even give her some alone time if you want to drop her off on a stunning beach with a picnic and a bottle of wine! Otherwise, make the most of your time on a beautiful yacht and make breakfast for mum as she sips a coffee and watches the sunrise on the bow of the boat.

2. Day trip on Whitsundays Bullet

Bullet is a family-friendly catamaran that is both fast and stable that's perfect for those who are limited on time but want to see and do it all! Make the most of your time around the Whitsunday Islands and snorkel, go to North and South Whitehaven Beach, Hill Inlet Lookout and paddle board or go for a short bush walk on Whitsunday Island.

5. CW: Reefsuites

If visiting the outer Great Barrier Reef for the day doesn't seem like enough, why not sleep there overnight? Cruise Whitsundays' latest Reef Suites are a first on the Great Barrier Reef, as they offer the once in a lifetime chance to sleep underwater in one of two of their state of the art suites! If you are a family of 4 this is perfect, as they can split the bed into two singles. Looking for a more rugged experience under the stars? Try their newly upgraded glamping option!
