Located on the East Coast of Australia, the Whitsundays is home to an abundance of white shores, flourishing reefs, glassy waters and lush island forests. Essentially, an ideal playground for content creators looking for some unique, breathtaking shots! Here at Sailing Whitsundays, we work hard to align our collaborations with brands that reflect our love for the adventure and natural beauty found in the Whitsunday Islands.

So, if you’re an influencer, photographer, model, travel blogger or anything in between, with an engaged and substantial following, we want to work with you! Ditch the home office for some time the Whitsundays, where you can soak up the sun's rays and immerse yourself in tropical bliss! For some inspiration, check out some of the wicked content (and downright fun) that has been created during some of our previous Whitsunday collaborations!

We just can’t get enough Matt and his stunning shots and videos! This legend is a content creator, entrepreneur and photographer, who spends just as much time behind the camera as he does in front of it! We’re so stoked to have taken Matt to Fraser Island on a shoot in the thriving forests and swimming spots, as well as on Powerplay to cruise the Whitsunday Islands in style and on a Seaplane Tour over the Great Barrier Reef. We love working with Matt, and look forward to future collaborative adventures!

As a travel lover and capturer of natural moments, it was wondrous to see Cleo experience the Whitsundays. From the pristine shores of Whitehaven to the breathtaking vantage points of Hill Inlet Lookout to the depths of the Great Barrier Reef, we just loved facilitating Cleo’s adventures aboard Powerplay. Not to mention, she starred in some stunning shots of the vibrant coral colonies just below the surface!

Collaborating with Nina was an experience filled with laughter and mindful food for thought! As a travel writer and sustainability advocate from Byron Bay, Nina was visiting the Great Barrier Reef as research for her new book about eco-conscious travelling, Go Lightly. We were so happy to put her on Whitsunday Adventurer, where she could document her experiences in the many untouched corners of natural wonder here in the Whitsundays… without the footprint!
