5 incredible ways to celebrate Easter in the Whitsundays
As Australians look for ways to celebrate Easter this year, it’s well worth considering travelling to the gorgeous Whitsundays! Filled to the brim with crystal-clear water, empty beaches and delicious food, there’s no better family-friendly destination than the Whitsundays. Here are 5 wonderful ways to celebrate Easter on the beautiful turquoise coast!
Hire a private charter
For an exclusive and exciting family adventure, you’ll absolutely love taking a private charter for a spin around the Whitsundays. Whether your family loves to snorkel to their heart’s content, laze about on the pristine beaches or learn to sail, there’s something for everyone! The best part about hiring a private charter is that the Whitsundays is your oyster - choose your own adventure, create your own itinerary and unwind in your own style! Hop on board a whimsical family adventure on Powerplay, explore the cool blue seas with Whitsunday Getaway or round up a group of your best mates and take them on Atlantic Clipper! No matter which private charter you choose, you’re going to have the time of your life.
Jump on board a day or overnight boat trip
It’s the ultimate way to spend Easter Sunday: lazing about on the white pristine sands of Whitehaven Beach. Does this sound like your kind of holiday? Grab the kids, your friends or your partner (or all of the above) and organise a sea adventure for the day! Regardless of whether you want to scuba dive, explore hidden coves or play beach games all day, there’s a perfect day charter waiting for you.
Feeling even more adventurous? Why not embark on an incredible overnight adventure? Not only will you get to spend more time soaking up the beautiful surroundings of the Whitsundays, but you’ll also get to try out your sea legs and completely unwind listening to the lull of the serene sea. With an overnight tour, you’re able to jam-pack your adventure with more fun-filled activities including sailing, scuba diving and sightseeing even more hidden gems! Some of our favourite overnight adventures include Solway Lass, New Horizon and On Ice.
Wine and dine
Exhausted after a wonderful sea adventure but not ready to let the fun stop there? Why not head to one of the many incredible restaurant spots in Airlie Beach to soak up a beautiful sunset? There’s Sorrento’s, Clipper Restaurant, Anchor Bar, Hemingway’s and Fish D’Vine. Whether you’re looking for an aged glass of Pinot Noir or a refreshing rum spritzer, there’s delicious fare dotted everywhere!
Explore Hamilton Island
If you’d rather spend the Easter long weekend lazing about on one of the world’s most pristine islands, we’re with you! Why not book a whole weekend on Hamilton Island and soak up the beauty and relaxation of it all? With great deals on the return ferry, there’s no better place to be than here. Hire a golf buggy and cruise around the island, relax in one of the pools with a cocktail in hand, fine dine at some of the most scrumptious restaurants in the Whitsundays and snorkel on the fringing reefs! Opt to stay at Hamilton Island Reef View Resort or nab a nifty Cruise Whitsundays Island Hopper Pass!
