Tourism in the Whitsundays
Australia is famous world-wide for its beautiful beaches, red centre, amazing wildlife and of course, the Great Barrier Reef. Not only an icon in Australia, the Great Barrier Reef is a natural wonder of the world and is a UNCESO World Heritage site.
Other top tourist destinations in Australia include Sydney, the Blue Mountains, the Great Ocean Road, Uluru, and the Great Barrier Reef, including the Whitsundays and Whitehaven Beach, two of some of the top destinations in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park.
The Whitsundays has much on offer to those wishing to visit Australia and see it for its authentic self. Not only will you have access to some of the best sailing in the world, but also to the most famous reef in the world, the Great Barrier Reef. Snorkelling and scuba diving here is unparalleled, with the Outer Reef and Inner Fringing Reef right at your fingertips. Teeming with diverse and amazing marine life, the coral reefs of the Great Barrier Reef have so much to offer both introductory and experienced divers and snorkellers. Visitors will have the chance to see the reef up close, and can also do a number of other tours in the area including scenic flights, jetskiing, skydiving and fishing.
Also on offer in the Whitsundays is a visit to the famous and stunning Whitehaven Beach, an Australian favourite. Known for being the second most photographed place in the country (second to only the Sydney Opera House), the swirling white sands and cool blue waters certainly make it one of the most interesting, if not the most beautiful in the world. This is a world famous beach and is often listed as one of the best beaches in the world.
You can sail through the Whitsundays for an overnight boat trip to see all the top destinations, or opt to stay in Airlie Beach and partake on a day trip - no matter how you do it, the Whitsundays are worth the visit.
