Whitsunday Trips for the middle-aged traveller
For those not who have not quite made it over the hill but are still way passed their partying and drinking ways of yesteryear, choosing the right sailing trip in the Whitsundays can be tricky.
We are of course referring to those aged late 20s to 40s, whether you have a partner, in a group or travelling solo, there are a handful of overnight trips which are more your style rather than loud, party boats, the budget-backpacker options or the romantic-honeymoon style.
