Get in quick to book your adventure!

As the Whitsundays get ready for Christmas, there’s a few things to keep in mind that will help you make your holiday an unforgettable experience for the whole family! One of the most important things to remember is to book early - especially this year. Because we can’t travel overseas or as far and wide as we usually would for the holidays, it’s likely that accommodation will book quickly!

Accommodation options 

There’s an abundance of accommodation options available in Airlie Beach and the surrounding regions - from hotels, to resorts to self-contained apartments, there’s bound to be something perfect for you and your family. Due to its small size and focus on local life, one of the best ways to stay in Airlie Beach is to stay at a locally owned and operated AirBNB or Bed and Breakfast. There’s a multitude to choose from, so start scouting now!

The best tours go quickly! 

Another important thing to remember is that tours are also a hot commodity during the silly season, and all of the best ones are sold out first! The most sought after overnight trips are bound to sell out quickly, especially catamarans, trips with private cabins and vessels with low passenger numbers. But never fear - regardless of what is sold out, there’s always an adventure to be had on the Whitsundays. Make sure you ask your travel expert about what options are available for you and your family! Regardless of your tour, you’ll get to enjoy a relaxing and fun adventure, soaking up the beauty of the Whitsundays and Whitehaven Beach.
