Your host will lead you on a guided bushwalk up Whitsunday Island to the magic swirling sands of Hill Inlet. As the sands are ever-changing, your photos at the top of the lookout will truly be one-of-a-kind.
The Whitsunday Islands are an important part of the Great Barrier Reef and its vast and diverse ecosystem. The fringing reefs of the islands are a snorkeller's paradise, where you will find amazing marine life, nestled away in calm coves and protected bays.
Sailing on Whitsunday Getaway provides a calming and comfortable experience. Feel free to help the crew hoist the sails, or simply sit back and enjoy the ride.
Paddleboards allow for a great view of the surrounding area, and are a fun way to explore the reef and coastline! From above the water, you will get to enjoy the reef in a new way as you quietly make your way around while fish and other marine life swim below.
