72 Islands of Wonder—that’s the slogan for the incredible Whitsundays region. Only an hour-and-a-half flight from Brisbane and 2-and-a-bit from Sydney, you could spend week exploring pristine beaches and waterfalls, sailing the waters or taking to the skies for a bird’s-eye view of it all.
There are several airports to reach this pristine region, including the Bowen Airport, Whitsunday Airport Australia, the Whitsunday Coast Airport and the Hamilton Island Airport. Of course, you may choose to come by boat, where you have you pick of many marinas with incredible views.
Once you’re settled into your hotel, motel, resort, holiday park or other accommodation in Airlie Beach, Bowen, Hydeaway Bay, Hayman Island, Hamilton Island, Proserpine or other hot spots, it’s time to check out the region. Your first stop should be the Big Mango in Bowen. Like anywhere in the Whitsundays, beaches in Bowen are like none you’ll see anywhere else in the world.
Speaking of beaches, Whitehaven Beach is an award-winning beach, not just by Australian standards, but around the world. The stunning white sands span for 7km, and can be accessed by boat, seaplane or helicopter. You won’t find shopping or tourist attractions, but the snorkelling, air views and pristine coastline makes it well worth the trip alone.
Hamilton Island and the surrounding Whitsundays are some of the most popular wedding locations in the state, maybe even Australia. The beaches, resorts and breath-taking landscape make for the perfect ceremony or reception backdrop, while bride and groom enjoy their first moments and husband and wife.
What’s the weather like in the Whitsundays? As you’d expect from a tropical paradise, the summers are hot, the winters are warm, and the remaining spring and autumn are just as amazing. If you’re visiting in January to March, expect some tropical showers or storms, but you’re looking at 25 degree water on average almost all year round.
