The hilly islands of Whitsunday Islands National Park dot the aquamarine waters of the scenic Whitsunday Passage. Whitehaven Beach on Whitsunday Island is world-renowned for its pure white silica sand and crystal-clear water. Part of the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area, the reefs contain an outstanding variety of corals.

From May to September, the Whitsundays are an important calving ground for migrating humpback whales, keep an eye out and you may be rewarded. For great views, take a walk along various sections of the Whitsunday Ngaro Sea Trail. At Nara Inlet, Hook Island; admire precious rock art by the Ngaro people. Snorkel, sail, or relax in an idyllic setting. Camping is permitted on Whitsunday, Hook, Cid and Henning islands but campers must be self-sufficient. Camping fees apply and bookings are essential.
