A world away from Australia’s arid outback lies a string of idyllic tropical islands, teeming with life and boasting some of the world’s most spectacular natural landscapes. These are the Whitsundays—a chain of 74 islands off the Queensland Coast and now home to our Australian* base.
For those wishing to leave the rat race behind, the Whitsunday Islands are the ideal South Pacific paradise to charter yachts in Australia. Home to the famous Whitehaven Beach, this lush, green paradise island offers fantastic views across the South Pacific, where pods of migratory whales can sometimes be spotted making their way along the East Coast of Australia.
The vast expanse of the Great Barrier Reef runs along the length of Queensland’s coastline and makes up the fringing reef of the iconic Whitsunday Islands. Snorkel and dive in this subaqueous landscape, renowned as one of the seven natural wonders of the world, and explore the pristine beaches, secluded coves, and exhilarating bush walks of these fabulous islands.
