Whitsunday Escape

Duration
4 Days
Prices From:
US$ 365

Indulge in the Whitsundays mainland, a vibrant village with thriving community markets. Enjoy a helicopter ride to a deserted beach or explore the rainforest, the choice is yours.


The ideal Whitsundays retreat for those who prefer to base themselves on dry land, this 4 day itinerary takes in Airlie Beach, Hamilton Island and spectacular Whitehaven Beach.

A highlight of the Cairns region, Airlie Beach is the perfect jump-off point for any number of day trips and cruises available throughout the Whitsundays. On a free day, go snorkeling or diving to meet the 1200 plus varieties of tropical fish that call the reef home, or pay them a visit from the comfort of a glass bottom boat. The following day is spent sailing the Whitsundays, including Hamilton Island and one of the world’s most spectacular beaches, Whitehaven.
