Welcome

Welcome to the Whitsundays, home to the Ngaro people for at least the past 9,000 years. Many sites throughout the Whitsundays hold special meaning for Ngaro descendents and are a continuing connection to Country. The Ngaro people welcome you to their homeland and hope you enjoy your visit.

Location

Continental islands lying off the Queensland coast 10–40km south-east of Airlie Beach

What's special

Jewel-green islands sparkle in a turquoise ocean. Stunning views, secluded beaches, coral reefs and towering hoop pines complete the picture. All are part of the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area. The Whitsundays also features the Whitsunday Ngaro Sea Trail, a unique blend of seaways and picturesque walks and one of Queensland's 10 Great Walks.
