Your gaze crosses the majesty of the Whitsunday passage, an ancient mountain range flooded by the oceans rise over millions of years. a glass of French bubbles in one hand, the other around a loved one, as your feet dangle off the swim platform idly kicking in the tropical water... a day’s end in the magical waters of australia’s Whitsunday islands. The Whitsundays lies midway along australia’s Queensland coast, bordered by the great Barrier reef and cradled by the calm waters of the Coral sea, and over recent decades the area has attracted hundreds of superyachts. The region spans from the beautiful beaches of Bowen in the north to the cane fields and sugar mills of inland Proserpine to the gorgeous golf greens of Laguna Whitsundays in the south. of the 74 islands in the Whitsundays, only eight are inhabited, the most famous two being luxury resorts on Hamilton island and Hayman island, surrounded by one of the world’s seven natural wonders, The great Barrier reef. These islands form the largest offshore island chain on australia’s coastline and with ten resorts on the eight islands there are plenty of man-made attractions (restaurants, cocktail bars, resort pools) to explore in your yacht, quite apart from the obvious natural attractions of the beautiful beaches and inlets, mountainous offshore islands and coral reefs.
