Queensland -
An island to suit every taste.

Holidays in the Pacific are all about the beach. We love to swim, snorkel, sail and surf, or sunbathe. So when you tell the kids you’re going to fly on a floatplane or take a boat to a beach with lots of really white sand, they may well mutter, “Whatever.” But when they see Whitehaven Beach in the Whitsunday Islands they will marvel at its pure, white sand. It feels like talcum powder, as it’s made of silica, not coral or shell. Even better, the area behind the beach is untouched. Climb up to the Hill Inlet lookout to view the swirling patterns of sand and turquoise water and the surrounding islands.
