Picture this - 74 spectacularly beautiful islands ringed with white sand, surrounded by tranquil turquoise ocean.

This region, in Queensland's tropical north, is a haven for water sports, diving, sun-baking, bush-walking and snorkelling.

If that whets your appetite for sailing the Whitsundays, then consider a Palace Adventures' sailing package - we're the east coast adventure specialists.

We're wild about The Whitsundays... you will be too!

How to Get Here

You'll find the Whitsundays located on the Queensland coastline, at the southern end of the Great Barrier Reef, halfway between Brisbane and Cairns on Australia’s east coast.

This pristine area of wilderness is really well serviced by trains, planes, road coaches from major centres and is a great stopover for self drivers on their coastal journey.


The Whitsundays is serviced by two domestic airports - located at Proserpine (Whitsunday Coast Airport) and Hamilton Island (Great Barrier Reef Airport). The region is approximately 1.5hrs north of Brisbane; 2 hours north of Sydney or 3 hours from Melbourne. Qantas and Sunstate Airlines fly daily to Prosperpine. Coach transfers, taxis and hire car services are available at the airport. Virgin Blue and Qantas fly daily to Hamilton Island.


Queensland Rail runs daily north and southbound train services. Sitting and sleeping berths are available. The northbound Sunlander train runs on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturday mornings, arriving in Prosperpine in the late afternoon. Tilt Train services also operate regularly in both directions.


Greyhound has several daily services through Airlie Beach (both north and southbound).


The Bruce Highway stretches from Brisbane to Cairns. The Airlie Beach turnoff is approximately 1km north of the Prosperpine turn-off and is well signed.  It is approximately 20km to the township.
