The islands sit in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef, one of the seven wonders of the natural world and the only living thing visible from outer space. Home to an abundance of extraordinary marine life, the Great Barrier Reef is made up of over 3,000 reef systems and coral cays.
You can sail the reef, dive it, snorkel it or even take a plane and fly over it. However you choose to explore the Whitsundays and the Great Barrier Reef, Port of Airlie is the perfect place from which to start your adventure.
The Whitsundays is an internationally renowned sailing hotspot, an archipelago of 74 tropical islands set among turquoise waters and tropical rainforest. Swim with turtles and dolphins, spot whales and sink your feet into the purest and whitest of sands.
