6 Day Whitsundays & Beyond

  • Island hop the Whitsundays on a full day cruise
  • Seek out waterfalls, saltwater crocodiles & more
Includes tours, airport transfers & resort accom.

The Whitsundays is well known for its spectacular offshore islands and crystal clear waters. But what else is there? Beyond the blinding white beaches and dreamy yacht cruises, a wonderland of wetlands and waterbirds, snaking rivers and saltwater crocodiles is just waiting to be discovered. This six day tour and sailing package will showcase both sides of this internationally renowned destination.

Base yourself in tropical Airlie Beach, gateway to the Whitsundays, with five nights in either standard or premium 4-star accommodation (depending on your option chosen). Soak up the relaxed vibe of the town at leisure, and then venture inland for a full day crocodile safari. Keep your eyes peeled for these prehistoric creatures as you cruise along the Proserpine River, and spot local waterbirds in the Goorganga Plains. Continue the adventure with a full day cruise among the emerald islands of the Whitsundays, stopping to explore serene Whitehaven Beach, snorkel amidst a rainbow of marine life, and take in the stunning view from Hill Inlet Lookout. Then, it’s time to get wild on a day tour to Cedar Creek Falls and Hydeaway Bay. You’ll also get to learn about the fascinating history and indigenous culture of the region. Return airport transfers, tour guides, and selected meals also included.

Departs daily until 31st May 2022. Child discounts available on request. See Important Info for details.

Afterwards, you will make your way down to the shifting sands of Hill Inlet, enjoy a swim in the clear waters of the most famous beach in Australia!

The Reef & Island scenic flight with GSL Aviation, is the most comprehensive tour in the Whitsundays. Departing from Whitsunday Coast Airport, the Reef & Island tour includes views of Conway National Park, mainland river systems, Airlie Beach, Whitsunday Islands, and The Great Barrier Reef.

Beyond the Whitsunday Islands, is the Great Barrier Reef, one of the seven natural wonders of the world. The unique colours and patterns of the reef are best appreciated from the air, including the iconic Heart Reef, which is only visible from the air, and only in the Whitsundays.

Optional Activity: Sundowner Sunset Cruise - $65 per Adult, $45 per child (14 years and younger)
Sundowner is a fully covered, purpose-built catamaran designed for socialising. Unlike a yacht, it has a flat surface and no trip hazards. There is ample room to move, and high heels are welcome. The Airlie Beach sunset cruise departs Tuesday to Sunday evenings and circumnavigates Pioneer Bay. As there is very little draft, the catamaran is able to get up close and personal to many points of interest along the Airlie Beach coastline with the chance to enjoy a bit of turtle spotting in Turtle Bay.

Sundowner provides fantastic service in a friendly social atmosphere so you can truly unwind and bask in a fantastic Whitsunday sunset whilst enjoying your favourite tipple from our fully licensed bar. Once the sun sets, enjoy the lights of Airlie Beach from the water before heading back to port.

Airlie Beach and the Whitsunday islands provide the perfect backdrop for a sunset cruise, as well as other cruises including afternoon cruises twice weekly, private charters for birthdays, corporate groups, weddings or any celebration.

TOUR GUIDE VS. TOUR LEADER
Tour Guide
Often locals with intimate knowledge of an area, its culture, and history. Their role entails providing commentary, routing the tour, and seeing that people have a good time. They are a licensed, qualified expert who supplies specific information on history, art, architecture and culture of the city/village/attraction in which he or she is guiding the tour. The guide meets the group at the required place and leaves the group at the end of the tour, they do not travel with the group. 
 
Tour Leader
An experienced person tasked with ensuring the smooth operation of tours, as well as providing practical support to passengers throughout the whole trip. Their role primarily includes assisting with accommodation, transportation between locations, and communication with tour guides at each stop. A tour leader may provide general guidance around a city or village, and offer information on the place visited on the bus, however, they are not required to have specific knowledge on art, architecture, or history. They are not allowed to provide a guided tour or commentary of a city/village/attraction once there and if caught doing so, can be fined. 
Please note: Tour leaders/guides are not a standard inclusion in all travel offers. Tour leaders/guides will only be made available when particularly required to enhance the experience of the destination featured. 
 
CLIMATE & AVERAGE TEMPERATURES
Airlie Beach and The Whitsundays
- Airlie Beach enjoys a subtropical climate that provides fine, mild weather year round. The surrounding islands experience a hot and humid wet season from November through to May however Airlie Beach remains at a relatively steady 32 degrees Celsius with less humidity during these summer months.
- Winter in Airlie Beach falls between June to October and although the climate does get cooler, temperatures are still quite warm compared to the rest of Australia. The temperature drops to about 16 degrees Celsius during this time with a maximum of 27 degrees Celsius however most days the temperature is a mild 23 degrees Celsius allowing you to enjoy pleasant weather year round.
- Much of Airlie Beach's wonderful weather and comfortable climate can be attributed to its stunning location on the Queensland coast off the Great Barrier Reef.
