The Whitsunday Islands

The Whitsunday Islands in Queensland, Australia is home to the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. From the famous Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet, to Daydream Island and the village of Airlie Beach, it was absolute paradise, and the most incredible tropical landscape I experienced while traveling through Australia – which is no easy task considering the abundance of amazing beaches around the country.

In total, I spent eight days in and around the islands, with six nights in Airlie Beach and another two on Daydream Island.

The trip included two commercial boat excursions (Ocean Rafting and Camira Sailing), one private boat charter, one Seabob ride, one skydive, and countless wallabies, cockatoos, and secluded beaches.

If the video doesn’t already tell you… I would do it all over again in a heartbeat, and I highly recommend you doing the same.

Until then, here’s a few parting shots…

Whitsunday Islands - Hill Inlet

The famous Hill Inlet in the Whitsundays is a stunning inlet located at the northern end of Whitehaven Beach on Whitsunday Island (the largest of the 74 islands). As the tide shifts, low tide brings out the incredible white sand and blue and green hues of the inlet, which makes for a stunning scene. I captured this photo with my drone… I am the tiny black dot at the very bottom middle of the photo.

Whitsunday Islands - Whitehaven Beach

The most pristine water I have ever witnessed was found at Whitehaven Beach. If you look closely, you can actually see the shadows of a school of fish swim by.

Tents setup along the beach during the market in Airlie Beach.This was one of the highlights of the trip, but I just couldn’t fit it into the video. We walked around sampling dumplings, tacos and the most delicious Bowen mango smoothie on a perfect little Saturday morning.

Whitsunday Islands - Night Sky

The night sky around the islands was absolutely insane. This photo was taken too early, but on most nights we got a clear shot of the milky way.

A special thanks to the Whitsunday Tourism Office and Daydream Island for putting this entire trip together.

    1. Hello, I am Theresa Williams After being in relationship with Anderson for years, he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem. email: ( you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or any other Case.
