The Whitsundays is located at the heart of the Great Barrier Reef.  It is the world's greatest aquatic playground and home to over 74 tropical islands.

The Whitsundays offers one of the largest choices of marine tourism experiences - learn to scuba dive, sail on the pristine Great Barrier Reef marine park, relax on a tropical island resort or explore the many uninhabited island national parks.

Airlie Beach lagoon, situated on the landscaped Pacific Ocean foreshore, offers swimmers safe all year round free access to clear, clean waters, a stroll from the main street and 10 minutes bus ride from the Whitsundays College of English.

Conway National Park State rainforest areas offer a range of walking treks through tropical rainforests and with views of the sea and WhitsundaysIslands.

Centred around the local Sugar Mill, Proserpine is located inland from Airlie Beach and is rich in heritage. The Proserpine Museum houses thought-provoking displays which showcase the most significant achievements of this region during the last century.
