Australia is the sixth largest country in the world. This is the homeland of vast deserts tropical rainforests, impressive mountain ranges and over seven thousand unspoilt beaches. This magnificent scenery makes Australia a destination of choice for nature-lovers.
The Whitsunday islands lie in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef, in the warm waters of Australia's Coral Sea. Most of the 74 tropical islands are beautiful, tropical deserted islands but on 8 of those islands you can find a variety of resort accommodation. The resorts offer a lot of anchorage space and each island resort's ambience and facilities are different, which means more variety for your island experience. These islands are also a favourite snorkelling site.
Hook Island is the second-largest of the Whitsundays islands and is predominantly a national park. The island is almost uninhabited and quite rugged. The island's northern coast is favoured among tourists for its colourful underwater coral growths and a popular snorkelling site.
Langford Island is relatively small but long, sandy island. The most interesting thing about this island is the long sand strip that nearly disappears at high tide! This is an excellent spot for a picnic, sunbathing, swimming and snorkelling.
