Adventurer's Paradise  

The Whitsundays has its adventurous side for those who like a bit of action with their holiday! You can dive, snorkel and sail in the Whitsundays with the Great Barrier Reef providing a natural shelter that ensures safe, calm waters. There is also excellent fishing, including rivers, lakes, estuaries and ocean fishing. Chasing giant trevally on the outer reef is an adrenalin packed pastime.  There is also a wide choice of watersports on offer in the Whitsundays including jetskiing and wake boarding for the speed-freaks and parasailing if you want to get high over the islands and mainland.  And for the ultimate high, you can skydive from a plane at several thousand feet above the ground, enjoying the best view of the Whitsundays as you hurtle through the air on your aerial adventure.a

HISTORICAL and HERITAGE SITES





The Whitsundays has a long and rich cultural heritage, beginning with the ancient Ngaro indigenous people who have lived in the Whitsundays region for over 8,000 years. The original inhabitants of the Whitsundays, the Ngaro moved seasonally throughout the islands in search of food and had no permanent settlements. The Ngaro were keen fisherpeople, making the most of the abundance of fish and other marine animals around the islands. They used spears and fashioned simple bark canoes 2-3 metres long, often made from a single piece of bark.
To truly experience this ancient tradition and view some of the cultural remains including rock art, visitors can hike to the Ngaro Cultural Site at Nara Inlet on Hook Island. Another site of significance to the Ngaro is Hill Inlet on Whitsunday Island, and to this day the upper reaches of the inlet are considered a sacred site and a permit is required for access.arn More

WHALE WATCHING


Whales visit the Whitsundays every year on their annual migration north during the winter months. From June to September, whales are a common sight frolicking amongst the islands and even occasionally out on the Great Barrier Reef. They choose the Whitsundays to give birth to their calves, choosing the warm, calm, protected waters of the Whitsundays as in ideal nursery.
While formal whale watching tours in the Whitsundays are at a minimum, whale sightings are a free bonus inclusion on most tours around the region. The best way to see whales is to hop on any of the day tours around the Whitsunday waters, as whale sightings occur almost daily for most of the boats in the region during these peak winter months.
