International Yachting Destination: Australia
About 20 miles off the coast of Queensland, Australia, lie the Whitsunday Islands, a sprawling chain of 74 isles offering pristine beaches, colorful coral reefs, and protected water that has gained a reputation as a world-class sailor’s playground. Life Down Under is never so inviting for yachting as in these tropical isles and their surrounding marine park. Mostly uninhabited, they are the tops of long-extinct volcanoes surrounded by the sparkling sea.
Snorkeling and diving are main attractions in the Whitsundays, which are cradled by the Great Barrier Reef. A World Heritage Site, this spectacular reef is so large it is visible from space, and holds one of the most diverse collections of sea life on the planet. But be sure to take a break from diving and indulge in the fine cuisine served up by the luxury hotels on shore at Hamilton, Bedarra, or in the Hayman Islands, while enjoying their panoramic views. Before you leave, explore the breathtaking Cedar Creek falls, hidden deep in the rainforest of Whitsundays National Park.
