The Whitsunday Islands are located on the coast of Queensland in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef. They are a beautiful holiday location of sun, sea and sand, and visiting the Whitsundays is at the top of any good bucket list. A holiday in the Whitsundays is your chance to relax, but to do that there are a few things you should keep in mind. Here are our top travel tips for making the most of your holiday in the Whitsundays:
Especially in peak travel periods, it’s always wise to book ahead. Hotels, flights, and tours can be booked out during busy holiday times and you don’t want to miss out on making the most of your holiday in the Whitsundays because you left booking to the last minute. Shop around online for hotels and flights, and book tours that will ensure you don’t miss out on the best of the Great Barrier Reef and Whitsunday Islands.
When shopping around for the best tours for your holiday in the Whitsundays, always book tours with experienced tour companies. The Whitsundays are a busy tourist location, but not all tour companies are the same quality. Book with tour companies who have years of experience so you can be sure you will travel with knowledgeable staff who will ensure your Great Barrier Reef tour is relaxing, exciting and informative. With Wings you are guaranteed the service of an award winning company with years of experience.
Your tour operator can help with this too, making sure you see the best of the Whitsundays while enjoying safe snorkelling, scuba diving and sailing practices. But there’s a lot of safety measures that you need to consider as well. A holiday in the Whitsundays is a chance to relax at the beach and swim in the sea, but always make sure you are sun safe: slip, slop, slap! And find out the safe areas and times to swim while avoiding the jelly fish.
Most of all, have fun! A holiday in the Whitsundays is a travel opportunity of a lifetime. It’s your chance to relax, explore and re-energise! Discover the Great Barrier Reef and the Whitsunday Islands, and enjoy one of the natural wonders of the world.
