But where is the Whitsundays actually located?
The Whitsundays are an island region located in the Northern part of Australia in the state of Queensland. It has always been and continues to be a world-class holiday destination, drawing millions of travellers to its sandy beaches, tropical islands and the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park.
As the home to the world-famous Heart Reef, Whitehaven Beach, Hamilton Island, Whitsunday Island and Hill Inlet, it is easy to see that it is a blessed part of the world - and the small 'village-like' town of Airlie Beach, is the icing on the cake.
Perched on Queensland's east coast, approximately 600 kilometres south of Cairns and 1100 kilometres north of the capital city of Brisbane, is the seaside town of Airlie Beach. It is located above the Tropic of Capricorn and sits at 20.3441 degrees south, 148.1893 degrees east.
Airlie Beach features one main street, three marinas and everything you will need for your holiday escape, including ample accommodation and restaurant options, to ensure you have the perfect tropical getaway.
The most convenient way to get to the Whitsundays is a short flight into either of its airports, which are the Whitsunday Coast (Proserpine) Airport and Hamilton Island Airport. They both service all major airlines and offer affordable flights on a daily basis.
Finding accommodation is just as easy with heaps of options to choose from to suit various budgets, needs and locations with some situated in the main street itself or in surrounding areas.
