If you’re looking for opportunities to prolong your holidays Gold Coast, take a flight to Whitsunday Islands lying in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef, amidst the waters of Australia’s Coral Sea. Here are a few reasons for escaping to this tropical paradise this holiday season.
Treat yourself Whitsunday style
Visit Australia’s premier luxury nature-resort destination, Hayman, to have a once-in-a-lifetime experience, just like Diane von Furstenberg who said she “fell in love with the five star private island resort” and decided to add a personal touch to the penthouse suite. Organic cotton linens, specially printed drapery, cashmere linings, and personal art collections are just the tip of the iceberg.
Surfing, scuba diving and snorkeling opportunities
For active holiday lovers, the islands are a dreamland. Scuba dive sites can be found up and down the Reef and around the islands, with rich marine life including dolphins, turtles, dugong whales and coloured corals. Some of the most beautiful scuba diving and snorkelling sights can be found here.
Good news for sport fans
Hamilton Island is going to host an international sporting event this December. European Championship winners Team Russia will compete at the 2012 UON SB20 World Championships on Hamilton Island. While the majority of the international teams are going to travel from Europe and the U.K., half of the participants are expected to join the competition from Australia.
The 74 tropical islands are a unique Queensland paradise. Whether you’re looking for ultimate romance and relaxation or island adventures, the destination is perfect for an unforgettable getaway.
