The Whitsundays and Great Barrier Reef
The Whitsunday Islands are situated in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and are protected from the ocean swells by the Great Barrier Reef itself. Whilst a bareboat cannot visit the Outer Barrier Reef, there are many superb anchorages in the Whitsunday group that offer extraordinary snorkelling and diving experiences. Whitehaven Beach is a must visit on everyone's itinerary and Hamilton Island Resort offers a great mid charter stopover.
Queensland Yacht Charters are based at Abel Point Marina in the heart of Airlie Beach. Within a 3km radius we have a major supermarket, butchers, restaurants, accommodation, liquor stores and the main CBD all at your fingertips.
