As we head into the winter months, visitors are flocking to the region to enjoy our gorgeous, mild climate and our serene waters.

So book now to ensure you can fit these exciting happenings into your holiday schedule.

For the Love of the Water

From 11-14 June, the Hamilton Island Clash of the Paddles will take place. This thrilling event attracts some pretty fierce athletes, and the competition is a tough one. Over four days, participants compete in a variety of races on the water, including outrigger canoe racing, paddling, and ocean and surf ski events. This event, previously known as the Hamilton Cup, draws competitors from across the globe, as they battle it out to be crowned champion. Gorgeous Hamilton Island provides a luxurious backdrop for this incomparable event, and after the four exciting days of racing, you can join in unique and entertaining festivities on land.

Are You Ready for a Crazy Challenge?

If water sports aren’t your thing, you may want to consider signing up for something on land that is a bit more unusual. Obstacles Gone Mad, held in the Whitsundays on 30 May presents an incredible adventure for its participants and an entertaining spectacle for its audience. Test your endurance, your resilience, and your spirit of fun with this giant obstacle course. You’ll have a blast running, climbing, crawling, lifting, sliding, and more as you and your team make your way toward the finish line. Children and adults alike can participate, with appropriate races and courses of varying lengths and abilities. This promises to be a memorable day in the Whitsundays, so you’ll want to make sure you’re here for it.

Participate or Enjoy the Show

These two Whitsunday events are going to be an incredible amount of fun, both for competitors and for observers. If you don’t want to join in the adventure, come watch the competitors tough it out, with the stunning backdrop of the Whitsundays all around. Plan to arrive before each event to take advantage of a few days of pure relaxation, or, book your yacht charter for the dates following the event of your choice. You’ll still have plenty of time to soak up the sun and relish all that the Whitsundays have to offer.
