We took a bus from Cairns to Airlie beach the gateway for the Whitsunday Islands. It took about 8 hours which would have been fine had the aircon not packed up. Don’t get me wrong I love the heat but not when I’m sitting on a bus with faux leather seats!

The Whitsunday’s are beautiful islands and the best waters I have seen, aqua to emerald green and every colour in between. We went sailing on ‘Ragamuffin’ to Whitehaven Beach. The whitest, finest, softest sand I have ever had between my toes! We took a helicopter flight over the islands which gave a great perspective, it was rather expensive though.

    The Whitsundays are a gorgeous area and how perfect is it to sail there. Good warnings too. Gosh Beach Buggies look different these days...lol beautiful photos.

    Nice page, it brings back great memories. I was married on Whitehaven Beach in March and enjoyed myself so much that a return trip is planned, by the way the fine white sand isn`t sand, its silica, one of only 7 beaches of this type in the world.
