74 Islands basking in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef
Explore the Whitsundays Islands with Matador Whitsundays
The naming of islands can be directly attributed to the infamous Captain Cook. He and his crew discovered the passage on what they believed to be Whitsunday, which falls seven days after Easter and is more commonly known in the Christian calendar as Pentecost.
The Whitsunday islands are a chain of 74 islands in the Barrier Reef with island names like Hook,
However only a small proportion of the islands are habitable with whitsundays accommodation ranging from budget friendly to all-inclusive options to opulent luxury.
Wherever you stay you will be tantalized by these jewels of green with fringes of white that lie in shades of blue ranging from turquoise to crystal clear to gentian blue that are just waiting to be explored.
Below the surface of the Whitsunday Islands is a abundant amount of coral teaming with colourful fish darting in-between the coral, manta rays, whales, dolphins and turtles just to name a few. Matador Whitsundays will explore this amazing natural wonder of the world don’t forgot to take lots of pictures to take back home with you to remind you of what paradise looks like.
One could be forgiven into thinking that exploring would be solely focused on exploring the inviting blue of the sea, but after your Matador Whitsundays tour there is another world to explore and this is the tropical green jungle.
The Cedar Creek Falls, has a seasonal waterfall which is only twenty minutes from Airlie Beach. If you’re really looking for something different go crocodile spotting on the Proserpine River. If you like walking there are extensive trails to explore the rain-forest in Conway National Park. Or walk the Whitsunday Ngaro Sea Trail that includes Whitsunday Island, South Molle Island and Nara Inlet. The Ngara Cultural Centre is included on the trail and is home to a rock shelter with art motifs and cultural deposits. The trail tracks vary in difficulty with the waters between the islands usually calm and can be navigated by kayak. Go further north to Bowen if you have more time to see the Top of the Whitsundays or visit Collinsville a historical rural mining town.
