I needed to take a short break from Sydney. I decided the sunny Whitsundays would be all the medicine needed. Just two hours flight from Sydney to the Whitsunday Coast and a short shuttle bus to the main tourist town of Airlie Beach. There are plenty of accommodation options to choose from. Personally, I prefer to indulge myself in a little luxury. I’m staying at Coral Sea Resort in Airlie Beach, Queensland. Located on deep water frontage overlooking the crystal clear ocean.
The view is spectacular, no matter how hot it gets, there’s a lovely ocean breeze.
Plenty to do in Airlie Beach, from being totally lazy by the pool, to jet skiing, stand up paddle boarding, kayaking, fishing, joy flights, paragliding, snorkeling,scuba diving and sailing. I’ve stayed here annually for 18 years and it never bores me.
One of my favourite boating tours is Ocean Rafting. It’s fun and the fastest way to get to great snorkeling locations. Even just snorkeling, you will see spectacular fish, turtles and beautiful coral. It’s also an exciting trip out to one of the world’s best beaches, Whitehaven Beach.
I’ll be sad to go home!
