Whitsunday Island is known for beaches and nature. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: enjoy the sand and surf at Whitehaven Beach, contemplate the waterfront views at Hill Inlet, and step off the mainland to explore Whitsunday Islands National Park.

Plan my Whitsunday Island trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Melbourne to Whitsunday Island is an approximately 4.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and bus; or take a train. Traveling from Melbourne in January, expect Whitsunday Island to be a bit warmer, temps between 36°C and 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel to Daydream Island.
