Whitsunday Islands Information

Comprising of 74 Islands on the Queensland North Coast, the Whitsundays are a group of tropical island havens that are a must-do when holidaying in Australia.

While some islands have resorts such as Hamilton Island and Long Island, most of the 74 are wild and free of human contact making them the ideal boating destination in the south pacific.

While these islands are famous for Whitehaven Beach and their soft corals there is so much more to discover and do while in the region.  See our top 10 things to do in the Whitsundays


With ZigZag Whitsundays Day Tour and Holiday Packages, you’ll get to visit more of the incredible Whitsunday Islands—including Whitehaven Beach, the holy grail of white sands and clear tropical waters. Snorkel at locations in the fringing Great Barrier Reef (high-quality equipment supplied—including wetsuits). Plus, experience what no other Whitsundays tour can do—visit Palm Bay Resort on Long Island, a small, tropical boutique resort, and end the day with a cold drink and swim in the pool
