The Whitsundays are 74 islands off the coast of Queensland in the Airlie Beach and Shute Harbour area and the islands are accessible to the  Great Barrier Reef.  The islands are fairly close together and this is Australia's premier sailing territory.  Two-thirds of the region is national park and there are 10 island resorts plus the resort area of Airlie Beach.    It has sheltered turquoise waters and pristine beauty and since it is on the same latitude as Rio de Janeiro and Tahiti, the Whitsundays enjoy tropical climate year round.   This area covers only 100 miles and is a gateway to the Great Barrier Reef. The resorts in the Whitsundays range from 5-stars to 3-stars and all can be booked through Your Travel Source.  Below are just a few of the resorts in the Whitsundays.
