Whitsunday Dream Sail

When you wake up in Paradise (a.k.a. Airlie Beach), you don’t want to waste a single precious holiday second.   

But if you’re sans wheels for getting around the Whitsunday Coast, no problem!  

Heart of Reef Shuttles can get you from A to B to sightsee, in no time at all.  

This family-run service has been operating in the Whitsundays for more than a decade.  

Their shuttles are on the road 365 days a year, with regular services between Proserpine Airport and lovely Airlie – or private transfers, if you prefer.  

And who needs Google Maps when you’ve got a team that knows the region like the back of their suntanned hands?  

Ask the driver for tips on what to see and do – and you’re likely to walk away with enough ideas for several return trips to the Whitsundays. 

Certain to be on the suggestion list is bareboat chartering – the chance to soak up the Whitsunday’s spectacular islands, under sail and in style. 

Queensland Yacht Charters have around 40 vessels in their fleet – so take your pick.  You can choose to self-sail or take along a skipper. Either way, your Dream Yacht Charter will put you smack bang in the big blue, surrounded by tropical reefs and emerald isles.  

Here’s a tip: Don’t forget to stock provisions before you leave harbour!  If you’re after quality comestibles, Gabi from Peach & Pear Emporium and Catering is your gal.  

Whether it’s a romantic picnic hamper for two – or a week’s worth of food for your bareboat holiday – she can stock you up with everything you need, much of it locally sourced and all of it exquisitely delicious.
