Study abroad in Whitsunday Islands

Study English in the Whitsundays region, a group of 74 idyllic islands lying off the coast of Queensland.

Located in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef, the Whitsundays are a fantastic destination for those interested in marine life and scuba diving or snorkeling. The islands are also a sailing Mecca as the reef provides shelter to the area thus ensuring calm, safe waters. The region is full of national parks where you can appreciate local wildlife and follow walking trails in unspoiled natural landscapes. 

Within the Whitsundays region there are numerous beautiful beaches, but Whitehaven Beach on Whitsunday Island is particularly famous because of its award-winning pure white sand. This is the group's central and largest island, although the area's commercial centre and most developed island is Hamilton Island.

Airlie Beach and the nearby Shute Harbor on the Australian mainland are the coastal hub and gateway to the islands. As many of the Whitsundays are uninhabited, visitors often choose to stay on the mainland from where you can easily reach the islands by boat during a day trip. Surrounded by rainforests and beautiful beaches with crystal clear waters, Airlie Beach and the surrounding area is also a very popular holiday destination in its own right.
