Nothing says ‘reward’ like a tropical island getaway, and the Whitsundays is the ultimate destination. The 74 Islands of the Whitsundays are dotted in the Coral Sea just off the Whitsunday Coast, located in the Heart of the Great Barrier Reef and are an incentive planner’s dream.
Easily accessible via two airports in the region, the Whitsundays offers venues and facilities for every size and style of corporate incentive and meeting.
From a private island for a high-level board meeting to a resort capable of hosting hundreds in comfort and style, look no further than the Whitsundays.
The 74 islands of the Whitsundays form the largest offshore island chain on Australia's coastline. The bulk are beautiful, tropical, deserted islands, but Daydream, Hamilton, Hayman and Lindeman Islands offer a variety of resort accommodation all with the Great Barrier Reef and fringing coral reefs at their door step.
Airlie Beach on the Whitsunday Coast is the buzzing hub of the region, with spectacular views across the Coral Sea out to the islands and with a range of venues, restaurants and accommodation to suit all styles and budgets. Relaxing on the Whitsunday Coast is just as tropical as the islands, with beautiful sunsets looking out over the islands and a buzzing town centre in which to enjoy fresh local produce and seafood.
Activities, accommodation and entertainment options are endless.
If it’s the ‘wow factor’ you’re after, consider a themed beach dinner, complete with live music and fire jugglers.
If yours is a competitive group, there is nothing like a golf tournament with the Coral Sea as the backdrop. Or a yacht race –supplied complete with professional skippers!
For pure relaxation, consider a cruise to the sparkling white sands of Whitehaven Beach complete with a picnic (Oprah style) showcasing prawns, oysters and reef fish.
The Great Barrier Reef is laid out before the Whitsundays like a magical underwater carpet – and it’s easily accessible by boat, plane or helicopter. You can swim, snorkel or scuba dive in it, sail on it, or fly over it for a stunning bird’s eye view.
The Whitsundays are nature’s stress relief, combining the most beautiful natural environment with the most civilised facilities and service in the world. From sailing to snorkeling, scuba diving to pampering day spas, the Whitsundays offer something special for any incentive group.
Last year in November 2011 delegates from Dreamtime, Tourism Australia's premier trade event for international corporate meeting and incentive decision makers spent three days experiencing Queensland's incentive destinations including the Gold Coast, Whitsundays and Cairns and the Great Barrier Reef.
