The Whitsundays is the perfect destination to host your next business event.

The Whitsundays is located in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef, consisting of 74 island wonders (including resorts on Hamilton Island, Daydream Island, Long Island, Camp Island and InterContinental Hayman Island), the casual beach towns of Airlie Beach and Bowen and the charming hinterland villages of Proserpine and Collinsville.

The tropical resort town of Airlie Beach is the stepping off point for the Great Barrier Reef and Whitsunday Islands and offers a great range of dining and live music.

Proserpine is full of historical charm and art deco design that will have any enthusiast enthralled. Lake Proserpine is an ideal spot for water sports and freshwater fishing.

Bowen is the northern jewel in The Whitsundays crown – the picturesque seaside town is a beachcomber’s paradise with eight secluded beaches, stunning fringing reefs where you can snorkel straight off the beach and beautiful bays.

Drive inland from the coast, and you arrive at Collinsville, the heart of the Whitsundays outback, a small country town known for its historic mining attractions, mateship, traditional hospitality and the Coalface Experience Museum.

With two airports located in The Whitsundays, it’s easy to get here. Whitsunday Coast Airport and Hamilton Island Airport offer direct flights from Brisbane, Cairns, Melbourne, Rockhampton and Sydney.

The Whitsunday region has over 6,000 hotel rooms and apartments, ranging from three star to luxury, with meeting spaces suitable for small workshops and conferences as well as venues able to host 1,000 attendees.

From island conference venues to unique lunch experiences on Langford Island sand bar or Whitehaven Beach and team building activities such as hiking, kayaking and day trips to the Great Barrier Reef, The Whitsundays is the best location to host memorable business events.

With over 150 experiences to enjoy in The Whitsundays, from sailing to snorkelling, scenic flights to segways and croc spotting tours, the opportunities are endless for a truly unique business event in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef.
