A Whitsundays trip and treat

By Olive Cooke | Featuring Olive Cooke and Emily Hutchinson
Whitsundays, Australia
17/01/2017

The Islands of OZ - raw, moody, beautiful, dramatic and totally unique to Australia. This is our Whitsunday Odyssey featuring Olive Cooke, Emily Hutchinson and Dave Frim.


Olive Cooke and Emily Hutchinson sail into the glorious Whitsundays to go camping on Australia's number 1 beach Whitehaven Beach on Whitsunday Island, Queensland.

"Whitehaven Beach is exactly how I imagined it – postcard perfect white sands swirled with turquoise waters, something much more worthy than a computer screensaver. Here we set up an umbrella on the powdery soft white sands and blissed out in the paradise of perfect Queensland, soaking up the sun and taking dips in the warm water. Seven kilometres of sand meant there was people few and far between - private and tranquil perfection." @olivecooke

Travel Guides

  1. Darwin and Tiwi Islands

    We explore the Northern Territory outback, the local Darwin food, bar and music scene and the nearby Tiwi Islands for a cultural hit and some infamous Barra fishing with the local indigenous guides.

  2. The Whitsundays travel guide

    "I''ve travelled around the world and the most beautiful place i have ever seen is in our backyard - the Whitsundays” - Emily Hutchinson @emelinaah
    We planned a fun 8-day Whitsunday holiday filled with reef diving, island hopping, water activities and plenty of time to relax. The trip kicked off with three days in Airlie Beach which was enough time to chat to the locals and get the inside story on the best things to do and explore in the Whitsundays. Every conversation pointed to two things: a one-day Cruise Whitsundays dive trip to the outer Great Barrier Reef and a sea plane flight over Heart Reef and Whitehaven Beach with Air Whitsunday. Then we spent four leisurely days on a #gobareboating catamaran exploring the 74 Whitsunday Islands. Thanks to our very own skipper (a local who knew just the right places), we stumbled across our own secret beaches, found hidden gems and watched the tropical Whitsunday world go by. Our trip ended with an overnight stay on glorious Hamilton Island - and a chance to mix water sports and hiking activities with chill outs by the resort pool and enjoy quality restaurant and cocktail time.
