16 November 2009

There is something for everybody when visiting the Great Barrier Reef's Whitsunday Islands in Australia, it has been claimed.

Located off the tropical Queensland coast, the 74 islets offer "premium luxury escapes", with relaxing and adventurous holidays alike, suite101.com reports.

"Set amid one of the natural wonders of the world, the Whitsunday Islands are among Australia's top tourist attractions," it stated.

According to the news source, travelling is also made easy, with the locations being accessible by air, rail, sea and road.

While most of the area is uninhabited, it added, those that cater to the luxury crowd include Hamilton Island and Hayman Island, with the former being the only permanently populated region of the Whitsundays, while the latter has a five-star resort.

The Great Barrier Reef was recently described as "awe-inspiring" by Col McKenzie, executive director of the Association of Marine Park Tourism Operators.

He told the Cairns Post that mass coral spawning displays that typically occur in the last three months of the year are "spectacular".ADNFCR-2704-ID-19461608-ADNFCR
