Whitsundays Part 1

In mid September as soon as Term 3 finished, we all (plus Imi’s friend, Sophie Dudley) flew up to Proserpine then took the Shuttle Bus to Airlie Beach.  Mark had already done the provisioning, so we headed straight out on a hot day with sparkling water.   We spent 4 gorgeous days just swimming and relaxing.

Highlights were

  • The amazingly beautiful Whitehaven, with lots of turtles
  • Turtle Bay – just around the corner from Whitehaven, so quite crowded, but very pretty

We spent our last night in Airlie (having dinner at a very average Italian place….) – but good to explore the town a bit.  Airlie is a very pretty spot – clean and well maintained and with a long boardwalk around from the Marina to the centre of town – it’s a bit like Byron Bay – lots of backpackers…..
