See the year out in the Whitsundays


END the year with a bang at the popular New Years Eve events in the Whitsundays.

The party centres around Airlie Beach, where a huge fireworks display and a range of functions along the party strip are sure to keep everyone entertained.

Most of the Whitsunday island resorts follow suit with fireworks for guests, and themed celebratory dinners.

And the sparkling blue azure seas of the Whitsundays are sure to clear any head on New Years Day, with plenty of choices to bring in the new year from stunning Whitehaven Beach to the Great Barrier Reef tours running throughout the holiday period.
