Visiting the Whitsunday Islands is among the awesome and most amazing things to do in Australia. This group of islands offers some fantastic sailing with calm seas, up to 74 islands for guests to hop through, mostly perfect winds, and beautiful scenery. Hire a boat, stock it with friends and provisions and sail your way to the sunset. This is called ‘bareboating.’ Even if you do not have any sailing experience, there are some companies that can give you a safety briefing with a yacht and set you free. Just ensure that you respond to their radio schedule to let them know where you are heading and where you are at the moment.
