Feel the white silica sands of Whitehaven Beach beneath your feet as you wander up the beach towards the shifting tidal waters of Hill Inlet at the northern end of Whitsunday Island.
Offshore, a yacht is anchored in the calm waters, resting after navigating through the tropical islands and chasing spectacular sunsets.
Overhead a seaplane carries wide-eyed explorers that are speechless at the sight of the Great Barrier Reef stretching out for kilometres in front of them.
Below the waterline, divers get a fish-eye view of this magical underwater world where turtles, manta rays and tonnes of fish go about their lives.
Meanwhile, Airlie Beach on the Whitsunday Coast is bustling with locals and holiday-makers meandering around in the sunshine on the esplanade, by the lagoon and dining in casual outdoor restaurants with a cocktail in hand.
Welcome to paradise.
