Whitsundays Backpackers Hostels & Budget Accommodation

Because the region is about halfway between the Gold Coast and Cairns, the Whitsundays' astonishing beauty and adventurous spirit usually elicits a huge sigh of relief for anyone who's arrived in a Greyhound bus or a Kombi van.
It's no surprise then that Airlie Beach is one of the most popular destinations for high school leavers during the Schoolies week festivities.
