Whitsundays Primary Schools, High Schools and Educational Institutions

Although plenty of students would give their right foot to go to school in the Whitsundays (imagine going scuba diving or sky diving for school sport) but unfortunately the region is highly tourist-centric and doesn't have an outstanding range of educational institutions.

That being said, there are plenty of schools in the region, and although tertiary education is sparse in the Whitsundays themselves, there are universities and TAFEs nearby.

A directory of Whitsundays schools and educational institutions appears below...
