Christmas holidays is the one time of the year that the family gets to really relax for a few weeks and enjoy that quality time together.
While many parts of the world are planning a cold winter in the snow, here in Australia we get to celebrate the Christmas with the Summer season, and as a visitor to Australia you’ll know that it’s the best time of the year to visit!
With beautiful beaches, perfect weather and lots of sunshine, most of your Christmas is spent outdoors in the fresh air, rather than cooped up inside to escape the freezing cold.
While there are many great places to spend your Christmas holidays in Australia , one of the most popular destinations would have to be the Whitsunday Islands.
With a lush tropical backdrop, miles of beautiful white sandy beaches that extend on forever and of course the popular Great Barrier Reef at your doorstep ready to dive in and explore, you’ll find a Whitsundays Christmas holiday with the family is one you’ll never forget.
The Whitsundays offers plenty of great holiday spots, with the most popular for families being Hamilton Island and Daydream Island.
Airlie Beach is one of the most popular destinations in the Whitsundays region and has plenty to offer. With many great accommodation choices, from family-orientated through to luxury 5 star resorts you’ll find meeting the holiday budget and your expectations, is easy.
The kids will also enjoy Hamilton Island as there is plenty for them to see and do, including the Wildlife Park, where you can get up close with plenty of cute furry Australian animals, and even enjoy breakfast with the Koalas! Many of the best cruises all leave from Hamilton Island as well, so you can explore the Great Barrier Reef up close. The kids will love the Mini Golf, not to mention the Kegel 9 pin bowling alley. There are also plenty of other family activities to do on Hamilton Island including Catamaran Sailing, enjoying the large resort swimming pools or just snorkelling from the beach.
Hamilton Island also offers plenty of ‘kid-friendly’ dining options as well, such as the Manta ray Cafe and the Sails Steak and Seafood Grill.

Daydream Island is another very popular Christmas holiday destination in the Whitsundays for families. Daydream offers great packages for families that will suit your budget, and the kids will love this resort as it’s not as busy as the other Whitsunday island resorts but still gives them plenty to enjoy, such as the Outdoor cinema, where you can watch your favourite movies on a 44ft screen, or have fun on the challenging 19 hole mini golf course, and the popular Jungle Jumble Kids Playground will keep them amused for hours!.
The island also offers a great rainforest walk which only takes around 20 minutes and stretches the length of the island, with plenty of breathtaking views and wildlife to see on the way.
The Skippers Kids Club is also open daily, offering child care sessions and evening babysitting services, so you can also get some quality time while on your Christmas holiday.
