Island Hopping On an Incredible Private Yacht

The Whitsunday islands cater to the yacht lovers and the sailing enthusiasts. Its perfectly serene waters and winds amid spectacular views feature 74 islands to hop from and to. Luckily for the privacy seekers 69 of these islands are uninhabited.
You can even try out bare boating. It is basically stocking up your boat with all provisions you need and sailing off into the jaw-dropping sunset in the Australian horizon. Even if you do not have experience in sailing, you can ask around and find a place to rent a yacht for your exhilarating excursion.

Enjoy a Ride across the Continent in a Luxurious Train

Step into another Dimension at the Pinnacles
The Pinnacles are found in the Nambung National Park in Western Australia. You will find the Pinnacles Desert around 250 miles north of Perth.
