The Queensland region
Situated on mainland Whitsunday Coast, Shute Harbour has long been known as the gateway to the Whitsunday Islands. There is a plethora of day trips to visit the islands, Great Barrier Reef and Whitehaven Beach.
74 Island Wonders, located in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef, on the tropical coast of Queensland, Australia. A visit to the Whitsundays is a feast of the senses, surrounded by natural beauty, dotted with secluded beaches and friendly towns from which to explore. The hardest part is choosing how to fit it all in.
Whale watching season goes from June to September in the Whitsundays. It's a great time to visit while it's cold and rainy down south!
There are some lovely walks from the property - Coral Beach and Swamp Bay. It's also nice just to stay in, read a good book and watch the boats go by!
JANUARY TO EARLY APRIL is tropical wet season in Northern Australia - the weather is generally hot and humid and it rains - mostly at night.
We are situated in tropical northern Australia. January through to March is our tropical wet season. It is generally hot and humid and wet for those couple of months.
Generally April through to December is the most stable weather in this tropical region.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT WHITSUNDAY RETREAT:
"Seriously why would you pay double the price on one of the islands? Stunning view and facilities and absolute privacy despite being part of a duplex. Easy access to all activities from Shute Harbour. Thank you for the stay and we will be back! I would seriously recommend this place if considering spending the equivalent on the islands as the view and facilities you get here would be worth $1000+ per night on Hamilton. And you can easily get there for dinner for a cheap ferry ride if you want to!: Sam and Hannah Sep13
"We went to stay for 6 lovely days and nights at this property. The owner is extremely kind - picking us up in shute harbour. She was also extremely respectful of our privacy. As for the place itself - it has the most amazing views of water and the islands. The photos simply do not do justice to how stunning the views are. They also appeared to us to be the best views in the whole Airlie beach region! There is a lovely hot-water spa which we made use of every day and an infinity pool. The Studio apartment feels much bigger than a studio apartment and is very tastefully decorated. There is no TV reception but there is a hard-drive that has some really good movies and a lot of good TV shows, as well as music. The facilities have everything you could want to cook a meal or do a grill outside and we could not recommend this more as a couple's getaway to really get away from it all in paradise."

"Meg and I would like to thank you for providing such beautiful accommodation.
Ron is a great host, very friendly and willing to assist in any way.
We had an amazing time up there, and are sad to be back at work down in cold Melbourne.....
Can't wait to visit again.
Kind Regards, Rob" March 2012
"What an amazing few days we had staying at the Whitsunday retreat. It was a perfect place to spend a honeymoon, but actually I could stay there just to be there. To open your eyes in the morning to see the tree covered islands and the turquoise sea was just magical. The apartment was ideal for any couple even though the weather was not fantastic we were able to chill in absolute comfort and style. The infinity pool and then the warm jaccuci melted our aches away after long tropical walks and lazy days at Coral Beach. We must thank Cathi and Ron for picking us up from the Harbour with cases etc. They made us fill so welcome, offering advice on walks, fauna and flora etc and yet respected our privacy.!" June 2012
"Absolutely UNBELIEVABLE place!!!! Stayed a week, wish we could have stayed longer. The location is perfect, it was close enough to Airlie Beach to enjoy the restuarants but we loved being away from the noisy people " Aug12
