Here at Whitsunday Getaway, we realise that the natural beauty of the Whitsundays and Great Barrier Reef is under threat due to climate change and rapidly warming waters. The islands, reefs and waters that we have grown up amongst and cherish are in imminent danger, and we put it at the forefront of our agenda to do our part in offsetting issues such as coral bleaching and decreasing biodiversity. As locals, we want to see this incredible corner of the world thrive and flourish, and one of the most important steps in doing so is to raise awareness and teach visitors about the wonders of our backyard. By upholding sustainable, mindful, conservation and eco-friendly practices, we aim to educate visitors about the beauty, threats and possibilities for the Great Barrier Reef. We hope to teach, inspire and preserve the Whitsundays' vast ecosystems for all future generations to cherish and enjoy.
We would like to acknowledge the traditional landowners and recognise that First Nation's sovereignty has never been ceded. By visiting the Whitsundays, you are staying on land traditionally owned and inhabited by the Gia, Giru and Ngaro People. We feel very privileged to be able to live and share this very special piece of paradise with our guests from near and far.
