The Whitsundays is a treasure trove of endless adventures. With year-round sunshine, glistening blue waters and an entire underwater world to explore, it’s a bucket-list destination for people from all walks of life across the globe. 

There is no better way to experience the magic of the Whitsundays for yourself than with an Easter getaway to WAHI. Coinciding with school holidays for most Australian schools, this time of year will bring plenty of new experiences, all kinds of activities and every attraction you need to ensure the entire family has the holiday of a lifetime. 
After welcoming many, many families through our doors during the Easter school holidays, we’ve put together our top four reasons why spending the Easter long weekend at WAHI is eggstra fun.

1. Schools out!

Heading away during the school holidays is a great way to enjoy time as a family. During the frenzy of the school term, it can be tricky to get everyone together in one place, at one time. The beauty of a trip during the school holidays is that your little ones won’t be distracted by homework, you won’t be juggling after school activities and you’ll have the chance to completely relax as a family.

As the school holidays and Easter long weekend include several public holidays, it’s also possible to line up an extended trip without having to take too much time off work. A mini-getaway is the perfect way for you to recharge your batteries ahead of the new school term so you can hit the ground running. You’ll also leave with a supply of family memories that you’re guaranteed to still be talking about in years to come.


2. Beautiful one day, perfect the next

By the time Easter rolls around, the Whitsunday’s wet season has come to its end and the island sees very minimal rain. With plenty of sunshine every day of the week, it’s one of our favourite times of the year. The average temperature sits at a balmy 24°C, which is the ideal weather for long days at the beach, snorkelling trips out on a boat and sunset drinks on your private WAHI balcony.

With slightly less humidity than the summer months, the weather in April is also perfect for keen golfers wanting to take a swing at Dent Island with their family or fitness enthusiasts ready to take on one of the island’s many hiking trails.

3. Fun for everyone

As a busy time of year on the island, there’s always an action-packed schedule of events to keep the entire family entertained. Be sure to keep an eye on the activity guide as you’re bound to find plenty of fun activities like meeting the Easter Bunny, outdoor movie nights and even scavenger hunts.




4. Host an Easter lunch

While there are plenty of special activities and events on offer over Easter on the island, sometimes the most memorable parts of a trip are the simplest moments spent together as a family. As a WAHI guest, you’ll have a fully-equipped kitchen, spacious lounge and private balcony, so that you can host your very own Easter lunch from your apartment.

Simply duck a few minutes down the road to the local IGA to pick up your supplies before whipping up a feast to remember. Or if you would rather, head out to order the takeaway of your choice and enjoy a gourmet meal without having to lift a finger.


With Easter quickly approaching, bookings are in high demand and availability is limited. If you like the sound of spending your next Easter with us at WAHI, now is the perfect time to lock in your school holiday break for 2022.
