It is not very cheap to get to Whitsunday, there are tours offered by different companies in Airlie Beach. The place is so beautiful, see the inlet from the viewing platform

Amazing view. Best to go at low tide to enjoy the white sand contrast to the blue water. Walk the path from Whitehaven to get this amazing view of the Inlet Keep this a national park. Please no littering

We had WhitSunday Xpress tour organized for us. Lovely 900m up n flat bush walk. Easy walk, thongs, barefoot or sandals good enough. The view was magnificent. The white sand & blue water were amazing. Worth for a visit!

Not sure, it’s quite a walk to the inlet which I think would be quite a lot for a 3 year old!
