The Whitsunday region has become an increasingly popular place to get married as well as host business and sporting events, conferences and festivals - it's an ideal location for any event.

 Whitsunday Regional Council takes great pride in maintaining the public parks and gardens around the region for everyone to enjoy.  Most areas have access to amenities blocks close by and power can be accessed by prior arrangement at most sites.
