As the cold takes hold in Europe and winter is just around the corner - I can already see snow from my window in the Alps – I’ve chosen to warm up with a destination that is simply my favourite place in the world.
Having lived almost a decade in Australia has given me the chance to visit amazing places and for me who loves the beach, the sea, and the sun, it has been a real blessing.
No surprise that I stayed in Greece after my Solo Wedding in Santorini…
But without further ado, let's take a look at the map to see where exactly Hill Inlet is located:
This inlet is located at the northern end of Whitehaven Beach - one of Australia's most famous beaches - on Whitsunday Island, the largest of the 74 islands in the Whitsundays.
This archipelago - mostly uninhabited - lies in the Coral Sea, between the northeast coast of Queensland and the Great Barrier Reef.
Obviously, to get there, the boat is essential, whether it’s a big yacht, a sailboat or a small motorboat, the important thing is to arrive at the destination.
I’ve had the chance to go there a few times and each time it has been an extraordinary adventure both from a human point of view and by the beauty of nature ...
(FYI all photos are mine, without filter or retouching)
Covering an area of nearly 109 km2, the island enjoys a tropical climate.
It was populated by the Ngaro aborigines for 8,000 years before being expelled under British colonisation.
The name Whitsunday was chosen by James Cook when he discovered the island in 1770.
To access the best viewpoint of the island, you’re going through the forest, a nice walk that allows you to learn more about the many wild species of the island: birds, plants, varans, rays and reef sharks.
I never tire of this extraordinary view with multiple shades of blue and crystal clear waters.
Beauty in its purest and natural state, no filter or retouching, here any photo is a postcard...
And even going back to sea level, one continues to be amazed and enveloped by this wild nature, so vibrant and yet peaceful.
Thank you to keep preserving this amazing place!
And of course, you noticed this magnificent white sand, as far as the eye can see ...
So thin, it sings when one stepped on.
You can leave me here anytime; this is my heaven on earth!
