100 Magic Miles of the Great Barrier Reef: The Whitsunday Islands

100 Magic Miles is the authoritative guide to the Whitsunday Islands. It is known in the area as 'the bible' because it contains exhaustive, accurate information about all aspects of this Queensland holiday paradise

Since the 10th Edition Revised was published in 2014 several of the island resorts in the Whitsundays have shut their doors, and some new owners are planning multi-million dollar developments. The legendary Hayman Island has had an extensive refurbishment and is now operated by the internationally recognised One and Only resort consortium.

On the mainland there has been extensive redevelopment at Port of Airlie, with a modern cruise terminal operated by Cruise Whitsundays, a bus terminal, and there is renewed interest in new housing lots and other commercial development around The Boathouse apartments and shopping complex.

Abell Point Marina is under new management, which has given this facility a huge face-lift, with new expanded parking facilities and other amenities. It is on track to become a major part of the social fabric of the Whitsundays with new open public spaces, restaurants, a yacht club and new incentives for marina occupants.

The information on anchorages in the book has been completely updated to reflect the latest situation on the water in the Whitsundays – moorings, reef protection marks, current fishing regulations, and many changes in facilities for yachties at a number of locations, including South Molle Island, Hook Island, Lindeman and Brampton islands and Keswick Island.

A majority of the pages in the book have had some addition or amendment to reflect the current situation.
