There's almost always a quiet place to anchor in the Whitsundays, which are pretty much deserted. Only a few islands have tourist facilities, and though the area is compact and easily cruised in a week, few boats are about. Happily sitting under the dry bimini, we contemplated the two main resort islands, Hayman and Hamilton. Hayman, with its purpose-built harbor, is top-end luxury. Game fishing is a big attraction, as is diving the Great Barrier Reef. Hamilton, too, has a harbor, but it is much bigger and more like a full-service marina, with accommodations to suit all pocketbooks.
