    Wedding ceremony.

    by Steve-H Updated Oct 3, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: During the simple ceremony Amanda read a poem for us, LOVE`S PHILOSOPHY by Percy Bysshe Shelley.

    The fountains mingle with the river,
    And the rivers with the sea,
    The winds of heaven mix forever
    With a sweet emotion.

    Nothing in the world is single,
    All things by a law divine
    In on another`s being mingle
    Why not i with thine?

    See the mountains kiss high heaven,
    And the waves clasp one another,
    No sister flower would be forgiven
    If it disdained its brother,
    And the sunlight clasps the earth,
    And the moonbeams kiss the sea
    And what are all these kissings worth
    If thou kiss not me?

    Amanda reads the poem.

    Dinner on the beach.

    by Steve-H Updated Jul 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Whitsunday Island is a national park so no camping or bonfires on the beach. On Whitehaven Beach there are some barbeques under the trees for the organised trips to use, the boat crews know where they are and they cook up some great food too.After we got hitched on the beach we retreated to the shade and tucked in. Don`t be surprised to if the odd goanna turns up to beg for scraps.

    Our first meal as man & wife.

    Whitehaven Beach

    by CandS Updated Jul 20, 2003

    Favorite thing: Whitehaven Beach is an amazing place!!! We anchored there one night and spent a lot of time on the beach... The beach stretches six kms and is pure white silica sand. Gorgeous!!

    You will find tours to Whitehaven Beach (on Whitsunday Island) from almost everywhere...it is a very popular tourist destination. The beach is so long that you won't have to share your area with many others even on a busy day.

    Sunset and Champagne.

    by Steve-H Written May 6, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: A romantic way to spend an evening and only $43 a head is the sunset champagne cruise aboard the Banana Winds. Sailing from Abel Point Harbour the cruise lasts between 2 to 3 hours during which some food will be served and there is an unlimited supply of bubbly.

    alisonr's General Tip

    by alisonr Written Sep 15, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fondest memory: This is the most interesting thing that struck me about this part of the world - the difference in height between the high and log tides! It is unreal!
    When the tide went out, you could walk out for hundreds of meters and find lots of little sea creatures in the water pools!
    You can see from the photos the difference!

    Unexpected guests.

    by Steve-H Written Jul 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: This is one of the Goannas that you may encounter on Whitsunday Island, about 3 feet long, apparently it`s one of the smaller ones.

    You can eat them but they taste like s**t
