Whitsunday Clipper Race Carnival January 13 - 29

Drop anchor in The Whitsundays and greet the gutsiest sailors on the planet during their 40,000 nautical mile race around the world.


Airlie Beach cranks up its world-class reputation as Australia’s #1 sailing destination, stepping up as a host port for the Clipper Round the World Yacht Race in 2018, and putting on a party in tropical style! The two-week festival includes a rodeo by the sea and long lunch on iconic Whitehaven Beach.
