THERE are countless trails, tracks and beaches across the Whitsundays that your family or a group of friends can indulge in this holiday period.

You may find yourself on a secluded beach, pack a picnic to soak in the atmosphere, get the hiking boots on, or maybe throw in the swimwear and towel.

Here is a list of 5 places to explore.

Cedar Creek Falls, Conway National Park

A beautiful hidden oasis will greet you when you find the gorgeous waterfall that is Cedar Creek Falls.

Don't forget to bring your swimwear for this one as you can dip your toes into the emerald green swimming hole.

Horseshoe Bay Feel the warmth of the sun-drenched granite boulders as you take in your surroundings at Horseshoe Bay.

Gray's Bay, Bowen

Is one of the one of the few places on the East Coast where you can watch the sun set over the ocean.

So, take the time these holidays to do just that.

Find your perfect spot to sit and enjoy, or bring your SUP, kayak or canoe for coastal adventuring.
