Whitsundays from the sky

The Whitsundays were discovered by Captain James Cook in 1770 on the 7th Sunday after Easter on “Whitsun,” giving way to their name and the influence of the modern world. The Whitsundays are made up of 74 Islands on the tropical coast of Queensland, right in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef.
