Whitsundays voted top place to ‘get lost’

The list, compiled by Frommer’s travel writers and editors, features destinations across the world which are said to be the next big things for travellers in 2012.

    Awesome news, that should help put the Whitsundays back on the map. Of course the locals and our agents have known all along that the islands are the best place in the world to get lost amongst.
