White on Whitehaven Long Lunch Returns in 2023

White on Whitehaven Long Lunch Returns in 2023


The Whitsundays’ ultimate bucket list event, White on Whitehaven Long Lunch by Fish D’vine, is back in September and tickets are on sale now.

Due to the popular demand of this unique dining experience, the 2023 event will run over three days from September 8 – 10, with ticket buyers able to purchase for their preferred day to attend. The event is held on iconic Whitehaven Beach, which means tickets are strictly limited, people are urged to make purchasing tickets a priority, so they don’t miss out.

The White on Whitehaven Long Lunch offers a truly bespoke experience that encapsulates the very essence of The Whitsundays. Donning your best white attire, your day starts in the tropical resort town of Airlie Beach, where you’ll cruise on the azure blue waters of the Coral Sea, taking in the beauty of the Whitsunday Islands.

Upon arrival you will be handed a glass of Champagne as you step onto the soft silica sands of Whitehaven Beach, while being serenaded by the roving beach band. Freshly shucked oysters and salmon sashimi will do the rounds on the beach, to compliment your Champagne and views. A gourmet buffet lunch of fresh seafood, premium BBQ’d meats and delectable salads will be served on white linen tables under a white marquee to complete the theme.

The ticket price includes canapes, a buffet seafood lunch and mouth-watering desserts prepared on the beach by Fish D’vine and a drink package of Laurenti Champagne, premium Australian wines and national and international beers, Grainshaker and Diablo cocktails, bottled water and soft drink.

After lunch, spend the afternoon relaxing in the sublime blue water, soaking up the sun with newfound friends, or getting competitive in the beach limbo before departing on the leisurely cruise back to the mainland.

Fish D’vine co-owner Kevin Collins said he was thrilled to host the ultimate Queensland luncheon experience again and urged people to secure their tickets as they are already selling fast.

“The 2022 event saw three days of stunning Whitsundays Spring weather attracting over 700 guests from around the country. White on Whitehaven is the only Whitehaven Beach long lunch event open to the public and many guests have rebooked to join us again this year. The Saturday is 50% sold already, so don’t delay as this year’s event is sure to be a sell-out.” Mr Collins said.

Tourism Whitsundays Chief Executive Officer, Rick Hamilton believes this year’s White on Whitehaven Long Lunch by Fish D’vine will be another great success for Fish D’vine and The Whitsundays.

“The White on Whitehaven Long Lunch by Fish D’vine is one of the most anticipated events in the region’s jampacked events calendar. People have returned year after year from our key markets of Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne to enjoy the remarkable experience.

"Events in The Whitsundays play a large role in attracting repeat visitation to the region and help to promote the diverse experiences available to visitors. White on Whitehaven is fast becoming one of the most sought-after events on our calendar, with the winning combination of iconic Whitehaven Beach, fresh locally sourced seafood and Laurenti Champagne, it’s not hard to see why,” said Mr Hamilton.

Tickets for this iconic event are $499 per person and include:

Air-conditioned transfers from Port of Airlie to Whitehaven Beach

Champagne, freshly shucked oysters, salmon sashimi and canapes on arrival

Gourmet buffet lunch of fresh seafood, meats and salads

Dessert Platters

Laurenti Champagne, Australian wines, premium beers, Grainshaker and Diablo cocktails and soft drink

Live acoustic entertainment by nationally acclaimed 6-piece band The Natural Culture.

Amazing Penthouse with Whitsundays lifestyle
The view from the apartment is absolutely stunning. The apartment itself is also very well presented, clean, spacious, and luxurious. The four of us enjoyed our time at the apartment and it would easily accommodate 4-6 guests. Communication was simple and instructions were clear. It is worth noting that the proximity from the city centre isnt far, and the walk to and from the apartment can be done, but the hill climb on the way back up is a big one (our 60 yo mother was able to do it). Though this hill climb offers spectacular views over the bay and means you are out of the hustle and bustle.

Luxury Airlie Beach Home with Panoramic Ocean Views
We had an absolutely amazing time. The house is beautifully designed and spacious. The view from the living room and outdoor area is absolutely breath taking and private making you feel like you have your own slice of paradise. We loved this location as it felt very central with a short drive to Airlie beach, delicious restaurants and all the many attractions and activities the Whitsunday has to offer.

Amazing Penthouse with Whitsundays lifestyle
It was a beautifully presented and clean place to stay with amazing views. The roof top terrace with your own pool and outdoor area was definitely a stand out! So quiet and had everything we needed. I loved waking up and walking out to look all over Airlie Beach. Will be staying here again for sure.

Shutehaven Beach House with Ocean Views.
We had the most wonderful stay in Shutehaven! The house was beyond gorgeous, decorated beautifully, and had everything we needed for a 9 night stay. We could not stop talking the whole stay about how beautiful the house and views were. The kitchen was well stocked with everything you could need for cooking big meals to eat on the balconies with the most beautiful views you could ever hope for. The beds were very comfy and the pool was fantastic. Whitsunday Vacations were more than fantastic with communication and organised all the baby items we needed for my 11 month old. They organised an early check in and were very attentive when it came to communication and a home visit regarding a potential cyclone. The owner clearly takes pride in her home and it shows. As Canadians, we loved the little Canada magnet on the fridge :) Thank you for having us, we can't wait to stay here again in the future. If you're thinking about booking here, don't think twice!

"High Tide" - Whitsundays Beachfront Accommodation
High Tide is an awesome place for a vacation. Our host Paul was very welcoming and helpful in showing us around the house. Our only suggestion is to make sure all air cons are in working condition specially if you are visiting in the hot summer months of Jan. We had the air con in the dining and kitchen not working and it got quite hot in that area. Apart from that it’s a very special place with spectacular views and a lovely pool. The rooms are very well equipped with both air cons and fans and the cupboards have good storage space. We enjoyed making breakfast and dinners in the fully equipped kitchen and the washing machine and dryer also were put to good use. The lounge areas are perfect to bring the whole family together in one place. And the infinity pool was hard to get the kids out of.All in all we enjoyed our stay at high tide and left with a very heavy heart.

Relax & Daydream at 2 Elementa
We had an incredible stay at Elementa. We stayed 4 nights in total and were very sad to leave come the end of the trip.It is rare that photos undersell the breathtaking views, and this is one of those places.It was a very peaceful stay, the pool we pretty much had to ourselves most of the time. The views from the rooms and balconies were incredible.In terms of value for money, this place is also very much worth the stay! We highly recommend!
