The Whitsundays are a short flight just shy of two hours north of Brisbane and even in the peak of winter will only get down to temperatures in the low twenties. 

‘We just spent the most incredible week sailing around the Whitsundays with my family, swimming with turtles, basking in as much sunshine as possible and living it up in nature,’ the beach lover wrote.  

Sarah’s video quickly racked up thousands of views and a string of comments from many Aussies pining to escape the icy chill plaguing many towns and cities south of the tropics this winter. 

‘So beautiful up there! The weather in Melbourne is definitely not the one at the moment,’ one viewer complained.
