Shopping The guide was updated:There are various excellent shopping areas along the Whitsunday Coast which can provide travellers with all they need from food supplies to souvenirs. There are also several markets held at the weekends which will be very useful if you’re looking for fresh produce.
In Cannonvale there is the mall Whitsunday Shopping Centre, which includes BiLos, Target Country, cafés and restaurants. It is a good place to stock up. There is also a post office together with banks and speciality shops, a modern and sophisticated centre.
