Immerse yourself in island paradise at one of five resort islands. Settle into an island pace that suits you; the laidback budget-friendly Long Island Resort, family-centric Daydream or the barefoot luxury offered at Hayman. Choose Hamilton Island for all the trimmings including an island golf course, go-kart track and a range of accommodation from the pure indulgence of qualia to the family-friendly Reef Hotel with striking views over Catseye Beach.
The remaining islands form part of the Whitsunday Island National Park including Hook, Whitsunday and Molle group of islands and have amazing bushwalking tracks and camping sites for a more rugged experience.
Access to the islands is either by direct boat transfers, ferries from Airlie Beach, Shute Harbour or Hamilton Island marina or via a drop off from a day tour exploring the islands. Hamilton Island has its own airport access with direct flights available.
