Description

The Whitsunday Peak track is located on Whitsunday Island, within Whitsunday Islands National Park. Dotting the scenic aquamarine waters, these hilly islands were formed when changing sea levels drowned a mainland mountain range. The Whitsunday reefs have outstanding coral cover and variety. Whitsunday Island supports a population of unadorned rock-wallabies. From May to September the Whitsundays are an important calving ground for migrating humpback whales.

Accessed from Sawmill Beach in Cid Harbour, the five kilometre return Whitsunday Peak track offers a great getaway from the busy beaches. Climb through diverse vegetation, from rainforest gullies to windblown heaths, and be rewarded with spectacular vistas on the 'roof of the Whitsundays'. Walk safely: this track is steep and physically demanding-please consider your fitness and walking experience carefully before setting out. Allow four hours to complete this track of a difficult grade.
