Description

Solway Circuit track is located on Whitsunday Island within the Whitsunday Islands National Park. Whitsunday Island's Whitehaven Beach is world-renowned for its pure white silica sand and crystal-clear water. The surrounding fringing reefs contain an outstanding variety of corals. Dotting the scenic aquamarine waters, these hilly islands were formed when changing sea levels drowned a mainland mountain range.

Starting from Whitehaven Beach, this one-way circuit winds its way uphill to a natural rock platform-giving spectacular views over Solway Passage and surrounding islands. Trackside information gives walkers an insight into Whitehaven's slowly changing landscape. The track is a 1.2 kilometre return walk of a moderate grade. Allow 40 minutes to enjoy this circuit.

All the walks on Whitsunday Island are part of the Whitsunday Ngaro Sea Trail.
