Hook Island

Hook Island, in the Whitsundays, is a rugged island with beautiful bays that offer excellent snorkelling and scuba diving. The island is the second largest in the Whitsunday group at 58 square kilometres in size.

The diversity of coral in the fringing reefs of the Great Barrier Reef on the northern shore offer excellent opportunities for snorkelling and diving. Bays along the northern coast of Hook Island to visit are Butterfly Bay, Maureen's Cove, Luncheon Bay, Manta Ray Bay, The Woodpile and the Pinnacles. Many of the overnight yacht trips will stop for snorkelling or scuba diving at Hook Island if the conditions are ideal, as will some of the day trips.

Hook Island is mostly national park and boasts several safe yacht anchorages and deserted island campsites. On the northern side, camp at Steen's Beach or Maureen's Cove or anchor at Maureen's Cove or Butterfly Bay. On the eastern side you will find the north-facing Crayfish Beach with a campsite. On the western side, you will find Stonehaven Anchorage which is popular with boaties to anchor overnight. On the south side, you will find the magnificent, five kilometre-long, fjord-like inlets of Nara and Macona. Both are ideal overnight anchorages in almost any conditions, and there is a campsite just inside Macona Inlet at Curlew Beach.

Aboriginal cave shelters can be found on Hook Island and a walking track leads to one such shelter in Nara Inlet where you can view Aboriginal rock paintings.

The old Hook Island Wilderness Resort and underwater observatory are in caretaker mode until 30 June 2013 and are not open to day or overnight visitors during this time.
