Brampton Island

Sitting at the southern entrance of the Whitsunday Passage, Brampton Island is a turquoise water, white sand tropical island haven. Brampton Island is 32 kilometres north-east of Mackay and 50 kilometres south of Hamilton Island. You can access both Brampton and Carlisle islands by private boat.

Almost entirely National Park, Brampton has seven glorious beaches and its own coral reef. The passage in-between Brampton and Carlisle Islands is known as the "Fishbowl" and is a renowned snorkelling area, where reef sharks, turtles and a kaleidoscope of tropical fish can be witnessed.

Brampton Island has an abundance of native bush and wildlife, including kangaroos and is an important turtle rookery. Explore the island on a leisurely bushwalk through the National Park from the open eucalypt forest on ridges and sheltered slopes to the dense vine forest in gullies and valleys.

Brampton Peak is the island's highest point and rises to 214 metres above sea level. The walk from the resort site to Brampton Peak is steep in places, but panoramic views of the mainland and Carlisle Island's steep forested slopes is the reward. Enjoy the tranquillity of nature and rest at one of the bench seats along the way.

There are secluded picnic areas at Brampton's Western Bay and Dinghy Bay West, all have picnic tables and a toilet.
