Paddle Bay Track and Campsite

Shute Harbour, Whitsunday Area

Paddle Bay Track and camp site are located on South Molle Island within Molle Islands National Park. White sandy beaches, pockets of rainforest and pale blue waters make these picturesque inshore islands a wildlife refuge and a scenic retreat for nature lovers. Open eucalypt forests clothe the hillsides, rainforest grows in sheltered gullies and grasslands cover the more exposed slopes.

The 2.2 kilometre return walking track winds down to a beach of coral fragments and continues along the beach away from the resort. Access the track from Bauer Bay beach. A picnic area overlooks Daydream, Mid and North Molle islands. At low tide you can walk to Mid Molle Island - access is restricted to the two-hour period before and after low tide. Check tides before setting out. Allow one hour to complete this walk of an easy grade.
