Airlie Beach to Cape Gloucester

Multiple Locations

Head to Cape Gloucester, one of the favourite spots where the locals like to spend a day. With stunning views of the Coral Sea, a choice of sandy beaches, secluded coves and palm trees to lean against, you will soak up this picturesque coastal environment. Take a picnic or stop off at Hydeaway Bay or the Dingo Beach pub or one of the small resorts dotted along the beach at Cape Gloucester.

Allow one hour to drive all the way to the end of the road and a whole day to enjoy beachcombing, swimming, fishing and a long lazy lunch. You will see one of the best coastal views in Australia from "Oh My God' hill as you head from Hydeaway Bay to Cape Gloucester.

Mainland - 50 kilometres north from Airlie Beach.

Full itinerary

From the top of Gloucester Avenue, at the end of the cul-de-sac, follow the dirt road along the coastline over "Oh My God Hill" and other quirkily named geographical features. The red ochre colour of the dirt road contrasts beautifully against the vivid aqua hues of the ocean, making for some excellent photographic opportunities.
There are two small eco resorts on the beachfront here at Cape Gloucester, the first of which is Montes Reef Resort, the second, Cape Gloucester Eco Resort. Both are open for lunch and have cabin-style accommodation available.
Note: while this is a dirt road, it is suitable for normal vehicles most of the time. After heavy rain, the road can become corrugated, and driving at a slow pace with caution is advised.

This six kilometre stretch of road takes you from sparse farmland into the beachside hamlet of Hydeaway Bay, where all house either front the beach or have a view of it from the hill. You will find little pathways to the beach, between the houses, spread out along this beachside stretch of road if you are ready for a swim already.

A caravan park just on the outskirts, before you reach the beach, caters to campers and caravanners.
Hydeaway Bay Drive turns into Gloucester Avenue along the beachfront. Continue along until you reach the cul-de-sac at the top of the rise.
