Its natural beauty and breathtaking Whitsunday scenery makes Lindeman Island one of the most spectacular tropical islands in Australia.
Complemented by temperate days and nights, Lindeman Island was one of the first Whitsunday islands to be developed. The resort on Lindeman Island is no longer operational, however a new island owner is currently planning the build of a luxury resort with an estimated completion date of 2021. Aboriginal people refer to Lindeman Island as Yara-kimba, the place of snapper-bream fish.
Consisting of mostly National Park, Lindeman Island is a bushwalking paradise. More than 20 kilometres of bushwalking tracks allow visitors to stroll through the aptly named Butterfly Valley, or climb Mt Oldfield, which rewards the climb with stunning views across Hamilton and Whitsunday Island.
Lindeman Island has seven beautiful beaches, with Gap Beach being favoured for snorkelling, with colourful reefs and abundant marine life near the shore. Dolphins can often be spotted from the shore throughout the year and Humpback whales between July to November. Birdwatchers will delight in more than 90 bird species that inhabit or visit the island.
A camping site is located near the north-west point of the island at Boat Port. Camping fees apply and bookings are essential. This quiet campsite with sandy beaches is backed by rainforest, and has a picnic table and toilet.
