Islands

Unleash your inner Robinson Crusoe in the secluded Brampton National Park and South Cumberland Islands Group off the coast of Mackay.

Ahoy, boaties

  • Join a charter boat and learn to spearfish and troll for Spanish mackerel or skipper your own vessel to the Newry or Smith Islands group and pitch a tent under the stars. 
  • Drop anchor at Refuge Bay on Scawfell Island – the largest of the South Cumberland Islands – for epic reef snorkelling straight from the beach.

Animal spotting

  • Hike within the blue gum forests of Brampton Island, keeping an eye out for koalas along the southern entrance to the Whitsunday Passage, and view flatback and green turtles nesting and hatching on nearby Carlisle Island.
  • Unzip your tent to watch playful whales gliding past your own Great Barrier Reef paradise on Keswick Island, discover hidden bays and marvel at swarms of stunning butterflies and birds.
