Spion Kop Track

South Molle Island, Whitsunday Area

If you visit South Molle Island you should make time to walk some or all of the Spion Kop Track. This is one of the most scenic Whitsunday trails and you'll be rewarded with stunning vistas, from the saddle of the mountain to when you reach the lookout. Enjoy the magic 360-degree view.

The Spion Kop Track is part of the Whitsundays Ngaro Sea Trail and signs guide walkers through the island's history. There are over 11-kilometres of track and you can walk from Bauer Bay or Sandy Bay up to Mount Jeffreys. Allow at least four-hours to complete or explore a section of the trail. Enjoy the natural habitat of the island including grasslands, rain and eucalypt forests, white sandy beaches, rocky outcrops and a variety of vegetation and wildlife.

The track passes the remnants of an ancient Ngaro stone quarry where you'll see shattered rock high on the hillside and spilling down toward the sea. The trail is of moderate grade and suitable for walking or mountain-bike riding.
