Here’s why you will love exploring the the Whitsunday Islands aboard the Cruise Whitsundays - Ultimate Whitehaven Beach Hike, Hill Inlet and Lookout Day Tour

Spend the whole day experiencing the magic of Whitsunday Island- home to the world-famous Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet. This day cruise offers the most time on the island and the longest permit to Whitehaven Beach than any other tour.

Whitehaven Beach is frequently voted top ten in Australia if not the world! This 7km stretch of sand is made up of 98% pure silica leaving it breathtakingly white and soft. Surrounded by sparkling turquoise waters and contrasting green forest, it is clear why this is the most photographed beach in Australia.

Your day will consist of informative hikes from the northern end of Whitehaven up to the stunning Hill Inlet Lookout and beyond, and luxurious indulgence at the southern, less frequented, end of the beach. There will be water, beach shades, games, and complimentary tea and coffee available on your tour. The crew will also serve up a gourmet burger and salads bar right on the beach. There will also be cold drinks available for your purchase.

Please note: Whitsunday Island is an uninhabited island and as such does not contain any shops or cafes. There are also only a few toilets. Please prepare accordingly.


Cruise Whitsundays - Ultimate Whitehaven Beach Hike,
Hill Inlet and Lookout Tour Plan

1. You will be transferred by one of the Cruise Whitsundays vessels to the southern end of Whitehaven Beach for the beginning of your tour. The crew will advise you of your day itinerary- all variable based on weather conditions.

2. Enjoy a leisurely cruise in the smaller Whitehaven based vessel. This will cover the full length of Whitehaven Beach and across Hill Inlet to the landing point. Enjoy a guided bushwalk including informative commentary about the history of the island and the traditional owners- the Ngaro people. Don’t forget your camera as you will want to capture the view from the top!

3. Your day will also feature walks on the Solway Circuit and to Chance Bay. Your guide will provide you with start times for these walks on the day. Solway Circuit Lookout is an approximately 30 minute walk at a steady pace. It offers incredible flora and fauna and beautiful views out over the Solway Passage and out to Pentecost and Haslewood Islands. Chance Bay is a leisurely 90 minutes return option through the rainforest to this stunning secluded beach. You will have time to spend on this beach before your return.

4. Full day guests will join the two half day tours available with an exclusive guide on attendance throughout the day.

Please Note: This is a sample tour plan; your itinerary is based on the weather and tidal conditions experienced at the time of travel.
