Located in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef, Daydream Island is a paradise of sandy beaches, crystalline seas and stunning rainforest landscapes. It also boasts a relaxed bar scene featuring superb live music and cocktails.
Daydream Island is a fantastic place to experience marine life, with more than 140 species of fish and 82 species of coral in the coral lagoons. Feed the fish with resident marine biologists or take a night tour to learn more about the nocturnal reef. A walk through the rainforest is a great chance to see native flowers and birds like kookaburras and cockatoos.
On Whitehaven Beach or Mermaids Beach, you can play tennis and volleyball or try out windsurfing, jet skiing and water polo. Sit back and watch a movie under the stars in the open-air cinema, try the hydrotherapy treatments at the Rejuvenation Spa or indulge in a scenic helicopter flight for a bird’s-eye view of the reefs.
Daydream Island is in the middle of the Whitsunday Islands, conveniently located just five kilometres from the mainland. It’s a 30-minute ferry ride from Great Barrier Reef Airport or a 30-minute ferry ride and 30-minute coach journey from Proserpine Airport.
