Brampton Island is a small, relaxed, intimate resort washed by tepid, inviting seas and ringed with shining, sandy, semi-secluded beaches. Natural beauty abounds, in the water and on the land.
Picture an idyllic island resort set in a spectacular national park. Add to that image seven beautiful sandy beaches with a coral reef off the main beach waiting to be explored.
Combine this with the intimacy of accommodation nestled amidst lush landscaped gardens, stunning salt water and fresh water pools to laze by and a host of activities to choose from and you have just a few of the reasons why Brampton Island is such a special place to begin a new life together or to re-affirm your love. When all of this is available at extremely affordable prices it is little wonder that Brampton Island has become the perennial favorite for lovers.
Just a twelve minute scenic flight, or an easy launch trip from Mackay on Queensland’s central coast, Brampton Island covers 7.7 kilometres and is located at the entrance of the Whitsunday passage. This beautiful island allows you to be as active or as relaxed as you choose.
Each day can be filled with a new experience; strolling through the pristine National Park, soaking up the sun at poolside, enjoying a beach picnic in a secluded corner of any one of the seven beaches or taking advantage of the huge range of land and water based activities including catamaran sailing and water skiing.
A range of specialist trips are available from cruises and fishing charters, to a memorable seaplane adventure to Hardy Reef, beginning with a 35-minute scenic flight over the Whitsunday islands before touching down at a pontoon to experience the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef first-hand by snorkeling or scuba-diving.
Each meal is a gourmet adventure on Brampton with the Carlisle Restaurant offering hearty cooked breakfasts, tempting buffet lunches and mouth-watering a la carte dinner specialties. Adding variety to this selection are weekly barbecues and sumptuous seafood smorgasbords and carveries prepared by a talented team of
chefs and designed to tempt even the most jaded palate.
For a romantic dinner for two, succulent seafood platters are available to enjoy by the pool, or on your own private balcony.
At close of day the choice is yours…a romantic moonlight stroll under the stars before retiring to your own private haven, or perhaps a night of fun partying with fellow guests and staff.
