Long Island is close to the mainland and one of the prettiest Whitsunday Islands. The Island is a national park with 13 kilometres of graded walking tracks across the Island, leading to beautiful secluded beaches and dense bush areas. There are three established resorts on the Island, Palm Bay Hideaway, Club Crocodile Long Island and Whitsunday Wilderness Lodge.
Palm Bay Hideaway has been designed to maintain the character of the national park. It caters for a small number of guests in self-contained cabins and Melanesian bures, built at the edge of the beach under towering palm trees.
The Club Crocodile resort, situated in Happy Bay, offers a casual but stylish atmosphere for guests to compliment the natural attractions of the Island and caters principally for couples.
On South Long Island, Whitsunday Wilderness Lodge offers seclusion on a 4 hectare site in simple but well appointed cabins. Originally Port Molle, unromantically renamed by explorer Matthew Flinders, Long Island is just that – 11 kilometres long and no more than 1.5 kilometres wide. Palm and Happy Bay are the nearest safe anchorages to Shute Harbour and therefore a popular spot for yachties. Escape to Queensland?s tropical islands…
