Airlie Beach - South Molle Island
Welcome to the Whitsundays! Your camping adventure begins at Airlie Beach, where you’ll meet up with your local leader and fellow travellers. From here, jump aboard a water taxi and cruise across to South Molle Island. This place is a real treat for the eyes, coloured with dense rainforest, a flurry of birds and bright blue waters wherever you look. Set up camp for the night in an isolated spot in Paddle Bay or Sandy Bay, then get out and enjoy all this incredible island has to offer. Perhaps head down to the beach east of your campsite and hit the walking trails that lead onto spectacular lookout points. You may like to take a swim in the crystal-clear ocean or maybe jump in a kayak to explore your surroundings. Finish the day with a drink in hand and watch a sunset that’s sure to take your breath away, then get to know your new travel buddies over dinner.
This morning you’ll hop aboard another water taxi and transfer to Hook Island, the second largest in the Whitsunday group. Here you’ll find Crayfish Beach, your home for the next two nights, tucked away on the eastern side of the island in Mackerel Bay. You’ll be greeted by the mountains guarding a beautiful sweep of golden sand and glittering turquoise waters, but look beneath the surface and discover something even more magical – this sheltered spot has some of the best coral cover in all the Whitsundays, with fringing reefs sprawling out across the bay. Enjoy two days in this mecca for snorkellers and water lovers, swimming, exploring and kayaking to the offshore islands.
Wake up and embrace another day in this little slice of paradise. The day is yours to tick off any activities you may not have had time for yesterday, or perhaps you’d prefer to stretch out on the beach and relax among your glorious surroundings.
Say goodbye to Crayfish Beach this morning and catch a water taxi to Whitehaven Beach, the jewel in the crown of the Whitsundays. Famed for its unbelievable white sand beaches and dazzling blue waters, the beach is popular with day trippers who hop across from the mainland, but once they head home for the day, the place is left to the campers. You may like to take a walk up to an amazing lookout to get a full picture of the area, visit the gorgeous Chance bay or stroll the whole 7km to the northern end of the beach where you’ll find the unique swirling sands of Hill Inlet (although you’ll need a kayak to cross the inlet itself). Settle in for a night of camping among one of Australia’s most magnificent landscapes.
It’s time to leave the Whitsunday Islands behind and transfer back to Airlie Beach on the mainland, where on arrival your adventure will come to an end.
