Hill Inlet Lookout Whitsundays

One of the most magical spots, not only in the Whitsundays, but in the world.

Located at the northern end of Whitehaven Beach on Whitsunday Island, Hill Inlet is one of the jewels of the Australian landscape.
No two visits to Hill Inlet are the same. As the tide flows, so does the sand, capturing swirling patterns in the turquoise waters.
Views of the Inlet are some of the most frequently uploaded photos to Instagram.

Access to Hill Inlet is by boat only

Hill Inlet Lookout is located on Whitsunday Island, with access from Tongue Bay.

Each of our overnight and day experiences (weather and tide permitting) will plan a visit to Hill Inlet Lookout as part of the tour.

The lookout is a short uphill bushwalk. This walk is relativity easy and suitable for all ages. Our experienced crew will guide you to the lookout and provide you with an interpretative talk. Keep an eye out for the local goanna’s, birds, and other animals along the way.

As you approach, the track opens up ahead of you to an impressive view of Whitehaven Beach, islands, and the ocean beyond. The newly redesigned platforms allow a great 180-degree vantage point for all. Low tide is a great time to reach the lookout, our skippers will plan your trip around this time to maximise the view.
Hill Inlet won’t disappoint!
