Location Information:



By Air

You can fly into two airports, one is on Hamilton Island (HTI) and the other the Whitsunday Coast (PPP). Both have flights coming in from major cities, but Hamilton Island is probably the best way to get to Daydream Island as guests will only need to catch a ferry to Daydream as supposed to have to catch a bus to Airlie Beach and then a ferry to the island.

From Hamilton Island Airport (HTI), Cruise Whitsundays has ferry services that meet flights and is a 30-40 minutes trip.

From Whitsunday Coast Airport (PPP), Cruise Whitsundays offers a connecting transfer from the airport to Daydream with a 30 minute bus trip to Airlie Beach plus a 30 minute ferry transfer to the Island.
