Daydream Island Resort Escape Day Cruises


Daydream Island Resort Escape Day Cruises, one of the premier resorts in the Whitsunday Islands, invites you to come and enjoy the many attractions of this fantastic island.

Daydream Village at the southern end of the island has been specially developed with day visitors in mind. It has all the facilities of an island resort and then some! Set around the swimming pool is a bakery, watersports & dive shop, and a souvenir boutique. There are tennis courts, a children’s playground, and the fantastic ‘Living Reef’ Coral Lagoon filled with colorful coral and fish life.

There’s lots of room to laze away the day poolside, on the lawns, or adjacent beach. Take a swim, stroll along Sunset Beach or see wallabies and endless bird life on the rainforest walk. The ‘Around Australia’ mini-golf course has to be the best in the world – definitely not just for the kids!

At lunchtime, you can make your own selection from ‘The Boathouse’ at the southern end or you can wander along to the Resort area and enjoy a two-course lunch poolside at Mermaids Restaurant. Looking for just a “taste” of Daydream so to speak then enjoy or fabulous lunch cruise. Guests dine at Mermaids whilst enjoying the views out across the Whitsundays.
