Long Island is one of the most beautiful Whitsunday Islands. It is the closest island to the mainland, and as suggested by the name, is 9km long while only being 400m wide at its widest point! The Island is a national park with 17 kilometres of wonderful walking trails that will take you to many superb beauty spots around the island. The island has areas of beautiful rain forest as well as secluded bays and beaches.

Guests can get to Long Island by ferry from Hamilton Island, Shute harbour or Able Point marina in Airlie beach.
