The Whitsundays, Queensland.
25°C Sunny Sunny

Hydeaway Bay and its sister town Dingo Beach are situated at the top end of The Whitsundays, accessible by road 45 minutes north of Airlie Beach. Quiet and secluded, these little hamlets are perfect for those seeking rest and relaxation on long, sandy beaches with hardly another soul in sight. 

With endless horizons and picturesque water views dotted with islands, Hydeaway Bay and Dingo Beach are perfect for long lazy days spent beachcombing or exploring the calm bays in a kayak or Stand-Up-Paddle Board. A well-known fishing destination, Dingo Beach boasts a tidal boat ramp and extensive parklands and barbeque facilities along the beach.

Travellers can stop for a bite to eat and a refreshing beverage at one of the two resorts at Cape Gloucester or the Dingo Beach pub. Accommodation in the area ranges from the caravan park and pub motel to private holiday homes of all styles and the two Cape Gloucester resorts. 

The road to the tiny township of Hydeaway Bay takes you through cattle country and some of the most spectacular coastal scenery on the mainland.

Comprising just a handful of houses and a caravan park, Hydeaway Bay is the perfect spot for getting away from it all and maybe casting a line off the beautiful, almost-empty beach.

Continue on just a few kilometres past the township and you will come to Gloucester Point, overlooking Shag Islet and Green Island. With its palm tree lined-beaches and sparkling water, it is an idyllic tropical escape.
