There are many beautiful places to walk in the Whitsundays with ancient flora and fauna and some unique indigenous wildlife, such as the Proserpine Rock Wallaby.

Some walks can be self-guided such as Passage Peak, or take a guided tour to Honeyeater Lookout or through the Conway National Park. Hill Inlet Lookout on Whitehaven Beach forms part of a number of guided tours.

These are just some of the many and varied walks on offer.

Bicentennial Walkway

The Bicentennial Walkway is an approximately 4km walk starting at Cannonvale Beach. The walk winds its way past the Volunteer Marina Rescue Centre, along Shingley Beach, through Abell Point Marina past Coral Sea Resort through to the Airlie Beach Lagoon. It’s an easy walk with so much to see along the way. Grab a coffee from Fat Frog Café at Cannonvale Beach to start your enjoyable stroll along the Bicentennial Walkway and end with dip in the Airlie Beach Lagoon.

Honeyeater Lookout

The entrance to the Honeyeater Lookout is in Kara Crescent, just behind Airlie Beach Main Street. Follow the trail up – it is quite steep to start – but you will be rewarded with some stunning views of the mainland and out to the islands. Especially rewarding in the cool of the morning when the air is clear and the views are crisp. 

Conway Circuit

Conway National Park is a rainforest wonder. You can hike or bike there choosing from the different tracks depending on your level of expertise. The Conway Circuit is a three-day, two-night adventure perfect for the thrill seekers and nature lovers.

North Head Lighthouse, Bowen

There is a restored, 150-year-old lighthouse off the coast of Bowen and it is possible to walk out to the lighthouse with the year's lowest daytime tides, a fantastic opportunity to spot beautiful sea life in the shallows.

Whitehaven Beach, Whitsunday Island                      

There are two walks on Whitehaven - one at the Southern End, and one to the lookout over Hill Inlet at the Northern End. One or both of these can be accessed by a number of tours to Whitehaven Beach.

Passage Peak, Hamilton Island

Hamilton Island is accessible to day visitors – with transfers by Cruise Whitsundays – where you can walk to Passage Peak, self-guided. The walk is best done early morning or late afternoon and promises glimpses of some of the island’s varied wildlife.
