Great view towards the islands. Even if you do not want to enter a boat. The scenic view is just fantastic.

I read in the Whitsunday Times that the owner was closing the premises about 3 weeks ago. When all the island ferries moved from Shute Harbour and Abel Point Marina to Port of Airlie the Shute Harbour wharfs had very little use. Back issues of the Times would confirm this.

Beautiful place, great view on islands, fresh air. You can go for some great walk around this point. We enjoyed the mount rooper walk, and the coral beach walk

Very nice spot, make sure you bring your camera! Nice view, only downside is you have to pay for parking.

Nothing to see here unless you want to launch a boat/get on a boat and go fishing. No shops. Seemed dead. Airlie beach has taken over with its marinas. Not worth a visit.

Shute Harbour was very quiet when we visited in October 2014. The views from the top of the hill overlooking the bay were attractive although the harbour itself is focussed around the port and a small beach.

A 90 minute flight over the Whitsundays and the Great Barrier Reef is a great way to start your Whitsunday adventures.

We caught the local bus service to Shute Harbour (15 min bus ride), just to have a look... apart from taking a couple of photos from the top of the hill of the water view there is NOTHING else worth seeing. As now most of the larger boats leave from the Port of Airlie there is absolutely nothing open. We... More
