Tough hike but with amazing lookouts over Whitsundays

This is a great hike but rather tough. The distance between Airlie Beach and the lookout points is pretty long so will need a full day to visit all three of the lookouts. Be... read more

This is a great hike but rather tough. The distance between Airlie Beach and the lookout points is pretty long so will need a full day to visit all three of the lookouts. Be prepared to go uphill for few kilometres to start off and there are plenty of further climbs on the way. But once you get to the... More

This walk is not for the unfit. My partner and i thought this walk was an easy incline and didn't really prepare the gradient that we were faced with. Once achieved the uphill walk though the views are outstanding. Can see almost all the whitsunday islands. Absolutely beautiful. The scenery on the walk is also amazing. Make sure you take... More

This is a great hike. You can do a couple of short hikes or take a few days to do the whole thing. As the seasons change you see different flora and fauna.

The whole walk is about 27 km long (with campsites along the way) but you can do a circuit starting at the Airlie Beach end of 8.2 km to Honeyeater lookout. Note that the way up is very steep so keep that in mind for the way down if you have knee issues! Nice natural scenery and note there are... More

This coastal trail is perfect. The views are widely varied and superb. There is a mix of sun and shade and numerous rest places if needed.

My wife and I did a walk most days, this was by far the best. Very challenging in place for a couple of near 60 year olds but very satisfying. We went to the Honeyeater lookout and were rewarded with magnifivent views across Airlie Beach. It was an 8.2km return walk and the notice board at the beginning said it... More

A very beautiful walk with varied vegetation. The walk is very steep, but the scenery is worth the effort. Unfortunately I walked on a wet day, so did not enjoy any views from the Honeyeater lookout, however I thoroughly enjoyed the walk. Easy to get to from Airlie accommodation.
