“Great ride in peaceful scenery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2014

We rode our mountain bikes from the Brandy Creek end to Repulse Creek (8.3km one way) and back & down to Wompoo Creek (1.2km track off the side). Was great flowing track. Watch out for hikers & call out if necessary. Great little creeks and nice scenery

“supberb views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

The walk itself isn't very long or hard work but the view at the top is still amazing! The Whitsundays are beautiful from ground level but the great views from the top of the hill made it look even better!

“Tough climb but well worth the effort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

It's 430 metres straght up to the top of Whitsunday Peak but do not let that deter the reasonably fit. The 2.5 km trail is well marked with rocks used to form steps in the steeper parts of the track. About 400 m short of the summit is an open area with some views but the last slog to the top makes all the effort worthwhile.

Stunning! North towards Hayman, west to the mainland, south to Hamilton and beyond, the views are breathtaking. Take care if the rocks are wet because it could lead to a very fast and damaging trip straight down. On the inland side of the viewing rock there is a small path through the bush for some 70 m that gives views of the east coast and glimpses of Whitehaven Beach.

Access to the track is from the southern beach at Cid Harbour near the toilets and shelter shed. Allow 2 hours for the return trip although one amazon who shot past our group did it in 40 minutes. Why?

This is a must for those cruising the Whitsundays.
