Hill Inlet, Whitsunday Island

Pure-white sands and vibrant blue waters make Hill Inlet one of the most visited tourist spots in the area. The inlet is located at the northern end of Whitehaven Beach, part of the Whitsunday Islands National Park. Best viewed from the lookout at Tongue Point, the inlet's white sands and blue waters blend seamlessly to create a sight most visitors describe as nothing short of breathtaking. You can take a boat to Tongue Bay and then make the short uphill walk to the point's lookout, but try to be there when the tide is low to experience this unusual fusion of colors. For those preferring a view from high above, helicopter and seaplane tours are also available.

  • The climb to get to the point almost kills someone who has no sports practice, like me. Steep climb with many stairs. But, when dhega to the top, you will be reborn. Beautiful. The best is that you continue to camnhada, down and gets to the most beautiful beach in the world. Whitehaven beach.

  • I made a half-day trip with explore Hamilton Island. A Traumcrew, very helpful and very nice. The climb up the Hill of the inlet is not without. Especially at high air humidity. In addition to them enough water with. Very strenuous for inexperienced users, and like me, with more weight on the body. But above you will be rewarded with a great view. Therefore, the tour is only to recommend.

  • Magnificent views of this place. Watching this scenic beautiful place gives a great feeling which cannot be appropriately described in words. Green pastures and the river water flowing downstream is just amazing.
  • This is one of the best looking places I've seen in my entire life! Truly incredible scenery you have to see to believe, the photos I've uploaded do not do it justice. I recommend this to anyone travelling through the Whitsundays😁🙌💯
