Hill Inlet Lookout Whitsundays
With its stunning view, Hill Inlet Lookout is one of the most photographed locations in the world. The second most in face, in all of Australia, and worth every snapshot. It is situated on the equally iconic Whitehaven Beach on Whitsunday Island, which is another favourite among both locals and visitors.
Hill Inlet Lookout provides an amazing view of Hill Inlet and Whitehaven Beach, which are situated below. The view of the swirling sands below are never the same twice and are one of nature's masterpieces. From the lookout you can also see a great view of the surrounding tropical islands as well as the stretches of aquq-coloured oceans and white sandy beaches.
Hill Inlet Lookout is located at a peak on Whitsunday Islands and requires a short bushwalk from the northern end of the island, near Tongue Point. The 1km turnaround walk provides an amazing and short walk where you can enjoy the native flora and fauna species. Your crew will point out all the amazing wildlife and plant species as you make your way up and down the track before reaching the infamous lookout point.
When at the lookout, you will get a fantastic panoramic view of the 7 kilometre stretch of silica sand below – the perfect photo opportunity. And the best time to access Hill Inlet Lookout is at low tide when the beach is really out of water and you can see the different colours of the water in the shallows.
