True to its name Whitehaven Xpress is the perfect way to zip around the Whitsunday Islands on this exciting day trip.
Passengers will enjoy a relaxed 3 hours at the Southern end of the beach. A BBQ lunch is cooked on the beach, and lunch is served buffet style. The BBQ features a selection of steak, sausages and chilli burgers, or veggie burgers/fish for vegetarians, combined with a fresh garden salad and tropical fruit platter. The lunch area has picnic tables and plenty of shade. There is also plenty of time for a swim, sunbake, or a stroll up the beach.
Bushwalk to Hill Inlet Lookout
Passengers will enjoy a relaxed walk to the Hill Inlet lookout, via Tongue Bay. Hill Inlet is the jewel in the Whitsundays crown. The only way to see the amazing, swirling sand effect is from above. On Whitehaven Xpress you will take a leisurely walk to the lookout, and have ample time to take in, and photograph the amazing scenery. There are many beautiful beaches throughout the world, but there is only one Hill Inlet!
Bushwalk to Whitehaven Beach Lookout
Passengers will enjoy a short scenic walk to the Whitehaven Beach lookout. While being on Whitehaven is spectacular in itself, seeing the beach from a height give a whole new perspective and is arguably even more stunning!
