Picture lying back on your beach towel on the deck of a luxury superyacht as the Whitsunday Coast and islands drift by. Youve got a cold drink in your hand. The weather is balmy, and theres a breeze blowing across the azure water.


Sounds just about perfect.


And any holiday should have plenty of time for exactly that. But its probably not the only thing you want to do if you are visiting one of the worlds most pristine ecological destinations. And youll almost certainly want to take up the opportunity to explore the largest marine national park, with its abundance of undersea and rainforest wonders.


Visiting the Whitsunday Islands isnt just about beaches. Many of Whitsunday Islands Luxe Charters’ guests are blown away by the sights and experiences they have on the scenic walks and nature hikes of this beautiful region.


That full diversity of experience is something you can get if you visit the Whitsunday Islands with us. But before you decide, let us take you through some of our, and our guests, favourite walks and hikes.

The Conway Circuit/ The Great Whitsunday Walk

The Conway Circuit provides walkers with some of the best elevations and views in the entire Whitsundays. There are too many stunning vistas to mention along the way, and every one of them will be worth framing on your wall or making your new phone back-ground once you return home.

 And it’s not just sweeping landscapes that take in the horizon with islands, white sand beaches and patches of rainforest that make for stunning photos. The many rock wallabies that make the areas surrounding this trail their home, as well as the striking blues of the native butterflies, all make for a pretty magical experience.

 The trail is 25 kilometres from end to end, so it can be covered by experienced and fit walkers in a couple of days, or you can just choose to do a short section of it as a day walk. There are campgrounds along the way to refuel and rest as well.

The Solway Circuit

For something that can be conquered in a much shorter time frame, the Solway Circuit track is a leisurely 2.4 kilometres. It’s accessible by boat or kayak, and the winding path takes you behind the iconic white sand of Whitehaven Beach to its midpoint overlooking the Solway Passage.

This inlet of water has been slowly carved by thousands of years of waves and tides and has left rocky outcrops and crystal clear aquamarine landscapes in its wake.

Hill Inlet Lookout

Hill Inlet is another favourite for those who don’t want to commit a whole day to a trek but who still want to view the surroundings from a higher vantage point. The lookout has been refurbished with sturdy wooden decking in recent years and gives those who venture up sweeping views of the apex of Tongue Bay and Hill Inlet itself.

The walk also benefits from signage and information about the traditional custodians of the land, the Ngaro People, as you make your way up to the lookout. The shifting sands, moved endlessly by the tide sweeping in and out of the bay, are a favourite with those who love to take photos, with the bay transforming depending on the time of day you are at the lookout.

Much More to Offer

If the options for Whitsunday Island scenic walks and hikes are a ‘menu’, then the three we’ve highlighted above are very much just the ‘entrée’ to that menu. 

Whether you are looking for a challenging trek, a couple of casual walks in between sailing or something in between, we can help. We’ve been putting together custom itineraries and sailing plans for our guests for years now. Our experienced, friendly team knows how to ask the right questions so that you can let us know exactly how you want your Witsunday Superyacht charter to look. We can then take care of all of the details and planning (the best kind of holiday) and present you with a fully customised plan so that all you need to do is get here and let us take care of your experience.
