Award Winning Daydream Island Resort is the jewel in the crown of Queensland?s tropical Whitsundays in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef. With 296 rooms and suites, a world class Rejuvenation Spa, various restaurants and bars, lagoon swimming pools, mini-golf, a fringing coral reef, an outdoor cinema and the Living Reef - one of the world?s largest outdoor aquariums, there?s something for everyone on Daydream.

Check In: 14:00|Check Out: 10:00


There’s no other island quite like Daydream, on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. It is one of the few inhabited islands of the spectacular Whitsundays group, with a fringing reef a mere flipper’s kick from shore and a fascinating, Living Reef coursing through the island itself. The Living Reef is one of Australia’s most unique, interactive attractions, tended by a team of marine biologists and home to myriad species of wondrous marine life.
Being close to the mainland, yet right on a fringing coral reef, Daydream is ideal for destination weddings, with picture-perfect backdrops such as Lovers Cove, Mermaids Beach or the stunning Endeavour Chapel, overlooking the sparkling Coral Sea.
Guests enjoy a diverse range of dining options inspired by an abundance of fresh, local produce, delivering the “restaurant Australia” experience for which our country is famous.
Each of the island’s 296 rooms and suites offers a delightful view to wake up to – across lush, tropical gardens or looking out to the impossibly blue waters of the Whitsundays.
