Hill Inlet Lookout Track, Whitsunday Islands National Park

Phone: 137468


On Whitsunday Island within the Whitsunday Islands National Park, take an uphill stroll to look over the turquiose waters to Hill Inlet, a culturally significant area to the Ngaro people.

From lookouts on the crest of Tongue Bay, admire breathtaking vistas over the inlet and marvel at the ever-changing shapes of blue water and white silica sand created by the moving tides.

All the lookouts have excellent views, so if the first one is too crowded, simply move on to the second or third lookout platform. Continue the circuit track, heading downhill to the track junction, which leads either back to Tongue Bay or over to Lookout Beach.

Watch out for migratory wading birds foraging in the shallow waters, and stingrays and sharks cruising out in the deep.

Learn about the unique lifestyle of this area’s Traditional Owners—the Ngaro People—from signs along the way.

With excellent anchorage at Hill Inlet and Tongue Bay, why not make a day of exploring this beautiful part of the Whitsundays?

Whitsunday Islands National Park is part of the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area, famed for its superlative natural beauty, outstanding examples of reef ecosystem development, evolutionary history and amazing diversity.
