***NOTE: as a response to COVID-19, all camping areas in Queensland's national parks are closed to the public until further notice. Check park alerts for updates.

Discover your own slice of tropical paradise on the Whitsunday Ngaro Sea Trail, a unique blend of seaways and picturesque walks across Whitsunday, South Molle and Hook islands.

Pack up the boat or sea kayak and head off to explore this timeless landscape. From Shute Harbour the trail circumnavigates Whitsunday Island, and includes stops on Hook and South Molle islands. If you intend to kayak the sea trail, discuss your plans with QPWS first.

Camping areas along the sea trail are accessible by boat or kayak only. Camping permits are required.

Explore a variety of short walks (under 3 kilometres return) to enjoy picturesque views on Whitsunday and Hook islands. Or tackle longer more challenging walks (4-8 kilometres return) on Whitsunday and South Molle islands.

Be sure to stop at Nara Inlet on Hook Island for the chance to immerse yourself in the Ngaro Cultural Site, a 340 metre return walk up the side of the inlet to a viewing platform at the cave's entrance, where Ngaro artwork adorns the fragile rock surface.

There's no more exciting way to explore the natural beauty and amazing diversity of this part of the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area.
