Hook Island Whitsundays - Queensland
Two magnificent 5km fjord-like inlets, Nara and Macona cut into the southern end of Hook Island to provide a spectacular anchorage for yachts.
Boaties refill their water tanks from cascading waterfalls. The diversity of coral of the fringing reefs on the northern shores provide some of the best diving and snorkelling in the islands.
Hook is rugged and a true wilderness island. Hook Peak, at 459m, is the highest mountain in the islands. One of the few walking tracks leads to Butterfly Bay named because of its shape and the butterflies which swarm around its shores. There is a low-key resort on Hook, an underwater observatory and camping is permitted at several sites around the island.
Camping on the island is available and staying at The Wildernes Resort Lodge on Hook Island is another option.
