Hayman Island

Hayman Island, Whitsundays, is one of the world’s finest resorts and is the only Australian resort to become a member of The Leading Hotels of the World. All rooms have magnificent views of the Whitsundays or the tropical landscaped gardens. Visitors receive the best of both worlds, combining magnificence with the natural beauty of a tropical paradise.

Hayman Island is the most northerly of the Whitsunday Group and is situated about 28 kilometres north-east of Shute Harbour and about 900 kilometres north of Brisbane. A quiet mountainous continental island mainly covered with eucalypt and hoop pine, Hayman offers you a feast for your eyes on any one of many bushwalks.

It is also the closest resort to the Great Barrier Reef with helicopter or cruiser transport giving guests the opportunity for coral viewing or diving.

Big game fishermen come to Hayman in the months of September, October and November in search of the legendary Black Marlin.

On a sparkling sunny day the colour of the water of Hayman’s lagoon and Whitsunday Passage are simply stunning – the hues range from gold to turquoise to emerald to sapphire. On Hayman, you will believe the blues can make you happy.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
