Daydream Island

The aptly named Daydream Island Resort boasts 300 rooms and 9 luxury private suites. The resort and its wonderful Endeavour Wedding Chapel are famous with lovers and honeymooners throughout the world. Adding to the romance is an aquatic setting found nowhere else.

The runaway feature is Daydream's purpose-built outdoor aquarium known as The Living Reef. This extraordinary chain of lagoons is home to more than 50 varieties of coral, rays, sharks, starfish and numerous species of exquisitely coloured marine fish. Visitors young and old enjoy a range of water sports and  dive, snorkel or cruise the island's beautiful protective natural reef. Mini-golf, cycling and bush walks are other favourites.

After a day of exhilarating activity, Daydream Island's scenic open-air cinema plays host to modern quality movies, and the resort's award-winning Rejuvenation Spa offers a range of dedicated health and beauty treatments - perfect alternatives to relax before indulging in a hearty meal at one of the island's excellent eateries.

Daydream Island is easy to get to. Just hop aboard one of the many services scheduled from Airlie Beach or Shute Harbour on the mainland, or travel direct from  nearby Hamilton Island.
