Daydream is one of 74 islands in the Whitsundays with Whitehaven Beach, bush walks, and secret diving spots close by. Discover the laidback vibe of the newly reopened Daydream Island – the perfect place for a relaxing getaway. Spend your time swimming, enjoying the scenic surroundings, or learning about the Great Barrier Reef marine life at the Living Reef.


Start your day with a scenic cruise from Port of Airlie or Hamilton Island to Daydream Island, docking at the island’s exclusive private marina. From here you can choose your own activities: relax by the pool and admire the views, discover over 100 species of marine life in the newly extended Living Reef, and learn more about them from the onsite marine biologists. 


The Living Reef is a free form coral lagoon that wraps 200 meters around the central building on Daydream Island. It's home to over 100 species of local marine life including fish, small sharks, rays, and other reef-dwelling creatures. Up to 15 meters wide and containing fresh, filtered seawater, this man-made reef system offers a range of ways to get up close to resident marine animals.


The Underwater Observatory takes you 4 meters under the surface and showcases a large 7 x 3m window where you can watch the marine life going about their day. The open learning environment in the Education Centre has 8 living displays showcasing various habitats from mangroves to corals, a theatrette, and an interactive touch pool.


Then you'll be treated to a delicious two-course lunch at Inkstone Kitchen & Bar. Remember: this is a half-day tour. Unless you’ve got your accommodation booked, don’t miss the boat back to Airlie Beach!  With an array of activities across the island, there's something to keep everyone entertained on Daydream Island.
