Yes, Hill Inlet on Whitsunday Island is jaw-dropping gorgeous!! I am so glad I didn’t miss out! I had a day to spare, and ended up doing this on a whim. Best choice! At the inlet we were let off the boat right on the amazing swirling sands. And after a walk along the beach, during which I spotted the cutest, blue, little crabs :), it was off into the rainforest. A fairly short, uphill walk (on a boarded path) later, we reached the lookout point, and the oh so stunning view!
I spent the day with the speedy Gonzales of the Whitsundays, a.k.a. Big Fury (magicwhitsundays.com), which is a rafting style boat that takes you around the islands in a super fun heartbeat, full speed ahead and fairly big waves 🙂 My fellow day trippers might have been a bit on the younger side, but 40-year-old me still had a lot of fun 🙂
PS! This trip included lunch at Whitehaven Beach and snorkelling at Dumbell Island. Nothing special, either of them.
