Welcome To Long Island

Nestled in a peaceful location between Airlie Beach and Hamilton Island, Long Island is a spectacular holiday destination in the tropical Whitsundays. Sitting right on the iconic Great Barrier Reef, Long Island has been declared a National Park and boasts over 13km of walking trails. Combined with the scenically stunning landscapes, such as dramatic headlands, secluded beaches and lush bushland, Long Island offers a tropical oasis for exploration and relaxation.

Commanding breathtaking views across the Coral Sea, Long Island is just 9km long and 400m wide and enjoys a beautiful tropical climate all year round. The island is surrounded by colourful coral reefs and a variety of tropical marine life which can be explored on a number of snorkelling expeditions. Together with an outstanding array of outdoor activities such as fishing, kayaking and day tours across the Whitsunday Islands, Long Island is the perfect destination for your holiday escape.

One of the few Whitsunday islands to offer resort accommodation, Long Island's two outstanding resorts provide comfortable and luxurious accommodation right on the beautiful beachfront. Ensuring you enjoy a peaceful and secluded stay, both resorts only cater to a small number of guests at any one time and have limited WiFi and phone service. An excellent alternative to the crowds and on the mainland, Long Island offers the unique opportunity to completely switch off and unwind in nature.
