Create an itinerary including Hill Inlet
Pure-white sands and vibrant blue waters make Hill Inlet one of the most visited tourist spots in the area. The inlet is located at the northern end of Whitehaven Beach, part of the Whitsunday Islands National Park. Best viewed from the lookout at Tongue Point, the inlet's white sands and blue waters blend seamlessly to create a sight most visitors describe as nothing short of breathtaking. You can take a boat to Tongue Bay and then make the short uphill walk to the point's lookout, but try to be there when the tide is low to experience this unusual fusion of colors. For those preferring a view from high above, helicopter and seaplane tours are also available.

  • What a great lookout to view Hill Inlet from the lookout walk that originates in Tongue Bay. It’s an easy walk to the lookout and the beach right on Hill Inlet.

  • This is a short little walk from the beach with a lookout overlooking this amazing landscape with ever shifting sands. We were told that every photo was unique because the sands shift and change...

  • Beautiful white sand. Due to the white sand it was impossible for us to burn our feet! Would definitely recommend.
  • Absolutely spectacular, best beach views I've ever seen!
