During your stay on Long Island with us here at Palm Bay Resort make sure you take in some of the spectacular scenery on the island by taking a hike.
Long Island is a national park with 13 kilometres of graded walking tracks across the Island, leading to beautiful secluded beaches, dramatic headlands and dense bush areas. The island is about 9 km long and at its widest point about 2 km wide, although there are places where it is hardly more than 200 m wide.
With its 1,012 hectares of tropical rainforest Long Island is the natural habitat to some native forest wildlife including Goannas, Wallabies, Curlews and a variety of other birds. You will also discover a variety of plant species, including towering hoop pines, along the walking tracks or explore the nearby bays and coral reefs.
Just 1 km from the coastline, Long Island is the closest island in the Whitsunday group to the mainland, making it an easy and affordable holiday destination. Palm Bay Resort provides a picturesque backdrop in a tropical climate suitable for year round swimming, snorkelling, scuba diving, fishing, hiking and water sports.
