Border Island Walking Track & Lookout - Now Open!

Earlier this year, Queensland Parks and Wildlife announced new walking tracks for a Langford Island walking track being completed and open for public use, along with the news that there were 2 more walks and lookouts planned for Haselwood Island and Border Island, plus the expansion of a third lookout platform at Hill Inlet.

Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service announced last Friday that the Border Island walk and lookout is now complete. Accessed from Cataran Bay to the north, the 500m, Class 3, stepped track is suitable for people with some bushwalking experience and will be enhanced with interpretive signage in the coming months. Allow one hour to take on the steep ascent before meandering along the island’s saddle of native grassland to enjoy diverse views from each of the lookouts. 


Over the past few months, construction has been underway at the lookouts for Hill Inlet. The works are almost complete for a third viewing platform and an extension of the first lookout platform. They are scheduled to be complete by 30 October, pending favourable weather conditions.  

The upgrades are part of the Whitsunday Islands Investment Package, an initiative to improve tourism and recreation opportunities post TC Debbie. Access to a viewing platform will remain available at all times. 

With amazing beaches, lookouts, and snorkelling to do in the Whitsundays, bushwalks add more options to do on your bareboat holiday, allowing you to really immerse yourself in true Whitsunday style.
