4 star rating: Recommended February 2016

It was good to have the pass and meant we were able to relax in the knowledge we didn't need to queue for tickets and that our travel that day was secured. Being new to the area it was very reassuring.

Sorry but when we booked, it showed on the web site 3 x islander hopper but when we picked up our tickets we were told only 2 x islands
That being said we had a great time

We had bad experience during the trip. One day hopper pass should be leaving from port of Airlie not Abel point! Because of the wrong information, we went to Abel point and paid the parking fee and it was wasting our time.
