Hill Inlet Tours

9 reviews
Hill Inlet
Often described as one of the best views in all of Australia, Hill Inlet is a must-visit in the Whitsunday Islands area. Its a feature of countless tours throughout the region and sits on the large Whitsunday Island at Whitehaven Beach.

If you travel along Whitehaven Beach to the north, you'll run into Hill Inlet. Try to be there when the tides are retreating, as this is when you'll have the luxury of watching perfect white sands appear in a twist among the clear blue waters. From the air, it almost looks unnatural, like a water-color painting or a colorful piece of sand art.

Most people arrive by boat and take a dingy ashore. To truly appreciate the view, however, you'll want to make your way to the most popular lookout point over Whitehaven Beach and Hill Inlet, a spot called Tongue Point. It's here that the magnitude of the beach and inlet are best experienced.

Practical Info

Most visitors come to Whitehaven Beach on Whitsunday cruises or via a powerboat. However, if you're in a self-sufficient boat, you can anchor just off the beach as well. Another great way to see the amazing beach and inlet is via flightseeing or helicopter tour.
