Hiking & Bushwalks
Hayman offers a wide range of hiking terrain, from dense rainforest and mangroves to rocky inlets and secluded sand beaches.
Hayman has some incredible hikes with outstanding vistas around the island. Explore Hayman’s natural surroundings and bring a camera to take some postcard photos of you and your family. Some walks get steep and rocky in places so a pair of good quality closed in shoes is highly recommended along with a bottle of water.
Privately guided island walks are available upon request.
Whitsunday Lookout – 1.5 kilometres
The Whitsunday Lookout is the first in a series of viewpoints that you will discover as you start out on the western or marina section of the circuit walk. Bring a sturdy pair of shoes to ascend the short but steep climb. This lookout offers great views over the marina and ideal sunset views along Whitsunday Passage.
Blue Pearl Bay – 3 kilometres
The short hike to Blue Pearl Bay brings you to some of the best local snorkelling and sunset views. Because of the steeper and rougher terrain in the early stages of this walk, sturdier shoes are a must and if you are planning a day on the beach try to travel light. Alternatively, we can drop you and your supplies at Blue Pearl Bay by boat.
Dolphin Point – 4 kilometres
At the northernmost tip of Hayman, Dolphin Point offers great views of sunrise and sunset. The 90-minute walk will also give you the opportunity to sit in the ‘God’s Arm Chair’ rock formation as you take in the surrounding views. Be sure to bring a bottle of water and sturdy shoes.
Cook Lookout – 4 kilometres
Situated 250 metres above sea level, Cook Lookout is the tallest point on Hayman and well worth the walk. Enjoy a steady breeze and amazing views overlooking the resort, from Cook Lookout to Hook Island. Be sure to bring a bottle of water and your sturdy shoes.
