Have you ever dreamed of an amazing island getaway, of sitting on a secluded beach in a hammock, cocktail in hand just listening to the waves? Queensland has some of the most beautiful island holiday locations in the world, some that aren’t as far away or as expensive as you think. Read on to find out about a few of Queensland’s most popular island holiday spots…
Daydream Island, Whitsundays
The Daydream Island Resort and Spa is the perfect island getaway for families. Located just off the coast of Airlie Beach, this award winning resort features its own man made reef with fish feeding, outdoor movie theatres, loads of watersports and activities, rainforest walks, kids playground, day spa, restaurant and more!  By far one of the best family holiday locations in the Whitsundays, Daydream Island Resort is a holiday you’ll remember for the rest of your life.
Hamilton Island, Whitsundays
With direct flights from Brisbane to Hamilton Island is the central location for a number of tour companies and boat cruises, making it a perfect home base if you’d like to see more of the Whitsundays. If you’d like to check out the reef, eat at amazing restaurants and do a few more tourist activities on your island escape then why not stay at the Whitsundays Apartments? With the world famous Catseye Beach located directly across from the resort you’ll be spoilt when it comes to snorkeling or diving. All rooms feature a full kitchen and large northerly facing balconies giving you one of the best views you can find in the Whitsundays.
Magnetic Island, North Queensland
“Maggie Island” as it’s commonly referred to is just  a short 25 minute ferry ride from Townsville. The Grand Mercure Apartments Magnetic Island is a 4 1/2 star luxury resort located just by the ferry terminal. Featuring 1, 2 and 3 bedroom beach-house style apartments this is the perfect spot for those with larger families or traveling in a group. Magnetic Island is a great location if you’re after that secluded island getaway while still being close to a main city for shopping or dining.
Fitzroy Island, Cairns
Fitzroy Island is one of the most beautiful Islands I know of. A 1 hour ferry ride from Cairns brings you to this amazing part of the world located in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef. The island is a listed National park and with sparking blue water, golden sandy beaches and deep green rainforests, you’re in for a real treat if you choose to holiday here. The Fitzroy Island Resort is another 4 1/2 star luxury island resort, with spacious one and two bedroom apartments (able to sleep up to 6 people). There’s so many features about this place to list you’ll just need to check it out yourself.
Herron Island, Great Barrier Reef
Are you after the ultimate Great Barrier Reef holiday experience? Heron Island is like no other, this isn’t a base camp for you to travel out to the Great Barrier Reef, this amazing little Island is ON the reef. Located 90kms off the QLD coast (a 2 hour ferry trip) you can’t get much better than this gem of an island if you’re after a peaceful, romantic and nature filled holiday. With guided reef walks, snorkelling lessons, beach picnic hampers, a luxury day spa and loads of nature tours and trips this really is the best place to experience why the Great Barrier Reef is one of nature’s most marvellous creations.
