Discover the rich, natural wonders of Queensland

Boat Trips to Islands

People from around the world associate Queensland with the stunning islands of the Great Barrier Reef and Whitsundays, and when you stay at The Feathered Nest you are lucky enough to have both at your doorstep.

Exploring the islands is easy with many tours and day trips to the postcard perfect Whitsunday islands - including Daydream Island, Hamilton Island, Hayman Island and Lindeman Island - departing from Airlie Beach or Shute Harbour. Go for the day and enjoy fishing, snorkelling or diving amongst the tropical fish.


There are a number of fantastic local operators who can take you to the islands. Take a look at the Tourism Whitsundays or Mackay Tourism websites for further information, or come and see us at reception.
