Activities for all ages

For a fun-filled, action-packed day, visit Daydream Island Resort and Spa, one of the iconic Whitsunday Islands. 

About Daydream Island Resort and Spa

Daydream Island Resort and Spa is one of the premier resorts in the Whitsunday Islands. It's tiny in size and you'll find it no trouble to explore the whole island.

Daydream Village at the southern end of the island has been especially developed with day visitors in mind. It has all the facilities of an island resort and then some! Set around the swimming pool is a bakery, watersports, shop and souvenir boutique. There are tennis courts, a children's playground and the fantastic 'Living Reef' Coral Lagoon filled with colourful coral and fish life. Look out for the fantastic Marine Biologist presentation at shark and stingray feeding time!

There's lots of room to laze away the day pool side, on the lawns or adjacent beach. Take a swim, stroll along Sunset Beach or see wallabies and endless bird-life on the rainforest walk. The 'Around Australia' mini-golf course has to be the best in the world - definitely not just for the kids!

Itinerary

Choose a full day cruise, a half day cruise or, if you're up with the early birds, book a breakfast cruise! Either way, you'll start the day aboard our day cruise vessel for the short journey to Daydream Island. Once upon the island, the day is yours to choose to do whatever takes your fancy! We will return to Daydream Island again later in the day to pick you up and return you to the mainland or island.

The cruise vessel

Your day cruise vessel has air conditioned interior saloons and seating areas outside. 

Food & Drink

If you're starting the day early with a breakfast cruise, you'll enjoy a superb buffet breakfast of hot and cold items at Waterfalls Restaurant.

Lunch options are either at 'The Boathouse' bakery at the southern end of the island, or poolside at Mermaid's Restaurant at the resort end of the island. The Boathouse Bakery has a range of sandwiches, rolls and similar. Vouchers are provided with a value of $20 for Adults and $10 for Children. At Mermaid's you can tuck into a delicious two course meal. Note: meals are not included for infants.
