Long Island Whitsundays Ferry Day Tours from Airlie Beach Australia
The Whitsundays is a group of tropical islands off the north east coast of Australia. Long Island is one of 74 islands with access by way of a ferry ride from Shute Harbour or Airlie Beach the sometimes vibrant sometimes sleepy but never boring seaside town and known locally as the Gateway to the Whitsundays.
Long Island in the Whitsundays
Leaving from ShuteHarbour gives a great perspective of the islands and the topography of the main land and the ferry ride only lasts 15 minutes. Long Island is nine kilometres in length and boasts three resorts all offering a different style of accommodation.
Long Island Resort caters for families and large groups. Peppers Resort provides accommodation for romantic interludes offering privacy from a balcony overlooking the bay. Tucked away in Paradise Bay Eco Friendly Whitsunday Resort is as the name suggests.
Long Island Resort
As you step off the ferry a porter will greet you and take care of your luggage. It is up to you whether you walk the jetty or ride the cart back to the Long Island Resort. The walk is pleasant and only takes a few minutes. If you are lucky you might spot a turtle or stingray in the water below the jetty.
