Great Barrier Reef Sights


Shute Harbour

Shute Harbour Review

Ten km (6 miles) southeast of Airlie Beach along Shute Harbor Road, Shute Harbor is the main ferry terminal and gateway to the Whitsunday islands and the reef. The large, sheltered inlet teems with boats—it's the second-busiest commuter port in Australia, after Sydney's Circular Quay. Though accommodation is available, the harbor is geared toward transferring visitors. For a great view over Shute Harbor and the Whitsunday Passage, drive to the top of Coral Point.
