Getting Here and Around in Daydream Island


Getting Here and Around

Cruise Whitsundays runs several daily services between Daydream Island and Great Barrier Reef (Hamilton Island) Airport Jetty, as well as from Whitsunday Coast (Proserpine) Airport and Proserpine Rail Station; and between the island and Abel Point Marina and (less frequently) Shute Harbour. Cruise Whitsunday Resort Connections offers direct island transfers from Hamilton Island Airport on modern, air-conditioned catamaran cruisers.

Although most people arrive by boat from Great Barrier Reef (Hamilton Island) Airport, an alternative is to fly to Whitsunday Coast (Proserpine) Airport on the mainland, catch a bus to Shute Harbour, then take a ferry to the island. Domestic airlines Virgin Australia and Jetstar have daily scheduled flights from Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane to both Great Barrier Reef (Hamilton Island) and Whitsunday Coast (Proserpine) airports; several long-distance rail services stop at Proserpine Rail Station, near Airlie Beach. Cruise Whitsundays ferry services are scheduled to coincide with incoming flight and trains, with coach transfers from Proserpine to the ferry port available. If you’ve prebooked an air transfer, a representative from Air Whitsunday will generally greet your incoming flight at the airport. Check with each carrier for weight and baggage restrictions.
