Paddle Bay Track and Campsite
Airlie Beach
The Paddle Bay track on South Molle Island is a great walk if you are after an easy afternoon stroll. The lush rainforest at the start of the track has a eucalypt overstorey indicating that this was once an area of open forest. The track winds down to a beach of coral fragments and continues along the beach away from the resort.

Peter Faust Dam
Proserpine
Tucked away just 30 minutes inland from Proserpine is Peter Faust Dam. It's an ideal spot for water sports and an even better location for freshwater fishing with the prospect of landing a prized Barramundi - the prince of freshwater catches. A combination of tropical climate with long summers and mild winters, a very active fish stocking group, and the submerged branches and structure surrounding the lake, make it the ideal spot for Barramundi and you may even catch your first metre-plus Barra!

The Pinnacles
Hook Island
Arguably the best dive site in the Whitsundays, with hard corals comparing favourably to those seen on the outer Great Barrier Reef. The best dive is off the western beach, adjacent to the Woodpile and swim east at a depth of seven to 15 metres. Large coral bommies dominate the terrain, reaching nearly to the surface. Acropora corals are everywhere and huge porite corals in the shape of boulders and massive towers can also be seen. Manta rays are very common in the cooler months, May to September, as are big Maori Wrasse. This dive is not for the faint-hearted as black and white tip reef sharks are frequently seen! In the shallow water, particularly off the western beach, the coral cover is nearly solid, mostly staghorn, with only a few sandy patches.
