Daydream Island Day Trip

Daydream Island is a great island for all ages and only a short journey from Airlie Beach. You can choose from a full or a ½ day trip, or if you are an early riser, head over for a delicious buffet breakfast on Daydream Island. 

A short journey from Airlie Beach, once you are on Daydream Island you can choose to spend the day however you like. Just be sure not to miss the last boat home.

Mini golf, snorkelling, bush walks, chill out on the beach, enjoy a cocktail in the pool bar…the choices are yours.
