Trip Planner: South Pacific / Australia / Queensland / Whitsunday Islands / Whitsunday Island / Hill Inlet
Pure-white sands and vibrant blue waters make Hill Inlet one of the most visited tourist spots in the area. The inlet is located at the northern end of Whitehaven Beach, part of the Whitsunday Islands National Park. Best viewed from the lookout at Tongue Point, the inlet's white sands and blue waters blend seamlessly to create a sight most visitors describe as nothing short of breathtaking. You can take a boat to Tongue Bay and then make the short uphill walk to the point's lookout, but try to be there when the tide is low to experience this unusual fusion of colors. For those preferring a view from high above, helicopter and seaplane tours are also available.

Hill Inlet Reviews
The outlook is worth the 15 plus minute walk up steps to the lookout. Not only do you have a postcard view of Whitehaven Beach, you can also see the shift silica sand in the inlet. Breathtaking. more »
Worth the trip. Beautiful boat ride to Hill Inlet. Steep climb is rewarded by stunning views of Whitehaven Beach and the swirling silica sand inlet below. more »
Took a chartered flight from Hamilton Island. Such beautiful scenery. the whitest sand in the world, and the most amazing blue tones ever
Magnificent views of this place. Watching this scenic beautiful place gives a great feeling which cannot be appropriately described in words. Green pastures and the river water flowing downstream is just amazing.
