Hook Island

Hook Island

Hook Island is one of the Whitsunday Islands off the coast of the Australian state of Queensland. The island is almost uninhabited and quite rugged. The island has two prominent geographical features on the southern side of Hook Island; the Nara and Macona inlets, two fjord-like recesses that are used as anchorages for the Whitsunday tourist fleet. The island's northern coast is noted for its colourful underwater coral growths, to which snorkelling and diving enthusiasts are attracted.

Hook Island Wilderness Resort

The only habitation on Hook Island is the Hook Island Wilderness Resort which is serviced in irregular days by large catamaran.

The resort has a combined bar/restaurant with meals and snacks available.

Some activities available at the resort are swimming, snorkelling, scuba diving and viewing the underwater observatory.
