Daydream Island

Daydream Island Resort & Living Reef is ideally located in the heart of Queensland’s Whitsundays Islands and the gateway to the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef. Following an extensive $140 million redevelopment in 2018-2019, our stylish and tranquil island resort offers a range of refurbished spacious and modern rooms and suites with stunning views overlooking the pool and garden landscapes or with ocean views. 

There is an expanded food and beverage offering across the island with three restaurants and three bars including an exciting new Asian Fusion restaurant that joins the buffet and modern Australian restaurants. 

The Living Reef is the main centrepiece of the island which is a unique free form coral lagoon wrapping 200m around the central building and holding over 1.5 million litres of water.  The Living Reef is home to over 100 species of marine fish, over 80 species of coral, and a variety of invertebrates such as starfish, sea cucumbers, and crabs.  

The Resort offers a revitalised pool landscape that sweeps through the tropical gardens across the resort allowing guests to swim and enjoy unparalleled views across the Whitsundays Great Barrier Reef along with unlimited access to a variety of non-motorised water activities 


Daydream Island Resort is a tropical haven for romantics, families, and groups alike.  With an array of activities on offer across the island each day, guests can experience the luxury of diving into a snorkeling adventure or exploring the island and surrounding Great Barrier Reef Marine Park by helicopter, sailboat, or jet ski.  Our expansive pool landscape, coral beaches, rainforest walks, outdoor cinema, gym facilities, and unlimited access to non motorised water activities, ensures there is something to keep everyone entertained. 

From $281 per night.
