Sailor’s secret:

The last ferry returns to the mainland at 6pm, setting the scene for a tranquil night in Shute Harbour. For dinner, cast a line for reef fish such as coral trout, red emperor or sweetlip right off your boat.


Home to Whitsunday Rent A Yacht, Shute Harbour is the closest charter base to the islands and there is no charge for charterers to use our jetty or moorings. It is the focal point of communications between the mainland and the Whitsunday Islands. Protected in all weathers, it’s the best mainland natural harbour along this stretch of Queensland coast. There are multiple national parks walks departing various points around Shute Harbour and a couple of jetties to stroll.
