Daydream Island can be found on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. It is a beautiful vacation spot for individuals, couples, and families and can be reached from Hamilton Island, Shute Harbor, and Airlie Beach. Affordability is just one of the many things that make a vacation at Daydream Island a wonderful choice for your next vacation.

On Daydream Island you will find beautiful lodging, exquisite dining, and a day spa to relax your mind and body. Enjoy an afternoon at the Aquarium, or spend the day golfing, swimming, or playing tennis. Bring your day to an end at Australia’s most beautiful outdoor movie theater. Additionally, spend your time lounging on one of the secluded beaches. Whatever your enjoy, you are sure to find it on Daydream Island.

Daydream Island was first called West Molle Island. The island was bought by Paddy Murray, a retired army major. Together with his wife, they opened the first resort in 1933. The island was purchased by Sir Reginald Ansett in 1947, and he closed the resort in 1953. It was sold to a businessman from the Gold Coast in 1967 and was reopened at that time. Since that time, the resort has remained open but had been owned by a number of individuals. The current owners are The Williams Corporation who purchased the resort in November 1999.

In the past, Daydream Island catered to families with a very child-oriented atmosphere. However, while they still have a number of family options available, Daydream has become more appealing to mainstream vacationers. Activities are now available for all ages. In addition, the resort offers a number of free activities that are included with a vacation package. This allows families and couples to enjoy themselves without a lot of additional expenses beyond the cost of a resort package.

 

Daydream Island is an award winning resort. Their honors include Best Superior Accommodation 4 star at the 2004 Queensland Hotels Association Awards for Excellence, Best Privately Owned Resort and Accommodation at the 2004 Queensland 400 Business Awards, and the Gold Award for Most Popular Resort Spa at the 2004 Holidays for Couples Reader’s Choice Awards.

Vacationers should leave the mainland from either Hamilton Island or Proserpine. From Hamilton Island, it will take approximately 35 minutes via launch transfer.

A 30 minute coach or limo ride from Proserpine connects to a Shute Harbour transfer, taking an additional 10 minutes to the island. Guests can also arrange for private seaplane or helicopter rides directly from the airport.
