Images of Daydream Island

Daydream Island Resort and Spa is a dynamic resort located off the Queensland Coast in the Whitsunday Islands, heart of the Great Barrier Reef.

Offering numerous accommodation styles each beautifully appointed with refreshing balcony views. The resort is complimented by a diverse range of fun filled activities, including many water sports, magical dining experiences, contemporary facilities, secluded beaches and stunning rainforest. From an outdoor cinema featuring the latest block busters, Australia's premier 19 hole themed mini golf course, direct access to live coral reef & our world class rejuvenation spa, Daydream promises to wow all your senses. Perhaps a trip out to the reef with Fantasea Cruises (optional extra) it's a great experience. We invite you to explore our beautiful island online and discover the Daydream Difference.
