Passage Peak and Escape Beach

Mackay, Isaac and Whitsunday

A combination of trails on Hamilton Island in the Whitsundays that combines sunrise from Passage Peak, a stop at the remote Escape Beach and views from the Resort Lookout. These can also be done as three separate walks. Stunning views from Passage Peak, which is the highlight of this walk.

Getting there

Starts at Resort Trail Entrance near the Hamilton Island resort. Return to same location or Palm Valley Way near Hamilton Island airport.


Resort Walking Trail Map is useful. 

Route/Trail notes

The trail rises steadily from the Resort Trail Entrance up to Passage Peak, the highest point of the island. The last 200m is fairly steep but on a well-constructed path. You can return the same way, or extend the walk via South East Head and Escape Beach. 


No costs, other than getting to Hamilton Island if you're not staying on the island.

Nice early morning walk during a conference on Hamilton Island. Great spot to catch the sunrise (bring a torch)!
