We used the Whitsunday island water taxi service to get to Sawmill Beach from Shute Harbour. From the beach there is a well marked track to the summit. It's similar to Mt Edwards in terms of difficulty (so not all that difficult). The view from the top is amazing, see all the way out to Hamilton Island and beyond. We were harassed by a March fly that wouldn't leave us alone, apart from that the top is fantastic!
