A holiday to Long Island in the Whitsunday region of Queensland will give you a choice between two fantastic resorts. The island is situated close to the mainland and features many quiet bays and inlets and a high ridge running the full length of the island that provides fantastic views over the other Whitsunday Islands. The resorts on the island can be reached by ferry from either Shute Harbour on the mainland or from Hamilton Island. Great Barrier Reef airport on Hamilton Island is the busiest in the region and has regular flights from Cairns or southern capitals like Brisbane, Sydney or Melbourne.
Long Island Resort is a great family resort that is relatively inexpensive when compared with the other Whitsunday islands. All meals are included in the package so you don't have a huge bill when you leave. There are plenty of kids activities including a kids club so you can have a bit of time out. The resort has all the normal water sport's toys that you would expect and the kids can choose between the windsurfers, catamarans, canoes and surf skis. There is a great swimming pool and activities like archery and volleyball are all part of the fun.
Peppers Palm Bay is at the opposite end of the scale. It caters for the top end of the market and discerning travelers who like small numbers, privacy, great food and top of the range service. Peppers Palm Bay delivers true five star service in an idyllic location. The accommodation is in individual bures all located on the waterfront looking out onto a peaceful bay with the mainland as a backdrop. This is an ideal place for great bushwalks, scotch on the rocks, a good book and a totally relaxing holiday.
