Located at the southern entrance of the world-renowned Whitsunday Island Passage, Brampton Island is 32 kilometres northeast of Mackay and 50 kilometres south of Hamilton Island.The island itself is characterised by great variation of vegetation with sections of tropical rainforest, dramatic stands of hoop pine, and lush coastal mangroves. The beaches are isolated and delightful.

Just off shore is a diverse range of fringing reefs where you can discover an amazing array of marine life and soft and hard corals. Brampton Island is all about fun, romance, reward, adventure and pure escapism.

Brampton Island Resort

Brampton Island Resort is the ideal haven for couples seeking a romantic escape. With fewer rooms than many of the resorts at the nearby Whitsunday Group of Islands, each affording spectacular views, and with no day trippers to interrupt the peace and solitude, you will undoubtedly find the relaxing holiday you’ve been searching for.

Before you know it the shoes are off, the swimmers are on and you’re off to explore this tropical paradise. Brampton Island Resort has a rhythm of its own as there are all sorts of great activities to enjoy. From fast and fun like water skiing, snorkelling, sailboarding, guided jet-ski tours, catamaran sailing, chip and putt golf, tennis, archery and fishing, to a slower, more leisurely beat – relaxing by the pool with a cocktail, indulging in a pampering massage, or just doing nothing at all.

Brampton Island Resort has its own health spa, The Sea Spa, set amongst tropical gardens to provide you with a peaceful escape. Enjoy a selection of spa treatments that nurture the mind and restore the body.

Four grades of accommodation have views of either tropical gardens or the beach and ocean. All rooms are well-appointed with private bathrooms, as well as a patio or verandah. As well of a host of activities and entertainment, the daily tariff also includes all meals. Full buffet breakfast, smorgasbord lunch and three course table d’hote, themed buffet dinner (including the sensational seafood night) as well as regular beach barbeques are some of what’s on offer.

Regular flights are available from all major Australian Capital cities to Brampton Island via Mackay. Helicopter flights from Mackay to the Island are also available. The flight between Mackay and Brampton takes approximately 15 minutes.
