Brampton Island Honeymoon Guide

Located at the southern end of the Whitsundays, Brampton Island is almost entirely made up of national park and is the perfect honeymoon destination.

Choose from any of the 12 white sandy beaches for sunbathing, swimming and snorkelling above the island’s fringing reef.

Join a jet ski safari to circumnavigate the island and explore beautiful beaches and secluded spots that are just perfect for a romantic picnic.

Explore the hilly island along several walking tracks or stroll across to uninhabited Carlisle Island at low tide.

Or relax by the pool, unwind at the island spa and later enjoy fine dining ashore or afloat on a sunset cruise.

Where to stay

The island’s single 3.5-star resort, Voyages Brampton Island, offers a colourful and easy-going resort with spa facilities and a huge range of activities including sailboarding, snorkelling, catamaran sailing, jet ski tours, tennis, archery, fishing and water skiing.

Note: This resort has closed and looks unlikely to open anytime soon.
