For some of the best views of Hamilton Island and its surrounds ascend up the Passage Peak hiking trail. Beginning along the Scenic Trail and joining up with the Saddle Trail, Passage Peak is a challenging yet incredibly rewarding journey. There's a picnic area at the halfway point of the trail where you can enjoy beautiful views overlooking the north and south sides of the island from the Hill Top Viewing Area. The second leg of the trail is more challenging as it is quite steep, however once you reach the top of the trail you'll be standing on Hamilton Island's highest point overlooking the beautiful Whitsundays region. Be sure to take your camera as this is one view you won't want to forget.
