All of the Whitsunday Islands are great vacation spots, but South Molle Island is reported to be the most affordable of them. South Molle is only eight km. away from Shute Harbor. It features grasslands, rain forest areas, secluded bays with white sandy beaches, and reefs along the fringes. The number of visitors at any one time is limited, which ensures that everyone has a pleasant time.

Spion Kop Track

Spion Kop Track is a popular trail on the northern side of South Molle Island. The trail takes bushwalkers through eucalypt forests, grasslands, and pockets of rain forest habitat. Sometimes hikers see colonies of the large bats known as flying foxes. Another portion of the track passes by an aboriginal quarry, where natives once acquired stone for making tools and weapons.

Molle Islands National Park

The Molle Islands are virtually joined together. During low tide, visitors can walk to Mid Molle from the north coast of South Molle Island. In addition to the beaches, trails, and pockets of rain forest found in the area, the national park includes a wildlife preserve. During the late spring, visitors to the national park can watch the coral spawn, which looks like an underwater snowstorm.
