Langford Island Walking Track Completed
Thanks to Queensland Parks and Wildlife there is a new bushwalking track on the beautiful Langford Island. It’s a short track of about 300m with a gentle incline and some stone steps, best suited to walkers with a little fitness and bushwalking experience.
Walkers should allow about 20 minutes to stroll up the track and enjoy the views. Enjoy vistas over nearby Black and Hook Islands, and the sand spit of Langford Island itself. The track is framed by many native Whitsunday Bottle Trees.
This is one of the many new Whitsunday island infrastructure developments happening in 2017-2018. Whitsunday Escape has welcomed a series of new public bareboat moorings completed last year by Queensland Parks and Wildlife as well. All these extra facilities mean there is always something new for bareboat holiday makers to do.
Soon the walk will be enhanced with interpretive signage.
Langford Island is already popular with Whitsunday Escape charterers. It has a series of public moorings suitable for day use, and can be a good anchorage in light conditions too. The sand spit was made famous by Lara Bingle in the infamous ‘where the bl–dy h-ll are you?’ campaign. At low tide the sand spit reveals itself providing a wonderful beach to visit. Turtles frequent the area surrounding the island, as there is plenty of sea grass to eat. Sometimes snorkelers are lucky enough to come face to face with a turtle when snorkelling near Langford Island.
More bushwalks to come
