Brampton Island

Brampton Island
Particularly beautiful island south of the Whitsundays
Brampton Island is located 32 km north-east of Mackay and is considered by some to be the southernmost island in the Whitsunday Island group. This is not entirely fair as the services operating in the Whitsundays (ie. ferry services from Hamilton Island and from the mainland port at Shute Harbour) do not include Brampton in their itinerary. It is more accurately part of the 70 islands which constitute the Cumberland Group.
