Long Island, one of the islands in the Whitsunday Group, lies close to the mainland just south of Shute Harbour. Most transfers are via Shute Harbour or Hamilton Island.
It is about 9 km long and at its widest point about 2 km wide, although there are places where it is hardly more than 200 m wide. Part of the island is National Park and there are a number of walks through the heavily wooded vegetation to some of the secluded bays and headlands.
There are several resorts on the island, most of which cater for families and those on a budget.
