South Molle Island is located in the heart of the Whitsundays. South Molle Island is the largest of the Molle Island Group and features one of the longest-established resorts in the Whitsundays. The resort is currently operating as a backpacker / adventure travel resort for the young and young at heart.
South Molle is a hilly island with grasslands, lush pockets of rainforest, secluded bays and fringing reefs. The Molle Islands are virtually joined along a causeway so you can walk across to Mid Molle Island at low tide.
South Molle has extensive birdlife that includes dozens of colourful lorikeets, currawongs and the endangered bush stone curlews.
