“Absolutely fantastic”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

I booked a 3 day 2 nights trip with koala adventures. The trip was so fun even though it rained. The best parts were the location and the staff. The island is beautiful and the snorkelling day was located in a stunning area in between Islands. The staff were so friendly and were so much fun in the evenings. Was sad to go! I highly recommend this place

I had an amazing time on south molle island at the koala adventures resort. All the staff were so nice and helpful. The snorkelling was brilliant and being out on the boat with the crew was fantastic! Whitehaven beach was breathtaking. I would definitely go back and will soon! I recommend this to everyone!

Absolute value for money... An entire island to yourself great boat and island staff... Had a great time....Really want to go back... The resort has a great pool and the mountain has epic views... Snorkeling gear was decent and the Whitsunday beach was fabulous...

My friends and I booked the three day package with Koala Adventures on South Molle Island. Exploring the the Whitsundays on the catamaran was gorgeous, but the best part was getting to snorkel with the sea turtles. Not only did we spend plenty of time in the water, but we were able to hike through the national park as well. The only thing I would change about the trip would be to stay a little longer.

Overall an excellent experience, chaperoned by some really genuinely fun and accommodating staff. The boat is great, the snorkeling is really quite fantastic and the actual resort is quite pretty. It is by no means a luxurious experience, but if you're looking to adventure in comfort and have a low-key, good time, this is ideal. My only complaint would be the food, but then again, that's not exactly why I came here.

Booked a 3-day, 2-night trip with Koala Adventures at South Molle Island resort with my college buddies. Glad I did too, not only did we get to spend a day at White-haven beach and snorkel the gorgeous reefs of the Whitsundays but we stayed on what felt like our own private island! I'm a bit of a outdoorsy guy so the island activities and scenery put this trip right over the top for me. Beautiful hiking trails, exotic wildlife, friendly staff, killer facilities, and without the crowds you'd normally expect with a trip package this affordable. Highly recommend this trip for anyone who loves natural beauty (and some drinking and fun in the evenings)!

Myself and my partner boarded Pride of Airlie,and to our surprise... a very large and stable sailing catamaran (we heard a lot of the boats can very small,old and slow)....great news for my girlfriend and she usually gets sea sick. Not this time, which was another reason we choose this trip, sail the Whitsundays by day, and sleep on a Resort Island by nite. Real happy :)
Day 1 Sailing into Adventure Island was a Dream....beautiful white sandy beaches, crystal clear water, palm trees, massive pool/spa...and a HUGE Bar entertainment area, golf course, tennis courts...Room was awesome, just one back from the Beach, nice balcony, and one of the cleanest we have had all trip. Real nice after being out sailing all Day (room does not ROCK)...Staff were amazing, super helpful and friendly. After a bit of Beach Volleyball, took girlfriend snorkelling right off the beach (in front of our room) heaps of fish and colourful coral. She loved the fish feeding,and the paddle boarding.I refused to sign at the Karaoke party(lucky for everyone else)
After a great breakfast day 2, we boarded early and set sail to Whitehaven Beach.What can I say Wow...more good news for the girlfriend, the catamaran(which has no keel)meant we could almost jump onto the beach from the boat...as she cant swim to good. That night at the resort after a huge dinner was a Island Beach party. Made some great new friends.
Even after a big night, day 3 we still made it up for the Island Bush walk. Spectacular views of the bay and a ancient Ngaro tribe quarry,just awesome. Trust me being our last day we did not want to leave, as I had not played golf on the Golf Course yet. Sadly we said our goodbyes to the staff, thanked them heaps for looking after us...and set sail home to Airlie. Best trip EVER, will be back next holidays for sure. Recommend this to anyone who doesn't want to be stuck on a smelly boat for 2 /3 days, and still get to sail the Whitsunday Islands, and have some FUN on a Island resort without having to pay surrounding Island resort prices. GREAT VALUE, as all meals/accommodation/snorkelling etc. were all included.Loved it.

Room Tip: Spend the extra $65 for the upgrade to the en -suited double.Real close to the amazing beach(hear th...
