Welcome to Lindeman Island
Situated 15km southeast of the luxurious Hamilton Island, Lindeman was once a flashy resort but has since been returned to nature by liquidators. For the past decade, only nature photographers and hikers have provided any semblance of bustle, making independent treks for the varied island tree life and the sublime view from Mt Oldfield (210m). The mood is poised to change, however, as a $600 million redevelopment is set to commence in 2017. Lindeman is still mostly national park, with empty bays and 20km of impressive walking trails. Get here while you can.
