Daydream Island is a long narrow island (about one kilometre long and 300 metres wide) that has a resort development on its northern and southern ends, with vine forest and hoop pines covering the hill in the middle.
Smallest of the resort islands and refurbished in 2001, little Daydream has a small marina for visiting yachts. Named "Daydream" after his yacht, Paddy Lee Murray stopped here on a world cruise in the 1930's and went no further!
Approaching from the islands access is via unsafe passage or in-between North and South Molle Islands.
Daydream Island is not a particularly good anchorage as it is subject to swift currents on both sides. There is a small marina on the North-eastern side of the island and five moorings are available just outside the marina area. You cannot anchor anywhere around the island as it is foul ground, and the cost of retrieving your stuck anchor will quickly dampen your holiday mood. The island offers a large variety of activities and facilities, many are free of charge. No forward bookings for the marina or moorings - you are required to radio the resort for availability.
