5 Must-Visits in Moranbah - Places to relax during a business trip

Moranbah is a well-known city mining. It is located in Queensland and is often the place for business meetings. Moranbah is not all about meetings, though.


Whitehaven beach

As can be expected by the name itself, the Whitehaven beach is a place of pure white, pristine sand that appears right out of a fairy tale. It is a part of the Whitehaven National Park and provides a place of safe and tranquil waters for you to enjoy. The beach is open to the public on every day of the week, despite it being a holiday or not. To access the Whitehaven beach, though, you need to take a boat. You can always take the public transport to get there.


Hayman Island

Located adjacent to the Whitehaven beach, the Hayman Island is home to some of the best accommodation in Moranbah. The island is not closed for the public on any day of the week, nor are there particular visiting hours. As long as you are able to find a boat to take you to the island, there is no regulation against it. You can find a list of ferries and corresponding fares on the website of Hayman Island.


Regional Botanical Gardens

The Regional Botanical Gardens are located a little towards the coast from the heart of Moranbah where most of the business accommodation options like Oaks Moranbah are located. However, it is a drive of only a couple of hours, making it the ideal trip to take on a day-off during your business trip. The gardens are full of tropical flora and insects that are both colourful and exquisite. The Gardens is open to the public from 5 in the morning until 9 in the night. While you can visit the Gardens over the weekends, the administration offices operate only on weekdays. There is a cafe located inside the Gardens called Lagoons Cafe where you can enjoy a snack and rest while on your tour.


Whitsunday Islands

Whitsunday Islands are arguably the most popular islands in the region. There is no admission fee for the island, nor does it have a specific opening time. It makes a good getaway island for people of all ages, including families. You can make a round tour of the Whitsunday Islands by signing up with one of the tours that take you on exploring the island.


Hamilton Island

If you want to pay a visit to the Great Barrier Reef, Hamilton Island would be the ideal starting point. You can also engage in a number of other activities here like snorkelling, para-sailing and gliding. There are other activities to do on the island, as well, including exploring the island and its local culture and way of life. The island is home to a large number of restaurants, resorts, and hotels so that you can even make it a weekend destination if your business trip allows you to take the weekends off. You can take a boat to the Hamilton Island, or save time by taking a domestic flight directly there.
