Henning Island - Picture Tour

Henning Island, Whitsundays

Henning Island has had an interesting history. It was named after the assistant paymaster on the ship The Salamander, William Henry Henning, who one day hopped onto shore to do some shooting. Little did he know that the island was also inhabited by a hermit who disliked visitors and Henning was promptly shot.

Henning Island is at the southern part of the Whitsundays Group islands. The island is a National Park and is easily accessible on all tides. There’s a large, well appointed campsite with visitors being subjected to permits and feeds.  And don’t worry, the hermit no longer lives on the Island.
