The rebrand is based off extensive research into the Island’s past, its people and the vision for the future, calling on the resort’s Facebook community to help share their memories and add colour and depth to the new brand’s story.

The renewed logo incorporates two of the Island’s most iconic residents, the beloved mermaids and the Island’s very own Living Reef residents – the stingrays.

“The Island has undergone a huge journey from the devastation caused in 2017 by Cyclone Debbie and we wanted the new brand to signal the evolution of the Island,” Director of Sales and Marketing, Jayson Heron said.

“The new brand gives a nod the Island’s heritage whilst also looking to the future.”

The new look and feel for the brand has focused on epic, intimate and immersive photography inspiring guests to imagine their first steps onto the Island, instantly relaxing into their dream holiday.

Custom abstract illustrations inspired by the landscapes, flora and fauna surrounding Daydream Island are also expected to become synonymous with the brand, creating the ultimate interpretation of getting lost in the moment.
