Originally known as West Molle Island, Daydream became a resort around 1933 when it was purchased by retired army major Paddy Murray and his wife. In 1947 the island was purchased by Sir Reginald Ansett. He closed the resort in 1953, dismantled the buildings and moved the equipment. Daydream was closed until 1967 when it was sold to a Gold Coast entrepreneur who re-established the resort. Daydream changed hands several times in the ensuing years before being purchased by its present owners, The Williams Corporation in November 1999.
