Nick 'Honey Badger' Cummins touches down in the Whitsundays

WATCH out Whitsundays - there's a honey badger in town.

Former professional Australian rugby union player Nick "Honey Badger" Cummins was spotted at The Big Mango today after touching down at Whitsunday Coast Airport on Monday.

While copping significant criticism for his controversial move, Cummins escaped the media frenzy by taking on the Kokoda Track in Papua New Guinea.

Along with friend James Brodie, the duo walked the track to raise funds for the Grass Skirts Project which empowers women and helps with domestic violence issues in Papua New Guinea through sport.

Now, Cummins has popped up in our little corner of paradise and we're sweating like a cat at a greyhound meet.

The runaway Bachelor was spotted at Denman's Beer Cellars on Monday evening and a caller on 100.3 Mackay said he saw him depart Daydream Island with camera crews in tow on Tuesday.

There's no telling if it's a pleasant diversion or Love Island Whitsundays, but there's no doubt the Honey Badger will turn heads
