About Hamilton Island

One of more than 70 islands comprising the Whitsundays on the Queensland Coast, Hamilton Island lies near the heart of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. This car-free playground offers pristine beaches, diving expeditions, golf, fishing and a dedicated kid’s zone for the little ones.

Things to do

Partially covered in preserved bushland, Hamilton Island gives you a rare chance to see koalas, kookaburras and wallabies in their natural environments. Book a tour guide to explore the interior of the bushland or hike up to Passage Peak for unfettered views of the picturesque Whitsundays archipelago.

Hamilton Island Marina is an informal gateway to the Great Barrier Reef, providing personal watercraft and high-speed catamarans for a day trip to Whitehaven Beach and Whitsunday Islands National Park. You can also join a fishing expedition or hire your own dinghy with bait and tackle included.

Turquoise waters lap the shores Catseye Beach, where the entire family can enjoy snorkelling, watersports, stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking and mastering the waves on mini-catamarans. Need some downtime? Head to the Hamilton Island resort pool for swim-up cocktails, sun-drenched loungers and pool volleyball.

Getting around

With no cars allowed on the island, walking is a common way to get around, especially on the resort side where most of the eateries, bars and activities are located. There is also a free island shuttle or you can hire private two or four-seater golf buggies.

Known as the island’s most loved restaurant. Here you can feast on Asian-inspired dishes with a modern Australian twist.

  • What is the best place for a family vacation in Hamilton Island?

    If you are on holiday with the whole family, you will be looking for things to do on Hamilton Island with the kids. If your kids enjoy the outdoors and water sports, then you have picked the right destination. One of the most popular water activities for kids is water tubing. Hop on an inflatable water tube and get towed behind a speedboat while attempting to hang while the drivers do their best to get screaming and laughing out of you. Take the kids to the Hamilton Beach Go-Karting track if you need a break from the ocean but not from adrenaline. Older kids can drive a cart alone, and the younger kids can ride with a partner as they race around the track to victory. Most of the activities designed for family fun are around the bustling marina. Family-orientated hotels located at the marina include the Whitsunday Apartments and the Palm Bungalows.

We recommend Reef View Hotel if you plan to stay on the northeast side of the island. Get in touch with your wild side, visit the Hamilton Island Wildlife centre, and meet Aussie creatures close up, like koalas and wombats. The Whitsunday Apartments are a great choice of Hamilton Island hotels for travellers who want to be close to the wildlife centre.
