Explore Hamilton Island 

Part of the Whitsundays, and in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef, Hamilton Island is one of Australia’s most spectacular and sought-after holiday destinations. Surrounded by pristine white beaches, and a kaleidoscope of coral and marine life, Hamilton Island is a perfect base for exploring the Great Barrier Reef and world-famous Whitehaven Beach.
 
On the island itself, you can enjoy a wide selection of bars and restaurants, year-round cultural exhibitions and performances, an abundance of water sports and endless activities and entertainment. For sailing enthusiasts, there’s the Hamilton Island Yacht Club, and for keen golfers, the Hamilton Island Golf Club is the only Australian 18-hole championship course on its own island.  Plus, with six different levels of accommodation to choose from across the island - ranging from plush, couples’ only suites, to family-friendly apartments and holiday homes, Hamilton Island really does offer something for everyone.
