Christmas and New Year's Eve on Hamilton Island
This year Hamilton Island’s Summer Festival will be jam packed full of fun for the whole family. The annual festival always adds that something special to the entire Festive Season. The festival runs from midway December through to the middle of January to coincide with the school holidays.
Hamilton Island Summer Festival
Highlights of the 2016 season will include live entertainment from our resident musicians playing in many of the islands bars, restaurants and poolside locations. Santa will be making a personal appearance at our Carols by Candlelight held beneath the starry Whitsunday skies.
Christmas Eve Carols by Candlelight will take place on the outrigger lawns from 5.30pm. Join in the fun and enjoy a sausage sizzle and refreshments. We also hear that Santa may make a visit.
