Off-Water Events

The Gatorade Battle of the Paddles off-water social schedule offers something for all paddlers, non-paddlers and families attending the event.  Hamilton Island has a great range of bars and restaurants, but during the event paddlers are specifically catered for with additional food and beverage options and nightly entertainment.

Other highlights include a Fun Zone for the kids, a range of viewing facilities during the day for non-paddlers, nightly food stalls by the marina offering a range of easy and tasty dinner options, live entertainment each evening, and a Carb-up Dinner the night before the big Hamilton Cup 42km Marathon. Finally, the closing ceremony on the last night of the event is a party not to be missed.

In addition to the above, each night on a big screen will show all the highlights from the day’s racing action.
