Family Holidays on Hamilton Island
Affordable family holidays on Queensland's magnificant Hamilton Island.
Hamilton Island is situated in the middle of Queensland's Whitsunday Islands at the edge of the Great barrier Reef. Here you'll experience everything that is great about Australia - beautiful natural surrounds, calm waters, warm weather, fascinating coral reefs and diverse flora and fauna.
A Whitsunday family holiday is filled with active fun and games, gentle bushwalks, encounters with native animals and the beauty of Australia’s most famous natural wonder, the Great Barrier Reef. And when you want to spend time by yourselves, Hamilton Island’s first-class child-minding club ensures fun is a priority for all the family.
Family Friendly Holiday Accommodation
There’s nothing easier than organising a family holiday Whitsundays style. There’s no charge for kids to share a room with their parents and enjoy Hamilton Island’s activities and facilities. The choice of accommodation to suit family holidays includes self-contained apartments, hotel rooms and a large range of holiday rentals and beach houses.
Enjoy a relaxing meal overlooking the marina with the family at Manta Ray Cafe or breakfast with the Koala's at the Hamilton Island Wildlife Park. With 5 participating restaurants in the 'kids stay and eat free' program you are spoilt for choice when holidaying with the family on Hamilton Island.
Kids Club and Holiday Activities
When parents want to leave the kids for a few hours to go cruising the reef or embark on an island adventure, the qualified child-minding staff at the Clownfish Club are there to help. The Clownfish Club caters for children aged from six weeks to 14 years, with activities suited to different age groups. In the evening, private babysitting can be arranged in your own room, and you can leave that bulky pram at home with a range of prams and strollers available for hire.
