Most nights you’ll find, an island favourite delivering the hits and an awesome atmosphere at one of our evening venues. It could be sunset tunes at Marina Daze, unwinding after dinner at the Reef Lounge or meeting up with friends at Marina Tavern. We encourage guests to check the Hamilton Island App and to review the “What’s On” guide to see where and what times the performances will be each night. A perfect way to enjoy a few drinks and round out your day in paradise. 2) Outdoor movie night Lights, camera, action.... It's movie time! Photo by Andrea Francolini. Night time is also known as movie time on Hamilton Island. When the sun sets and darkness falls, our outdoor movie theatre is ready to put on a show. Come down to the marina where the big screen is set up under the stars. You can throw down a picnic blanket, lay out some snacks and be entertained by a movie chosen to be fun for all ages (generally PG). And the icing on the cake - it’s a free event for anyone on the island. Check the Hamilton Island App to get session times and movie listings. 3) Take the gang bowling Hands up if you love bowling! Not just an activity for rainy-days, our bowling alley is fun for everyone and a great group activity at night time, staying open till 9.00pm. The bowling alley transforms in the evening with state-of-the-art lighting and glow in the dark lanes, pins and bowling balls. With crowd pleasing party tunes and a licensed bar, it’s a great place to have a laugh, get competitive and test your skills. Who will be crowned the bowling champ in your group? 4) Trivia Pub Trivia with a view.

It’s available to guests who are 18+ and is perfect for after dinner entertainment. So, get a group of mates together and test out your knowledge on a range of topics. The main aim is to have a bit of fun, but there is also a swag of prizes to be won… plus the honour of being Hamilton Island Trivia Champions. 5) Dance into the wee hours at Garden Bar Shaken, not stirred at Garden Bar.
