Important safety message from Hamilton Island management

Hamilton Island is part of the Whitsundays marine ecology and sharks are present within the waters in the region.
Following the tragic attacks in Cid Harbour, Hamilton Island has increased surveillance of Catseye Beach and reminds all guests to take care in the water. Whilst the risk of a shark attack is very low, it does exist and guests swim at their own risk.
If guests have any concerns at all about swimming in the waters surrounding Hamilton Island, our advice is to make use of the many pools around the resort.
The Queensland Police Service has advised that no individual should swim at Cid Harbour.
