Part of the community Hamilton Island Services

Over 1,000 people live permanently on Hamilton Island - meaning that when you become part of our team, you’re also becoming part of a very special community.

Staff facilities and services

Though it’s a car-free island, getting around and staying in touch is incredibly easy. Most of the resort side of the island is accessible by foot, several of the resorts utilise golf buggies, and there is also the Hamilton Island’s free Island Shuttle service. 


A free shuttle bus service for guests and employees operates daily. As everything is in walking distance, travelling by foot is also a popular option (and the hills offer a good opportunity to get fit!). Depending on your position, you may be given access to company vehicles and golf buggies for work purposes only.
