Island Works

Hamilton Island is continually working to improve our infrastructure and guest experience. Each year we invest millions of dollars to upgrade facilities or to create exciting new concepts.

Current Projects

Reef View Hotel Refurbishment

From Saturday 1 February to Monday 9 March 2020 inclusive, renovation works are being conducted within the Reef View Hotel. Works will be carried out across 33 of 368 rooms within a contained area in the hotel between the hours of 9.00am and 5.00pm, Monday to Saturday.

These works are essential in keeping our facilities up-to-date and of a high quality to ensure we continue to provide guests the best possible experience whilst on Hamilton Island. Guest experience is our main priority and every precaution will be taken to minimise any guest impact.

For further information please call 1300 080 503 to speak with our team.

Passage Peak Viewing Platform

Passage Peak will be closed from Wednesday 27 November until late April due to the installation of a new viewing platform at the Passage Peak lookout.

Passage Peak is one of the many walking trails on Hamilton Island and boasts spectacular 360 degree views of the surrounding Whitsunday Islands and Coral Sea. This new platform will provide an even greater viewing experience for guests. All other trails will be open during this time.

Staff Accommodation development at Palm Valley

Works are well underway at Palm Valley to provide a new staff accommodation complex which enables the redevelopment of the Palm Terraces into a guest accommodation option. Stage one will involve the construction of 84 rooms, designed similarly to the existing Azure staff accommodation apartments. Stage two includes further expansion of the staff precinct in that area including a 25 metre lap pool and common area opposite the sports oval to further enhance recreational facilities. The project is due for completion in September 2020.
These works will not impact the resort side of the island as it will be localised to Palm Valley only. Guests visiting Palm Valley activities such as the Go Karts, Quad Bikes for Kids, Off Road Adventure Tours or the Driving Range, plus Hamilton Island Air customers, may see truck or machinery movement however this will not have an impact on guest experience.
