This day cruise allows you to explore amazing activities and beautiful walks on Hamilton Island as you please: choose your own adventure! Your day starts with cruising through the scenic Whitsunday Islands towards Hamilton. Having arrived at Hamilton Island – and working up an appetite – enjoy breakfast with the koalas at Wild Life Hamilton Island’s Koala Café. After breakfast, you might like to visit the Wild Life park for a chance to get up close to many of Australia’s other iconic animals (entry not included). If nature walks call to you, take one of Hamilton Island’s various paths: Passage Peak, Southeast Head Trail or One Tree Hill. They all have in common fantastic views and a little sweat - just how much is up to you! You’re likely to encounter some more native wildlife in the island’s pristine, untouched native bushland – keep your eye out for wallabies, goannas, sea eagles, kites, ospreys, and more. Or take the leisurely option and stroll across Catseye Beach and enjoy a swim in the ocean or main resort pool. For lunch, choose a packed picnic for you to enjoy at one of the island's scenic picnic spots! Or you can lunch at the Marina Tavern on the waterfront. You may also choose to jump aboard one of the free courtesy buses and enjoy a scenic ride around the island. The boat departs back to Airlie Beach at 5:10PM sharp but please ensure to board the boat by 4:55pm. After a full day of adventure, enjoy a leisurely cruise back to Airlie Beach on your luxury vessel! Hamilton Island Walks Information: • Passage Peak Walk: This is a challenging but rewarding climb up 2,650 metres of bush track and rocky outcrops. There’s a picnic table halfway up if you need to rest. Hiking time is 90 minutes round trip and there’s a detailed audio tour available on the Hamilton Island app • Southeast Head Trail: Starting at the Scenic Trail entrance at the east end of Catseye Beach, follow the trail to Saddle Junction. Continue toward Passage Peak and you will see the signage for South East Head • One Tree Hill: Just 20 minutes uphill from Hamilton Island Marina, One Tree Hill has incredible panoramic views through the Whitsunday Passage
