Directions to Hamilton Island info

Situated right in the heart of the Whitsunday Islands, Hamilton Island is the ultimate holiday destination. This is a place where you can discover all that’s great about Australia – the warm blue ocean, coral reefs, great weather, amazing plants and animals, and fantastic service.

The most popular of the Whitsunday’s 74 islands, Hamilton Island is a pristine tropical island, with just the right amount of facilities and services to make your stay here extremely comfortable. Right on the edge of the Great Barrier Reef, Hamilton Island has become one of the best places to spend time whilst exploring the delights of the ocean, and the nearby islands.

The island is a place where you can do as much or as little as you like, you’re on holiday, and this is your time. If you’re into an active break then you can tee off at the local green, enjoy a morning out in a sea kayak, or take a boat charter out for a spot of fishing. If relaxation is part of your dream, then relax by the pool, enjoy a spa treatment, or maybe visit one of the nearby islands for a secluded day on the beach.

Travelling with families couldn’t be easier because there are all kinds of activities for the kids. Breakfast with the Koalas at the Koala Gallery, take a glass bottom boat trip or a submarine onto the reef, there’s mini golf, a 9 pin bowling alley and a rifle range. And of course, there’s nothing better than the safe, sandy beach and warm water to keep them amused for hours.

Hamilton Island also has a wide range of accommodation, from luxurious six star resort to Polynesian bungalows, which are perfect for families and groups of friends. And the same goes for food, as the island has as everything from pizza places and take always to elegant dining by the Marina.

Whether you’re looking for plenty to do or nothing at all, Hamilton Island is the ultimate Great Barrier Reef destination.

Hamilton Island Facts:

Getting here

Hamilton Island’s airport is the main hub for the Whitsunday Islands and the Great Barrier Reef. Flights arrive here from Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Cairns on flights by Qantas, Jetstar, and Virgin Australia. The airport also serves small private charters and operators who arrange flights over the reef.

For visitors who want to take the scenic route, Cruise Whitsundays operate a ferry route to the island from Shute Harbour and Able Point Marina at Arlie Beach.

Getting around

All arriving flights are met by a free shuttle which transfers guests their accommodation. If you’re staying at the Reef View Hotel Suites, Beach Club, Qualia or the Deluxe Holiday Home Villas, you will enjoy your very own VIP transfers by chauffeured golf buggy; Hamilton Island Holiday Home guests pick up their very own buggy from the airport

There are two ways to get around Hamilton Island - by yourself, or by bus, cars are not allowed. If you prefer to go it alone and your accommodation doesn’t include a buggy then they are available for rent. But don’t forget your driving licence.

• Hamilton Island has a fringing reef and the beaches are perfect. But if you want the Great Barrier Reef experience, there are plenty of trips available, both for snorkelling and for diving for visitors with a suitable qualification.

• If you want to get an idea of the expanse of the reef, why not try a scenic flight. This is a terrific way to get a true perspective of what a giant piece of nature is under the water.

• If it’s a secluded spot with the perfect beach you’re after, you have to take a trip to Whitehaven Beach, it’s perfect.

• Take a day out on the water and sail around some of the Whitsunday’s other islands, or maybe hire a kayak and paddle yourself.

• If you’re a golfer tee off at Hamilton Island Golf Course, to do so you’ll need to take a five minute ferry ride, as the course is actually on Dent Island.
