A stunning tropical paradise, Hamilton Island boasts an idyllic year-round climate, perfect for family holidays, romantic sojourns and active getaways.

Families are particularly catered for on the island. Join a snorkel safari and encounter the colourful marine life of the Great Barrier Reef. Paddle a kayak and discover teeming reefs and the Coral Sea seabed from above. Or visit one of several restaurants, where children (12 and under) eat for free when dining with their parents. 

It’s hard to find a more romantic place than Hamilton Island. A couples’ retreat with a dreamy atmosphere, the island hosts a number of facilities custom built for lovers. Sip champagne and indulge in sweeping views from atop One Tree Hill. Dine at the Beach Club Restaurant, where sublime surrounds are complemented by exquisite modern Australian dishes and an adults’ only booking policy. Or relax with a massage at world-class day spa, Spa wumurdaylin.

Home to an exciting array of outdoor adventures, the splendours of Hamilton Island must be seen to be believed. Experience one of the Whitsunday's foremost natural attractions, Whitehaven Beach, guided by a local eco-tourism operator. Circumnavigate Hamilton Island via Fitzalan, Perseverance, Dent and Cowrie Islands on an ultimate catamaran sailing adventure. Or tee off with stunning views from premier golfing destination, Hamilton Island Golf Club, designed by five-time British Open winner Peter Thomson. 

Hamilton Island also caters for business people as a great conference destination.
