Pop quiz: Which Whitsundays Island has its own airport so you can start your getaway the moment you land? Okay, maybe the title of this page gave it away—but that doesn’t make it any less true, or any less exciting. Especially since Hamilton Island is a gorgeous, jungle-clad paradise designed to give you the holiday of your dreams. Not only does this little gem in the ocean have its own reef, it’s about as close as you can get to the Great Barrier Reef and still have a roof over your head at night. It’s also smack in the middle of other islands, like Cumberlands, Long and the ruler of them all, Whitsunday. Oh, and Conway Forest Reserve on the mainland? Just a boat ride away. Enjoy a whole flock (or herd?) of islands with our Hamilton Island holiday packages. Your travel blog will thank you.
Jump in the water, of course! Between the kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, windsurfers, catamarans, jet skis and your very own arms and legs, Catseye Bay has everything you need for the water sports of your choice. If actually being in the water isn’t your thing, then take a time-out and just live the resort life with massages, grub and never-ending fruity drinks with umbrellas in them.
Getting itchy for a few rounds of golf? You’ll know by the way your body automatically falls into your swing stance every time you get out of your beach chair. Just boat on over to Hamilton Island Golf Club. Technically, the course is on Dent Island, but who keeps track on holidays to Hamilton Island, anyway?
You’ll be soaking up the sun all day, but just because it goes down every night doesn’t mean you have to stop your getaway. Enjoy a fabulous four-course meal with your favourite vintage while cruising around the island. Each resort offers at least one dining experience for landlubbers too, so you’ll have plenty of eats on shore. Then, of course, there’s that fish you caught out by the reefs this morning. Some of our Hamilton Island packages include accommodation with cooking facilities, so you can be the next Iron Chef right in your own room.
With so many islands nearby, you’ll have plenty of places to visit. Of course, there’s plenty to see right here on this one. Check out our Hamilton Island car rental options and go cruising. Hit Resort Drive right on Catseye Beach or head over to the marina. When you want to get away from it all on Hamilton Island holidays, drive out to Coral Cove. And for ultimate privacy, swim across the narrow end of Driftwood Bay to discover Escape Beach.
