Hamilton Island – Nature, Activities and Family Fun

img-promoFamilies come in all shapes and sizes – extended, blended, small or sprawling. With different age groups, tastes and personalities to cater for, the quintessential family holiday is one that allows each member to have their own ideal holiday experience.

Hamilton Island, with its unique blend of nature, activities and family fun is celebrated as one of Australia’s most spectacular and sought-after holiday destinations, with an abundance of tours, experiences and outings to suit every family member’s taste, pace and budget.

Perfectly positioned in the heart of the Whitsundays region, Hamilton Island is central to world-famous natural icons such as the Great Barrier Reef, Heart Reef and Whitehaven Beach. Fringed with pristine beaches, turquoise waters and 73 neighbouring islands to explore, Hamilton Island offers the perfect combination of relaxation and adventure.

Whether you’re seeking a relaxing beach break, a bush walking escape, an unforgettable dining experience, or an activity that will really get the adrenalin pumping, Hamilton Island won’t disappoint.

Australia’s Natural Wonderland

With its unspoiled, natural habitat (70% is preserved bushland), Hamilton Island is a nature lover’s paradise. Throw in the breathtaking beauty of the Great Barrier Reef, surrounding coral havens and secluded beaches, and it’s easy to see how Hamilton Island earned its reputation as Australia’s nature playground.

Snorkel or dive the reefs, take a trip to Whitehaven Beach, relax into a bushwalk or take the Passage Peak challenge for breathtaking views of the Whitsundays. For wildlife enthusiasts wallabies, goannas, sea eagles, ospreys, sea turtles, thousands of species of coral and tropical fish, and other native flora and fauna are in abundance.

Unforgettable Attractions and Activities

Hamilton Island offers an exciting itinerary of experiences and tours. Explore the waterways from a sea kayak, or take a bird’s eye view of the Whitsundays with a scenic helicopter ride. Play a round of golf at the 18 hole golf club, or experience the thrill of catching your own dinner on a fishing charter.

For families with a little more time, Hamilton Island is the ideal starting point for a sailing holiday adventure – relax on a luxury, fully crewed yacht, or experience the freedom of bareboating.

Family Fun for Everyone

Hamilton Island is tailor made for family fun, with many free activities on offer. Try go-kart racing, bowling, mini golf, jet ski, or dinghy hire.  Relax with a book on Catseye Beach, join a game of beach volleyball, swim in one of five resort-style pools, or paddle board across the bay’s crystal waters.  

You can meet Australian wildlife up close, or breakfast with koalas at WildLife.  One Tree Hill Lookout is a popular family picnic spot offering magnificent views and unforgettable sunsets, or dine at one of the many world-class restaurants in the bustling Marina precinct.
