Try this 5-Day Family Break on Hamilton Island
Family friendly Hamilton Island is made for families who want to hang out together and find pathways to adventure. The island oozes quality time, so if you don’t have long, don’t worry. Let our 5-Day Family Break inspire you.
The first thing you notice about Hamilton Island is how easy it is to get here. And once you’re here you don’t have to go anywhere else. This holiday literally starts the moment you touch down. Step off the tarmac, bypass the shuttle queue and hop into our valet transfer to the front door of your accommodation (less than five minutes away).
We always recommend a self-contained apartment for families. The kitchen is convenient and there’s room to move. You can pre-order your groceries and supplies online and have everything waiting for your arrival. Great for baby supplies.
The island’s beach and five pools are near enough that you’ll be able to coordinate naptime and lunch breaks with ease. Or take the complimentary golf buggy (kids love the golf buggies) down to the Marina for a meal or to do some shopping.
It doesn’t take long to piece together the layout of the island and you’ll be amazed how quickly everyone adjusts to ‘island time’. By the end of day one you’re in holiday mode.
For many families Day Two is all about the pools because the kids insist on it! If lounging around for much of the day sounds appealing, you’re going to love it. For the more outdoorsy types, let’s go on an island adventure.
You can read the definitive list of Things to See and Do on Hamilton Island here Top 10 Things To Do With Kids On Hamilton Island but these are a few of our family favourites.
If the kids are into prehistoric creatures and native animals bring them to WILDLIFE. They can get up close to crocodiles, snakes, lizards and marsupials, including kangaroos. They can hold a koala.
Snorkelling is a major pastime of any tropical island and Hamilton Island does not disappoint. Sailboards, kayaks and other beach sports equipment can be hired right on Catseye Beach. Life-affirming cruises of the Great Barrier Reef leave daily from the Marina.
Mini-Golf in a tropical island setting is the safe and secure way to exercise an energetic monster or calm the troops down. We love that it’s open from 6am–8pm daily.
The island’s Go-Karts must be mentioned because go-karts are just so much fun for everyone!
Rinse and repeat.
While you might be content with everything the island has to offer, there are small manageable tours to some of The Whitsundays’ most magical attractions, including Whitehaven Beach. Or drop the kids off at fun-for-kids central, the Kids Club, while you ferry to Dent Island for lunch.
Early risers, start day five with a walk up to the top of the island. Pause to reflect on this perfect family break while you drink in the tropical island scenery. Until next time!
(We haven’t even touched on the pragmatic and out of the box options for family dining that spring up at the end of every fun-filled day!)
