One of the world's most famous tropical destinations, Hamilton Island sits within the Whitsunday archipelago, a gorgeous chain of 74 islands. This is a place of sun, sand and the bluest sea, where visitors can immerse themselves in some of Mother Nature’s best work. And there are few better examples than breath-taking Hamilton Island.
What are the must-see attractions in Hamilton Island?
As the logical starting point for many excursions further afield in the Whitsunday Islands, Hamilton Island is seen by many as simply a launch pad for the wider Whitsunday experience rather than a destination in itself. This, however, could not be further from the truth, as Hamilton Island has more than enough activities and things to see to keep you coming back, year after year.
Given it's an island, it would be fair to say that many of Hamilton Island's activities revolve around the water, with stand up paddleboarding, snorkelling, parasailing, diving and sailing all available.
There's also minigolf, quad biking and a bowling alley, as well as a kid's club called the Clownfish Club that takes kids from 6 weeks to 14 years of age. Visit Hamilton Island Wildlife to marvel at some of Australia's most loved animals, or escape to the bush and enjoy over 20 km of walking tracks.
Fancy a game of golf? Then catch a boat across the channel to neighbouring Dent Island and play on one of Australia's finest 18 hole championship golf courses. You can also choose from a variety of air and sea tours to visit the other islands, go fishing or simply relax on the beach and revel in being in one of the planet's most beautiful locations.
Want more? There are year-round events like Hamilton Island Race Week yachting festival, Hilly Half Marathon, Great Barrier Feast and more to excite even the most jaded traveller.
