This year-round, up-market retreat is the region’s largest inhabited island. While it may be the most built up, beyond its busy eastern shore it’s still largely as nature intended it with beaches, bays and verdant bushlands. You may be sharing the island with a few other people, but it should be easy to find your own hidden-away corner.
A stay on Hamilton Island can be as active or relaxed as you please, with a range of facilities and activities to suit all tastes. Hiking is a popular pastime, thanks to the network of trails covering the island; we highly recommend heading up to Passage Peak for unforgettable views. Another way to experience epic vistas of the surrounding islands and the Great Barrier Reef is by helicopter or seaplane. Back down at sea level, try sea kayaking or paddle-boarding, while keen golfers can tee-off at the 18-hole championship course on nearby Dent Island. If all that’s not enough, charter a fishing boat and catch your own supper, hire an ATV to explore the lesser-visited parts of the island or snorkel on the Hamilton Island Reef just off Catseye Beach.
The other islands of the Whitsundays are easily reached from Hamilton Island – charter a yacht and sail to hidden coves or hop on a high-speed catamaran and head to the world-famous Whitehaven Beach, a pristine, brilliant-white stretch of coast that’s protected as part of the Whitsunday Islands National Park. Hamilton Island is also within easy reach of the Great Barrier Reef, the largest of its kind on Earth and a bucket list diving destination. As an alternative to scuba diving, head to one of the floating reef platforms which have semi-submersible craft and an underwater observatory. It’s not all about high-octane adventure here – slow down the pace a little with a visit to one of the island’s world-class spas.
You really can’t go wrong wherever you choose to stay, thanks to its handful of high-quality accommodation options. Exquisite Qualia is a member of Luxury Lodges of Australia, a prestigious group of independently owned-and-managed hotels that provide guests with a real sense of place. Alongside the second-to-none service, the view is the hero here – each of the 60 private pavilions has wall-to-wall and floor-to-ceiling windows with uninterrupted views of the Coral Sea and the surrounding islands. If you’d rather step directly out on to one of Hamilton’s finest stretches of sand, the adults-only Beach Club is a perfect alternative, with rooms overlooking stunning Catseye Beach.
Self-catering is also an option and we particularly love the Yacht Club Villas. As the name suggests, these beautiful properties are situated near the acclaimed Hamilton Island Yacht Club, which hosts of one of Australia’s largest regattas, the Hamilton Island Race Week. The villas offer a luxurious home away from home with four bedrooms, four bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen and a landscaped garden. Guests also have complimentary use of a 4-seater golf buggy for the duration of their stay, making it easy to get around the island quickly and easily.
Hamilton Island’s airport, which is also known as the Great Barrier Reef Airport, is the only airfield in the Whitsunday Islands that caters for larger jets. It is easily reached from Sydney, Brisbane, Cairns and Melbourne. Simply contact our team and we can arrange everything you need to charter a private jet to Hamilton Island.
