Travel Brochure
Set in the heart of the Whitsunday Islands and close to the world renown Great Barrier Reef is Hamilton Island, a place to experience everything or enjoy doing absolutely nothing.

One of 74 tropical islands that lie between the Queensland Coast and the Great Barrier Reef, it is the largest inhabited island in the Whitsundays and the only island with an airport catering for direct commercial and charter flights.

There are hotel and apartment rooms to suit all tastes and budgets, plenty to do and all of it is surrounded by beautiful coral-fringed beaches. There are also plenty of kid activities and children 0 to 14 years stay for free when staying with parents at the Hamilton Island Resort (some conditions apply).

Over 80 per cent of Hamilton Island is still carefully preserved in its natural state so that visitors can continue to enjoy the pristine beauty of the island’s unspoilt nature trails, secluded hideaways and fabulous beaches.

Location: This is the main island in the Whitsunday Group.
Access: Ferry from Shute Harbour, direct flight from Sydney.
Population: The island can accommodate up to 5,000 people (this also includes residents).

In addition to our listed online travel guide information, contact the local tourism visitor centre for your destination for more attractions, tours, local maps and other information.
