Getting to the Whitsunday islands
As a world class holiday destination, the Whitsundays is serviced by all major airlines and so getting to the region is the easy part of planning your holiday.
To cater for the huge amount of visitors each year, the Whitsundays offers daily flights into both the Whitsunday Coast (Proserpine) Airport and the Hamilton Island Airport and gives customers the choice to fly into their choice of airport.
As the gateway to the Whitsunday islands, many travellers choose to fly into and out of Airlie Beach via the Whitsunday Coast Airport, which requires a very quick bus transfer taking around 30 minutes.
Unlike this airport, the Hamilton Island Airport is actually located on the popular island itself which is ideal if you are planning to stay and holiday on Hamilton itself. (There are many accommodation options to choose from, just ask us.)
If you require a transfer to Airlie Beach however, you will need to catch the Cruise Whitsundays ferry to/from Hamilton Island to the mainland.
The main ferry terminal in the Whitsundays is located at the Port of Airlie Marina in Airlie Beach and offers daily transfers to Hamilton Island and Daydream Island Resort and Spa. There are also tour transfers to these islands as well as to Whitsunday Island (see enquire about these tours).
There are also Island Hopper Passes available and all ferries to Hamilton Island meet the scheduled flights.
