Getting To Hamilton Island
When planning a trip to the Whitsundays, it's a fun idea to spend some time on island resorts such as the beautiful Hamilton Island. Many travelers begin their adventure in Airlie Beach, mainly because this tourist town on the mainland is easily accessible and has lots of amenities available. But Hamilton Island unites the convenience of a modern town with the magical atmosphere of island life!
Hamilton Island has its own airport, so you can fly directly there from Sydney, Brisbane, or Melbourne. You can also catch a boat from Airlie Beach to Hamilton Island daily. Many people visit the island as a day trip from Airlie Beach, but spending a few days on Hamilton Island is an enchanting experience that you should definitely try to make time for!
About Hamilton Island
Hamilton Island is one of Australia's most sought-after and premier resort islands. Unlike Airlie Beach, the Whitsundays' most popular destination, it has the charm and appeal of tropical island life, yet it still has lots of modern amenities. Hamilton Island is surrounded by the turquoise Coral Sea and the Great Barrier Reef, and there are endless opportunities to snorkel, explore, and try water sports around the island. It's also home to one of the Whitsundays' best beaches: Catseye Beach.
Hamilton Island also offers 60+ fun activities including 4X4 driving, mini-golf, paddleboarding, jet-skiing, and more. There are 9 epic bushwalking trails, many of which lead to spectacular lookouts. There is also a local wildlife center where you can mingle with some Aussie wildlife!
Prices On Hamilton Island
Hamilton Island is not Australia's cheapest destination, but if you're willing to spend a bit of money for a luxury experience, it's so worth it! Some tours and activities can be pricey, as it is a quality private resort and the island needs all its goods and materials delivered by ferry. The same can be said of the restaurants and bars, with a variety in pricing depending on where you eat, however, the island boasts options for every budget and need.
