Hamilton Island: A Tropical Paradise

Escape from the hustle and bustle of mainland living, and unwind on Hamilton Island. As the largest inhabited island of the 74 Whitsundays, there is plenty of room for visitors to spread out and enjoy a serene retreat. Hamilton Island offers a truly tropical location, as the average temperature throughout the year is a comfortable 27.4 degrees Celsius. The island is surrounded by azure waters and includes many pristine sandy beaches. Best of all, many of the holiday rentals available throughout the island boast water views, which allows visitors to enjoy their surroundings without even leaving their room.

Water Activities Abound

Of course, being surrounded by water, water activities are a major part of the Hamilton Island’s lifestyle. Diving and snorkelling excursions allow you to take in the dramatic coral reef that encircles Hamilton Island; choose from a variety of guided tours, or head out on your own. Go just a little further to experience the world-renowned Great Barrier Reef in all of its glory. Sea kayaking, swimming, paddle boarding, parasailing, fishing and catamaran rides are some of the calmer options out on the clear water. For adrenaline junkies, rent a jet ski, and cruise through the water at high speeds.

Inland Activities Do Not Disappoint

If staying inland is more your calling, there is plenty to keep you busy on Hamilton Island. Check out Hamilton Island Golf Club, an 18-hole golf course that was designed by five-time British open winner Peter Thomson. Feeling adventurous? Bring along your hiking boots and take a walk through Hamilton Island's bush. There are pathways suitable for every skill level and many of the trails lead to scenic lookout points. Don’t forget to check out the Hamilton Island Wildlife Park. Get up close and personal with koalas and learn interesting facts about many of Australia's native species.

Romance on Hamilton Island

Make Hamilton Island your honeymoon or wedding destination, for romance in a truly Australian fashion. Bring along some champagne and take to one of the deserted or little-known beaches on the island for a sunset picnic. In the evenings, dress up and dine out at one of the many high-end dining establishments on Hamilton Island. Bommie Restaurant is a highly rated favourite and allows patrons to sample their signature food while overlooking the marina. Finally, if you are in need of some serious R and R, head over to one of Hamilton Island's spas for a couple's massage or one of the many body treatments on offer.

Take a Tour

If you don’t want to leave a single stone unturned on Hamilton Island, book one of the many tours available. Take in the Great Barrier Reef and all of the beautiful island scenery from above by booking a helicopter tour. For a closer look at the water, try out a Great Barrier Reef cruise; this option allows you to come face-to-face with many of the marine species that inhabit the surrounding waters. Fishing charters are available to those visitors who have always dreamt of hooking the catch of a lifetime.

Fantastic Stay - Highly Recommend

5 of 5
We had a recent stay at Kaylan arriving New Years Eve for 8 nights. I travelled with my 4 adult children and 2 of their partners. The layout, amenities and location of the house made it perfect for our stay. Evelyn the owner was an absolute delight to deal with and answered all my questions promptly. I can't wait to return and I am planning a girls trip this year.

Stunning Views

4 of 5
We had a great stay at this property everything from the laundry to the fully equipped kitchen was perfect for our family. The showerhead in the ensuite is rusted out and leaks i would recommend changing it. Unfortunately I couldn't give 5 stars as the customer service was lacking in some areas. Firstly the arrival valet guy was rude! Even though I changed our booking from 5 to 6 adding an extra child and having confirmation 2 months prior to arrival there still wasnt adequate transport upon arrival with the valet suggesting we leave someone behind and pick them up with our buggy great idea untill you have 2 adults 4 kids meaning leaving children unattended at the apartment to do that. The valet had to go back to get my husband left behind at the airport but he made sure i knew how displeased he was!! After that anytime i contacted or tried to contact the owner Caz she was rude in her response and wouldn't answer my calls. Disappointing way to end a beautiful holiday. Im sure the response will be "it was all in the guide" however after the arrival fiasco i dont think trying to confirm departure valet was unreasonable. Plus side Josie is nice and i should have just spoke with her. Stayed Jan 2018
