Hamilton Island
The largest of the Whitsunday Island resorts, Hamilton Island offers an experience like no other: beaches, coral reefs, fascinating flora and fauna, fine food and wines, and activities almost too numerous to mention.

Hamilton Island’s world-class facilities, the Hamilton Island Golf Club, the architectural wonder of the Hamilton Island Yacht Club, Spa Wumurdaylin, and a host of new or refurbished hotels and resorts make it a fresh and lively place for resort guests and day visitors. 70% of the island is national park, striking a balance between extensive holiday facilities and the island’s striking natural beauty.

Hayman Island
Hayman Island is the northern-most of the Whitsunday island resorts, the epitome of tropical paradise. Boasting one of The Leading Hotels of the World, Hayman is Australia’s most awarded private island destination.

Guests can select from a variety of activities from water sports to bushwalks to tours of the nearby Great Barrier Reef. By night, guests can relax with fine wine and award winning delicacies, in the luxury of this five star resort. The excellent snorkelling off the island’s northern beach, Blue Pearl Bay, makes it a popular spot for guests and day visitors alike.


Tropical North Queensland is the main gateway to the Great Barrier Reef and offers a number of options for snorkellers, divers and sun-lovers of all ages. Daytrips and sailing cruises depart from most major hubs along the coast and longer live-aboard expeditions leave Cairns and Port Douglas every week. If you’re a born castaway, Hinchinbrook Island is Australia’s largest island national park and a perfect place to seclude yourself away from mobile phones and modern day distractions.
