Hamilton Island Whitsundays - QLD

Located in the heart of the Whitsunday Islands, about 900 km (560 miles) north of Brisbane, Hamilton Island is a haven for Australians and a host of overseas visitors.

Hamilton is the only Queensland island with a modern jet airport. The whole island is a world class resort and includes a village of boutique shops, eight swimming pools and nine restaurants from light snacks to fine dining at the Outrigger. At any one time the island hosts about two thousand people and around two hundred boats in its world class marina. There's a fifty acre fauna park with kangaroos and koalas and a dolphin pool. There are around one hundred and fifty species of birds and eucalypt bush walks to mountain peaks of 360 degree island views.

Hamilton Island has fringing coral reef, with the best snorkelling and diving at Catseye Beach. You can also visit the Outer Reef by high speed catamaran or helicopter. Hardy Reef is a particularly popular spot for diving or reef viewing. The Island has its own dive shop and registered diving school. Luxury dive cruises are available.

Hamilton is a boating paradise. Charter any kind of vessel from a bareboat to a luxury five star ocean cruiser complete with on board chef and crew. Make sure you visit Whitehaven Beach on Whitsunday Island. The sand is snow white and ninety-nine percent pure silica.

Enjoy a fantastic variety of sporting and leisure activities - learn to scuba dive. Swim in the largest swimming pool in the southern hemisphere. The night- life is legendary.
