Tour Hamilton Island

Hamilton Island

Level with Long Island, but on the outside of the Whitsunday Passage is Hamilton Island , the most famous of the Whitsunday Islands. Known as a world class island paradise, Hamilton Island in the Australian Whitsundays is a perfect place for a vacation.

As the second largest inhabited member of the Whitsundays, it features numerous opportunities for diving and sailing experiences as well as dining and shopping.

Visitors can arrive to Hamilton Island by air, as it has the only Whitsunday airport large enough to handle commercial airplanes, and they can also arrive by ferry. Hamilton Island gained prominence in the media recently through a world-wide contest called “The Best Job in the World.”

This is a privately owned island with an airport offering commercial flights to and from Brisbane, Townsville, Cairns , Brampton Island, Sydney and Melbourne. Hamilton Island has a number of accommodation options for different budgets.
