Blue Water, White Sand, and Unspoiled Bush - Getting Acquainted With Hamilton Island

Gateway to the Whitsunday Archipelago, Hamilton Island sits like an emerald in the aquamarine Coral Sea. Although a tourist magnet since the 1970s, it’s only since wine magnate Robert Oatley purchased the island in 2003 that it’s become a sought-after destination for well-heeled celebrities and ordinary families alike. With a commitment to sustainability, and a consummate balance of amenities and unspoiled nature, Hamilton Island is a singular tropical island destination.

Travel Tips - Getting the Most Out of Your Hamilton Island Vacation

Hamilton Island offers fine sand, clear aquamarine waters, and lush green foliage - just like most of the 74 Whitsunday Archipelago’s islands. Hamilton, however, is the only one with a wide choice of hotels and restaurants, and a sophisticated yet laid-back vibe. It’s easily reached by plane and boat, and is a perfect casting-off point for the Great Barrier Reef.
