For most of us Hamilton Island is a place of rest and relaxation, around the pool, in the tropical blue waters or with sundowner cocktails and a barbeque on the balcony of your luxe accommodation. All perfectly okay and a great way to experience the Whitsundays at their best. But why not take it to the next level with this collection of inside tips and local knowledge from the team at Whitsunday Holidays?

Thanks to the open spaces and views from the decks and balconies of our Hamilton Island Accommodation you don’t have to leave home to enjoy a seafood feast in balmy surrounds. One of our Hamilton Island favourites is Fishi. Choose from fresh fish, whole fish, fresh prawns, wild caught seafood in season and more. You can pre-order a seafood platter and Fishi will deliver it to the island’s IGA for you to collect when convenient. Click here to explore the Fishi menu and pre-order arrangements.
Hamilton Island has more places to shop and stock than any other island in the Whitsundays. Take advantage of the plentiful supplies available at the IGA Supermarket and Bottle Shop.
There’s simply no better way to experience a spectacular tropical sunset than out on the water. Take a peek at our sunset cruises and let us take care of all the arrangements. Another must-do while you are here is a tour of Whitehaven Beach. This pure, pristine environment is protected by the Whitsunday Islands National Park and has been voted the world’s top eco-friendly beach. Check out our full list of Hamilton Island tours,
including Great Barrier Reef and helicopter adventures, here.
A visit to Hamilton Island Wildlife Park is an exciting and fun family adventure. The park’s Koalas are a popular attraction, especially now with the recent addition of this baby Joey. Aww. Hamilton Island Wildlife Park is also open for light lunches and snacks and drinks. So take your time and enjoy getting up close to Australia’s iconic wildlife.
Getting around Hamilton Island is all about buggies and kids love them! Most Whitsunday Holidays properties include at least one complimentary buggy (be sure to check your booking). For large groups, you can order an extra set of wheels. Just email: [email protected]
Another of our favourite things to do is sunset cocktails on One Tree Hill. An exquisite and romantic way to serenade the end of another wonderful day on Hamilton Island. Check it out here.
