What to Expect

This full-day island getaway provides the opportunity to discover why Hamilton Island is such a sought-after holiday destination in Queensland's tropical north.


Enjoy a day at your leisure to explore everything Hamilton Island has to offer, including the island's natural beauty with one of the many stunning bushwalks, relax on the famous Catseye Beach, browse the boutique shops and galleries, or cool off in the beachside resort pool - the choice is yours! Top off your experience soaking in the harbour views as you enjoy a pub-style lunchat the Marina Tavern.


Set within the stunning Whitsundays region and in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef, Hamilton Island is a nature lover's paradise and offers a balmy, tropical climate year-round. Start your day cruising through the 74 islands towards Hamilton Island, where you are met with amazing scenery at every turn. Use the island shuttle to easily make your way around, from the white sands of Catseye Beach to the scenic views from the lookout at One Tree Hill. The web of walking trails can take you exploring even further, past secluded bays, or to the highest point of Passage Peak. If shopping is more your style, there is a range of lovely boutiques, gift shops, and an art gallery showcasing renowned Australian artists. Hamilton Island is also the ideal spot to laze the day away by the beach or pool under the swaying palm trees. 


The island is not short of things to see and do, offering a range of optional water and land-based activities at an extra cost. From racing your friends on the go-kart track, zooming around the waterways on a jet-ski, to indulging your senses at the day spa or snapping a photo of a koala at the Wildlife Park, your day can be as action-packed or as slow as your heart desires.

The Whitsundays enjoys a tropical climate of hot summers, warm winters and bright spring and autumn days. Average daily temperatures range from around 22 to 23 degrees celsius in the winter months of June and July, and up to 29 to 30 degrees celsius in December and January during the height of summer. Water temperatures remain a welcoming 25 degrees celsius most of the year round.


The tropical wet season occurs from January to March when days can be steamy, and the summer heat is often broken by tropical showers.


Marine stingers may be present in the waters year round, with the higher risk season during October – May.  During this period, jellyfish are prevalent in the waters around the mainland, islands and have occasionally been found out on the reef.  It is recommended that our guests wear stinger suits which are provided free of charge on our Great Barrier Reef and Whitehaven Beach tours.

Home to an explosion of colourful marine life, the Whitsundays’ natural environment is truly special. Offshore you’ll find six of the world’s seven species of turtle, along with delicate coral reefs and migrating humpback whales, who frequent the area from June to October. Thirty-two of the islands are protected as the Whitsunday Islands National Park – including Whitsunday, Hook, Hamilton and Hayman – but it remains our responsibility to reduce the human impact as much as possible.

  • Leave shells and plants where you find them: the only thing you should take with you is your rubbish
  • Don’t rush to flush and take short showers: fresh water is precious on the islands
  • Never touch or stand on coral, even if you are wearing flippers
  • Never touch marine life (fish, turtles etc) – human bacteria can make them sick
