Cruising to Hamilton Island, Queensland

Part of the Great Barrier Reef, Hamilton Island is the perfect holiday destination for those seeking idyllic beaches, stunning marine life and a tropical paradisical atmosphere. What's more, as the most developed of the Whitsunday Islands, Hamilton offers everything you could need in terms of restaurants and other amenities, yet still manages to appear unspoilt.

The majority of the resorts can be found on a small strip towards the northern end of the island, leaving the entire southern region untouched. As a result, the dense jungle that covers this part of Hamilton remains full of wildlife and is truly thrilling to explore.

That said, most people come here not for the land, but for the many wonders that are waiting to be discovered beneath the waves. Naturally, the Great Barrier Reef is a natural phenomenon that requires no introduction, and is arguably the greatest scuba diving and snorkelling spot on the planet.

With colourful coral reefs and a breathtaking array of marine wildlife to explore, this really is a place that no visitor will be in a rush to forget. However, if you'd rather stay on the surface of the water then you'll have the chance to take part in a range of great activities such as sailing, kayaking and fishing.
