Choose from standard hotel rooms, deluxe self-contained apartments or a five star luxury 'Beach Club' and enjoy anything from nature walks and snorkeling to sea-kayaking, dolphin and whale watching and scenic helicopter flights.

Exploring the island

Many people consider Hamilton as more of a small-town than an island resort however at over three square miles in size, and with 70% of the island still untouched bushland, you will discover that modern conveniences do not compromise or detract from the idyllic location and stunning views across the cobalt Coral Sea.

With the lively marina serving as the hub of 'island life' there is a distinctively relaxed nautical feel that attracts keen yachtsmen and domestic and international tourists alike.
