The Beauty of Hamilton Island

AQUILA Hamilton Island

Hamilton Island is part of the Whitsunday Group of Islands right in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef. Surrounded by tropical islands fringed by coral reefs, marine life and pristine white beaches Hamilton island is the perfect gateway to explore the Great Barrier Reef and world-famous Whitehaven Beach.

Hamilton Island is the only island with its own airport and marina making it very accessible year round and lends itself to many celebrity visits and prestigious sporting, wellness and business events.  Development on the island is minimal. With the no-car policy making the golf buggies a refreshing and relaxing way to get around. Two thirds of the island is untouched to allow our guests to embrace the pristine natural beauty. Trails meander through tropical forests, along hidden coves, rocky outcrops and to high points to enjoy bird’s-eye views.
