Hamilton Island

Description

Hamilton Island is the largest inhabited island of the Whitsunday Islands in Queensland, Australia. It is positioned approximately 887 kilometres (551 mi) north of Brisbane and 512 kilometres (318 mi) south of Cairns. It is also the only island in the Great Barrier Reef with its own commercial airport, with short direct flights from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Cairns. Hamilton Island, like most in the Whitsunday group, was formed as sea levels rose creating numerous drowned mountains that are situated close to the east coast of Queensland.

We stopped at Hamilton Island on our Three Island Trip with Cruise Whitsundays. Hamilton Island is very busy and has its own airport where there are about five flights per day. It has a very short runway and it is the main airports for Airlie Beach - a ferry runs from Hamilton Island to Airlie Beach daily. We had about two hours on Hamilton Island which included our lunch (part of the tour). The lunch venue was about 200 metres from the ferry terminal which was a pleasant walk past the restaurants and shops on this side of the island.  

We did not have time to catch the bus around the island after lunch so our guide suggested walking over the hill to the resort area. This was well worth the effort - beautiful tropical gardens, huge resort pools, various eating area, and a lovely beach with amazing blue water.
