Exploring the Beauty of Hamilton Island: A perfect Whitsunday destination

Nestled in the heart of the Whitsunday Islands, Hamilton Island is the ultimate getaway destination that offers a stunning combination of natural beauty and luxurious amenities. Often awarded as one of the best family holiday destination in Australia, Hamilton Island has something for everyone to enjoy.

Rachael, one of our newest member of Team Magnums recently spent the day on Hamilton Island, experiencing the Hamilton Island Freestyle Tour, thanks to the team at Cruise Whitsundays.

“It was really great to have complete freedom while on the island to do whatever we wanted. We loved One Tree Hill Lookout and the view in and around Catseye Beach. We also did the Passage Peak hike. This was definitely the highlight for me. It was a beautiful walk, with outstanding views at the end. I was surprised that we could even see Hill Inlet from the top!”

What’s included in the Hamilton Island Freestyle tour?

  • Scenic return cruise to Hamilton Island
  • Choice of spectacular island bushwalks
  • Lunch (there are two options, please discuss with our team when booking)
  • Full use of island shuttle bus, pool areas and Catseye Beach
  • Access to shops, galleries, boutiques and restaurants

Travelling onboard any Cruise Whitsundays tours is an enjoyable experience from start to finish, guaranteed. Checking in from the Port of Airlie terminal is easy and fuss-free and the facilities provided while waiting for the ferry are clean and comfortable. Did you know that the Port of Airlie terminal is only about 10 minute walk from Magnums?

Once on Hamilton Island, the team at Cruise Whitsundays provides each guest with a map of Hamilton Island. Many optional activities are also on offer while on the island, so make sure to check them out! To get you around the island, the island shuttle buses run all day.

While on the island, there are so many options! You can do as much or as little as you wish! 


Hamilton Island is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts with a vast range of outdoor activities on offer. You can explore the Island's lush tropical forests, hike up to the Island's highest peak, or take a stroll along the pristine beaches.


Wildlife and Nature

One of the best things about Hamilton Island is its natural beauty and wildlife. The Island is home to a rich variety of flora and fauna, including koalas and wallabies. You can visit the wildlife park, go on a guided bushwalk, or even spot whales and dolphins if you are lucky!



Where else but on Hamilton Island can you relax while surrounded by paradise? You can spend your days lounging on the beach, enjoying a spa treatment, or unwinding by the pool, knowing that time is on your side.

So what are you waiting for?

“We spent the day exploring the island and really enjoyed the freedom we had to just “go with the flow”.
