Tee off at Hamilton Island Golf Club

Set in the Coral Sea, Whitsunday Islands National Park is sheltered by the mighty Great Barrier Reef. The park is made up of 74 hypnotically beautiful islands, fringed by white sandy beaches and lush rainforest. Don't miss the chance to daytrip to Whitehaven Beach.

With panoramic views over Dent Passage, Hamilton Island Golf Club is one of the world's most scenic places to tee off. After a leisurely game, why not enjoy sunset drinks at the clubhouse?

Dreamy Septembers in the Whitsundays

With sun-drenched days and very little rainfall, September is the best month to visit the Whitsundays. Humidity is low and temperatures hover around the low 80s, which makes it ideal for swimming, snorkeling and enjoying balmy sunsets. With sundrenched decks, breezy decor and sweeping ocean views, luxury Hamilton Island vacation rentals capture the spirit of the Whitsundays. While the weather is still gorgeous, the Whitsundays fill up with stingers from October to May so be prepared to wear a wetsuit if you're snorkeling or diving.

Fiery sunsets over the Coral Sea

Hamilton Island is one of 74 atolls in Queensland's Whitsunday archipelago. Entirely car free, the island is mostly covered by silvery bushland. Keep an eye out for local wildlife such as koalas, kangaroos, wallabies and kookaburras. Passage Peak is the highest point on Hamilton Island and offers sweeping views over the Coral Sea. If you can drag yourself out of bed and undertake the hike along the Passage Peak Scenic Trail by 5am, you'll be rewarded with one of Queensland's fieriest sunrises.
