Tie the knot in the Whitsunday Islands

Part of the dreamy Whitsunday Islands, Hamilton Island is a tropical paradise off the coast of Queensland. Set in the Coral Sea and fringed by the Great Barrier Reef, there's kaleidoscopic snorkeling and diving on offer. Golf buggies are the main form of transportation which gives Hamilton Island a laid-back vibe. With some properties sleeping up to 18 guests, Hamilton Island vacation rentals are perfect for family reunions, group getaways and tropical weddings.

Things to do

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 gleaming sand and bottle-blue water, it's regularly crowned one of the most beautiful beaches on the planet. 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?

Activities

Beach-hopping on Hamilton Island

Weather

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.
