About Hamilton Island

Hamilton Island has a multitude of activities and is a delight to wander around. Stroll the Marina Village main street, visit the boutiques and galleries. Visit WILD LIFE Hamilton Island and get up close and cuddly with a koala, lounge beside the pools or relax on Catseye Beach. Or, get active and enjoy bowling, mini-golf or a go-kart challenge!


Hamilton Island Freestyle includes a return vessel to Hamilton Island and use of the island shuttle buses. Other than that, you're free to do what you want, when you want.

Optional activities at own cost.

The cruise vessel

Your day cruise vessel has air conditioned interior saloons and seating areas outside.

Food & Drink

Enjoy either a pub lunch at Marina Tavern or a multi choice lunch at Manta Ray Cafe. Both restaurants are family friendly and both overlook the marina.
