Hamilton Island is one of the cluster of 74 islands that make up the Whitsunday Islands scattered across the Great Barrier Reef. If you like to get your toes wet, Hamilton Island is a wonderful place to explore the crystal clear waters by SUP or kayak, or venture to the reef and nearby islands with your snorkel and fins. It is also home of the annual Hamilton Island Race Week, a favourite yachting event on the international sailing calendar. Hiring a golf buggy to explore the length of the island is considered an iconic, right of passage activity that everyone will love. Be sure to book your buggy ahead of time - this popular activity often has the buggies booked out months in advance!
