Hamilton Island Whitsundays

Hamilton Island is simply Australia’s favourite wedding destination whether it is for two people with the sand beneath their feet on Whitehaven Beach or at one of the island locations with catering for up to 200 guests.

Located in the heart of the Whitsunday group of islands, Hamilton is the only island with a variety of hotels and apartments to suit all tastes and budgets and, being a large resort has every activity and facility imaginable. It’s also the only island with an airport catering for direct commercial flights (at least 48 flights per week).

Just off the Queensland Coast and at the edge of the Great Barrier Reef, over 70% of the island has been preserved in its natural state so there are many coral-fringed beaches, unspoilt nature trails and secluded hideaways. There are more than 40 activities on the island, in and on the water or in the air… and it’s also the perfect place to just do nothing at all.

For those looking to marry on the island, the simplest, private ceremonies can be arranged, but for couples inviting guests, Hamilton is ideal because of the range of accommodation and activities to choose from, especially guests with children. Couples can have the total privacy of the Beach Club and the guests can have a holiday!


While there are six styles of accommodation, couples looking for an exclusive retreat should choose the Beach Club on Catseye Beach or the more affordable, free-standing Palm Bungalows, which have garden privacy. The Beach Club is 5-star boutique beachfront hotel with a private ‘infinity’ pool and the club lounge for drinks and snacks. The Beach Club was designed for adults and does not cater for children.


There are, naturally, numerous dining choices on Hamilton offering take-away, casual or fine dining. Two of the best restaurants are the Beach House and the Outrigger & Mariners Seafood Restaurant. Couples may choose to dine under the stars or have a gourmet picnic hamper prepared for a picnic on a deserted beach.
