HAMILTON ISLAND FACILITIES
From the Marina to Catseye Beach is just a short 5 minute stroll or buggy ride. Here all resort facilities are for everyone’s use - even if you are renting the house. Don’t forget to look out for the activity ‘happy hours’ !
A daily activities itinerary is available from the resort and include snorkelling, diving, catamaran sailing, sea kayaking adventures, sailing, jet skiing, tube riding for the kids, mini golf for the family, go karting, target sports, breakfast with the koalas, bingo by the pool, gym workouts, beach volleyball, or even some trivia.
But if all this looks too exhausting you can just pull up a deck bed, relax by the pool and read that book you’ve been meaning to finish or simply enjoy a drink at the swim-up bar .
For the more energetic, there is always a bushwalk along the many trails, where you can discover the breathtaking views or even rest on one of the many secluded beaches. As more than 80% of Hamilton Island is natural tropical bushland, home to Australian lorikeets, cockatoos, wallabies and possums, it is perfect for taking a bushwalk to discover some of these Whitsunday wonders!
With the marina and resort only minutes away, there are over 16 restaurants and takeaway outlets to choose, including a bakery, fish and chip shop, Marina Tavern, pizza and even an ice creamery. You can enjoy a cappuccino at the Marina Deli or some of the freshest seafood and a superb sunset dinner at Beaches Restaurant . There are dinner cruises and a selection of Italian and Chinese restaurants to make your holiday memorable.
Toucan Tango Café & Bar has a wonderful range of children’s meals and is great value for the whole family.
A general store is available for most food items as is the Bakery for bread and light snacks..
However, nothing is stopping you from bringing your own food onto the island, except for baggage restrictions. There are 2 fridges in the house so plenty of room for storage of your food and drink.
For families, on-line shopping is also available from Woolworths at Cannonvale and IGA at Airlie Beach. Both stores will deliver your goods to the house, and IGA will even take orders with cold and perishable included e.g. meat and salads. A barbeque on the deck is the perfect way to soak in the view , so come on - are your bags packed!
Air Whitsunday Seaplanes - Whitsundays
ABOUT AIR WHITSUNDAY
Air Whitsunday has evolved since its conception back in 1973 - with the energy and enthusiasm generated by Kevin and Sue Bowe – to provide an unsurpassed seaplane service to the region.
We have built upon our very beginning`s – still with the same intention - of providing you the opportunity to glimpse the enormity of the Great Barrier Reef; stretching over a curved horizon; to the glistening white silica sands of the famous Whitehaven Beach - all from the ultimate perspective of seaplane comfort.
Over the history of our 37 years trading we have been a growing, changing entity with a focus that has remained steadfast in providing specifically tailored scenic flights and Reef experience tours that take full advantage of this stunning area.
The discovery of “Heart Reef” in 1975 (now a Whitsunday feature of the international tourism market) by one of Air Whitsunday`s very own pilots has provided a focal point to our popular scenic flights and showcases the diversity of the Great Barrier Reef. Aptly the Heart Reef is a favourite for brochure shots and other colour promotional material for the Whitsundays.
What makes your seaplane experience with us so unique is the ability to provide – YOU – our guest, with some of the most breathtaking and memorable visuals provided by ‘Mother Nature’ from a bird`s eye perspective.
