Hamilton Island

A trip to Hamilton Island takes you to a car-free destination mostly covered in bushland.
Hamilton Island is known for wildlife, adventure, and beaches. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, relax and rejuvenate at Spa Wumurdaylin, join the crowd at Go-Kart Racing Track, and make a trip to Passage Peak.

To plan Hamilton Island vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Gateway to the Whitsundays

Very much a town with an emphasis on the tropical lifestyle, Airlie Beach offers exotic surroundings with palm trees and charming, sandy beaches.
When in Airlie Beach, make a side trip to see Daydream Island Living Reef in Daydream Island, approximately Daydream Island away. Next up on the itinerary: get some thrills on the water with a speed boat tour, view the masterpieces at Above & Below Photography Gallery, see the world from above with a helicopter tour, and relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas.
