Located in the heart of the Whitsunday Islands and surrounded by coral-fringed beaches, Hamilton Island is the ideal Great Barrier Reef stopover. Serviced by daily flights to the Australian mainland, the marina offers fashion boutiques, restaurants, safari tours, tennis courts, leisure facilities and Great Barrier Reef cruises and diving excursions. The marina is being expanded to include an extra seven 40m berths. The new Great Barrier Reef Yacht Club situated at the northern leads to the harbour is due for completion in 2009. This state of the art facility will be the centre piece of Hamilton Island Marina.
