Hamilton Island was named after Lady Hamilton after it was discovered by Captain Cook in the year 1770. It used to be an uninhabited island 8,000 yrs. ago, back when the Ngaro aboriginal tribe used to live there. In 2003, the stunning and enchanting island was bought by a world famous winemaker, Robert Oatley who is responsible for developing one third of the island with hotel chains, diverse restaurants, and bars.
The enchanting island exudes a natural beauty with a surreal back draft of blue crystalline waters, pure white sand combined with a clear, blue skies, and serene atmosphere. It owes its natural allure to the tropical climate and its strategic position right off the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland. If you want to have a temporary escape from the busy and hurried life in the city or a getaway off an exotic island, Hamilton Island would be the best destination for you.
Hamilton Island boasts of being the only island possessing its own commercial jet airport with “buggies” being the common mode of transportation if you want to roam around the exotic island. The island complex is adorned with 60-architect designed luxurious pavilions nestled in a forest of glum along with dainty palm trees. The famous accommodation around the beautiful island is the “qualia”, which came from a Latin word which means “a collection of deeper sensory experiences.”
