by James Wilkinson

Popular Queensland destination Hamilton Island has confirmed it is set to re-open its hotels and resort operations on August 1, 2020.

Hamilton Island CEO Glenn Bourke said the official re-opening will follow-on from a soft opening to Queensland guests of private holiday homes from June 27.

“Despite Hamilton Island undoubtedly enduring the most difficult months the business has ever experienced, we have seen overwhelming support from Australians wanting to visit our destination,” he said.

“Hamilton Island and our world-class resort qualia are looking better than ever and we look forward to guests being able to return and enjoy all that this spectacular destination has to offer.”

Alongside leisure stays, Bourke said Hamilton Island would be able to host both small and larger business events, with venues being able to accommodate up to 250 delegates.

Wayfarer recently filmed an episode of our popular destination-based TV show on Hamilton Island, and on the segment, host James Gregory Wilkinson showcases some fantastic things the destination has to offer, from luxury resort qualia to the Great Barrier Reef, the new ‘Heart Island’ suite and the annual Race Week sailing regatta.
