Packing for your trip is an exciting but sometimes stressful part of travelling. We thought we’d share our Hamilton Island expertise and compile a check list of essentials. 

Everything to slip, slop and slap

There’s no vacation from sun safety! Pack sunscreen, hats and your stylish sunglasses to keep safe and comfortable during your stay with us.


Make sure to pack your chargers for the devices you can’t live without. Free wifi is available in the WAHI Guest Lounge for your convenience. 


There’s no need for steady hands or selfie sticks when you have a tripod. If you have one, be sure to pack it. It’s the best way to get the perfect photo of all of Hamilton Island’s famous photo opportunities.

Comfy clothes

One of the best ways to get around the island is on foot. Pack your walking shoes and some comfy clothes for ultimate relaxation.


This is possibly the most important item on the list. From swimming at Catseye Beach to the WAHI pool and spa, you’ll want your swimmers. Towels are available to borrow from reception, so no need to pack one.

Should you forget anything or need to restock your supplies, some items are available from reception and there is a general store on the island.
