Featuring a sparkling water playground and endless entertainment on and off shore, Hamilton Island is a paradise for kids.

Ideally located amongst the beautiful Whitsunday Islands, here there truly is something for everyone. 

Go-Kart Racing

Whether you’re 9 or 79, Go-Karting is fun for everyone.

With views of the water and Hamilton Island’s tropical scenery, it’s a unique go-karting experience. And for the daredevils, this activity is sure to get your heart racing - karts can go up to 45 kilometres an hour.

Single and double karts are available, so kids can ride by themselves or as passengers. Kids must be 4 years or older to ride in the double karts.

You’ll find Go-Kart Racing at Palm Valley, so take the free orange or purple shuttle bus. 

9-pin bowling

Before there was 10 pin bowling, there was 9 pin bowling. And as with most things, you can’t beat the original.

Every day between 1:30pm and 9:00pm, the 9-pin bowling alley is a popular place for kids and adults alike. The bowling alley is complete with bumpers, ramps and a games arcade. There’s even a bar for the adults!

It makes for a great family activity after dark; the bowling lanes are lined with neon lights and the bowling pins glow in the dark.

Mini Golf 

Before they’re ready to take on the championship course on Dent Island, Mini Golf is the perfect place for kids to start.

Entry includes all the equipment you need - just bring a hat, sunscreen and a bottle of water.

Clownfish Club 

Hamilton Island offers a kids club packed with activities so you can enjoy some down time while the kids have a fun-filled day on the island. 

Kids from 6 weeks to 14 years are welcome to join in on the fun. You can choose from half day or full day sessions.

Activities vary, so ensure your kids have sunscreen on and pack a hat and change of clothes.

Book directly with the Clownfish Club on arrival.


Hamilton Island’s beautiful bushwalks are free, fun and beautiful. Spend valuable time as a family during the hike past tall trees, stunning views and endless picture perfect natural scenes.
