Recognised as one of the most luxurious resort destinations on the Great Barrier Reef, Hamilton Island is a very good example of how the Great Barrier Reef can commercially match any tropical paradise in the world. There are hotel suites, luxury apartments, private villas, self-contained suites and bures with eating available at everything from an a la carte restaurant to a coffee shop, seafood restaurant, pizza parlour, snack bar and cocktail bar. The Hamilton Island marina The activities range from snorkelling to reef fishing, sailboard riding, tennis, squash, walking trails and the Hamilton Island Fauna Park with koalas, kangaroos, emus, wombats and a variety of birdlife. There is also a church (people can get married on the island), a museum which boasts the world's largest private collection of motorcycles, and still over 80 per cent of the island remains in its natural state apart from walking trails to such delightfully out of the way destinations as Coral Cove, Passage Peak and Escape Beach. It is a comment on the current status of Hamilton Island (and the level of development which has occurred) that while it is not the largest island in the group it is the only island to have an airport capable of handling wide bodied jet aircraft.
