The Location & Supporting Benefits: Hamilton Island is a popular tourist destination all year round. It is the largest inhabited island of the Whitsunday Islands in Queensland. It is positioned approximately 887 kilometres north of Brisbane and 512 kilometres south of Cairns.
It is also the only island in the Great Barrier Reef with its own commercial airport, with direct flights from Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Cairns. Hamilton Island is also served by ferry services, which carry only passengers. Private transport needs are mostly served by a fleet of golf buggies. A free public shuttle bus operates on the island serving major points of interest and accommodation sites.
Unlike most islands off the east coast of Australia, Hamilton Island is used almost exclusively for tourism. However, it is now catering for a growing number of residents, employees of the various businesses on the island, and people choosing to retire on the island. Hamilton Island State School caters for students from the Preparatory Year to Year 6. The school also offers a range of extra-curricular offerings. Approximately 20 teenagers commute to the secondary schools on the mainland, which is a short ferry trip away.
Net income approximately $215,000 + per annum
