There are three ways to arrive to the newly re-opened InterContinental Hayman Island Resort: by helicopter, seaplane or onboard a luxury yacht sipping flutes of sparkling wine, while enjoying light canapés. Fly into Sydney Airport and connect to Hamilton Island Airport. Each mode of transportation immerses guest in the breathtaking natural beauty of the Whitsundays, part of the Cumberland Islands, located off the coast of Queensland.

Activities range from standup paddle boarding to a full day Outer Reef dive and snorkel excursion. Since this is one of the closest islands to The Great Barrier Reef, seeing one of the Seven Wonders of the Natural World is a must.

Hayman Island’s PADI Open Water Dive course helps guests get certified.
