We recognise the need to stay abreast of what our guests want and with the growing prevalence of social media it was a natural progression for us.’

Sophie Baker, Hamilton Island’s Senior Communications Manager said the Island also wanted to support Tourism Australia’s aspirations to make Australia the world’s most talked about holiday destination.

This advocacy is both authentic and far-reaching. By giving our guests complimentary Wi-Fi access we’re helping them to share their stories and promote Hamilton Island and Australia to the world.’

Guests staying in a Hamilton Island Holiday Home also receive complimentary Wi-Fi accessible at the same locations. The Wi-Fi packages have an expiration period of four day but guests can request a further complimentary 400MB after the initial package has expired.

For day visitors or guests staying privately on the Island, there is a new, generous Wi-Fi purchasing option. A 2GB broadband package will cost just AUD$25 with a four day validity period allowing guests to access high volume internet content, including downloads and streaming.
