Some prefer to enjoy Hamilton Island’s idyllic setting with a cocktail by the pool. Others, well, opt for a more ‘challenging’ getaway.

This month The Hamilton Island Endurance series concludes, with The Hamilton Island Triathlon on Saturday November 11 and the Whitehaven Beach Swim on Sunday November 12.

The triathlon will see athletes tackle a 750m swim in Catseye Bay, a 20km cycle around the southern part of Hamilton Island and a 5km run around the marina and resorts. The Junior Triathlon, open to children aged 4-14, will be held the following day on Sunday November 12. 

On the same day, The Whitehaven Beach Ocean Swim commences and is known to be one of Australia’s most beautiful ocean swims. It features a 750m or 2km swim and a 350m swim for the kids.

With events for both adults and kids alike, the Triathlon and Ocean Swim will be sure to challenge your skills and test your fitness levels to its limits, while allowing you to indulge in a fun-filled weekend away for the whole family!
