Dent Island – Whitsundays: A No Golf Day on a Golf Island

Dent Island - Whitsundays

View of Hamilton Island from Dent Island

Did you know that one of the 74 islands in the Whitsunday is a Golf Club? But if you are not really a golfer, keep on reading. Visiting Dent Island does not need to be just for the golfers (If you are though, go for it, enjoy a game). The golf is in fact called the Hamilton Island Golf Club as it is accessible via ferry from Hamilton Island.

If, like me, you are not a golfer, I highly suggest lunch. The package includes the ferry, a delicious two-course meal and a buggy tour of the back nine to admire the view. You will need to book ahead as, rightly so, it is quite a popular activity.


Seriously, don’t miss out on this relaxing experience. The view is stunning and the food top-notch. Oh, and the drinks, of course…..

The departure is from Hamilton Island marina and the trip lasts about 10 minutes. On arrival to Dent Island, a shuttle took us to the clubhouse. We started with a self-driven guided buggy tour of the back nine. We followed the guide in our own little buggy and admired the truly breathtaking view. The 360 view of the ocean and nearby islands is a feast for the eyes. From the intense sea blue to the gliding boats, it makes a definite great photo spot. This is a great location to see Hamilton Island, Whitsunday Island and many more.

After this grand tour, the sea breeze opened our appetite and we enjoyed a great meal. The food was really good and the site amazing.


Pro tip: If you are visiting between June and September, the island is a great place to spot the whales. Keep an eye on those beautiful giants!


Overall, this was a relaxing day surrounded by a superb view and a nice sea breeze. Check out the video on Youtube if you want to know more.


Don’t forget to book your day out!

Until next time travel safe and enjoy this beautiful country!
