Hamilton Island Race Week

Hamilton Island Race Week is Australia’s most prestigious offshore yachting regatta, attracting both the local and international sailing community. An important annual event, Hamilton Island Race Week is celebrated across the island and uniquely at qualia with an exclusive series of lunches, chef's table dinners and masterclasses. The focal point for Race Week is the Marina Village, which is the perfect place to watch the yachts prepare to set sail, listen to the early morning race briefings and then enjoy the entertainment in the evenings.
