Book in for this super-luxe offshore keelboat regatta in Queensland’s prettiest locale

Hamilton Island Race Week is a firm fixture on Australia’s festival calendar – and for good reason.

This luxe offshore keelboat regatta (read: week-long yacht party) is perfectly situated on the edge of the Great Barrier Reef, on Hamilton Island in the Whitsundays. With accompanying feasts, fashion shows, food markets, cocktail parties and even beach yoga, it’s safe to assume this event isn’t just about watching boats sail through perfect azure waters – though that is a plus.

The event schedule is to be released soon, but keep in mind this event is so popular, the island sells out months in advance. Keep your eyes peeled on their website in the meantime.
