Commanding magnificent views south across the Coral Sea, Hayman Island is 294 hectares (726 acres) in area, 8 kilometres (5 miles) in circumference and is perfectly positioned on a two-kilometre crescent-shaped stretch of stunning white sand beach. It enjoys an ideal climate year-round: May–October (Winter/Spring) average temperature of 25°C/77°F, November–April (Summer/Autumn) average temperature of 31°C/88°F.

The most convenient way to travel to and from Hayman Island is via Great Barrier Reef Airport located on Hamilton Island.  Flights from Sydney are 2 hours 40 minutes. Alternative flights in and out of Proserpine and Mackay on the Queensland Coast are also available. Several international flights connect directly to Great Barrier Reef Airport on Hamilton Island through airports in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. Once on Hamilton Island, a fleet of luxury launches, seaplanes and helicopters transport guests to Hayman Island.
