BYO Fish Requirements

Taste the island life! 

So you have had a great day on the water fishing with Topnotch Game Fishing & you would like one of the restaurants to cook up your catch of the day. And why not? After all, you are on holiday! We have found that all the restaurants on the island can cook up your catch for a small fee. We advise you to contact the restaurant of choice to find all the required information, and they will walk you through their process. Usually, the chefs recommend the fish be dropped off at the restaurant by 5:00 pm & presented at a very cool temperature. They will also ask you to sign a waiver form as well.

Cashless Island

Another very helpful island guest information and recommendations hot tip!!! This island is pretty much cashless now after the covid-19 event in 2020. The Westpac bank has closed down as of early December 2021, and the ATM. Although, the Hamilton Island Marina Tavern only accepts cash in the upstairs gaming area. You can roughly get cash out up to the value of $200.00. Note that nowhere on the island allows you to buy food using cash as payment. If you arrive at the island with cash and wish to use it, you can always go to the Hamilton Island Post Office and obtain a gift Master Card. They cost approximately $6.00 & you can put $500.00 on the card to be used swiping for purchases.

*** Note that the Hamilton Island Post Office does not open on the weekends or public holidays.
