Sydney to Airlie Beach/Whitsunday Islands


I am traveling with one other adult. We are flying to Sydney and then flying from Sydney to Hamilton Islands Airport (HTI). We are booking a three-day tour with AirlieBeach.com. We have never travelled to Australia before and I know that there are 74 Islands around the Whitsunday's. Can anyone give me advice about getting from the HTI airport to Abel Point Marina (where the tour departs)?

We are currently planning on taking a ferry from Hamilton Island Airport to Abel Point (I assume that's on the Airlie Beach mainland) and staying at a hostel. They next two nights we will be at a hostel with the touring company. Any information regarding ferries, nightlife, dining, tour packages, hostels, etc. would be most helpful.

Thanks in advance for your replies!
