Another 8 hours on a plane and we made it to Hamilton island. When we arrived at the airport we went to collect the luggage. There was no conveyobelt, just a truck that came with the bags and we collected them. Then we went to get the golf buggy. There are no cars. We went on one of the top 10 beaches in the world called "White Haven Beach". It was fantastic because the sand was white and the sea was turquoise. We also went snorkelling in the Great Barrier Reef. Its a very nice place!
"Perfectly situated on the edge of the Great Barrier Reef, amongst Queensland’s 74 Whitsunday Islands, Hamilton Island offers an experience like no other: glorious weather, azure waters, brilliant beaches, awe-inspiring coral reefs, fascinating flora and fauna, fine food and wines, and activities almost too numerous to mention.
Hamilton Island also welcomes new world-class facilities with the newly opened Hamilton Island Golf Club, the architectural wonder that is the multipurpose Hamilton Island Yacht Club and a host of new or refurbished Hotels and Resorts. We have put together our best Hamilton Island specials and holiday packages for you to book online right now. There is no better time to see this premier Australian Island Holiday Destination." - Luke Jenkinson.
