Hamilton Island Through Instagram

Hamilton Island Through Instagram

We’ve been wanting to do a post like this for a while and finally we’ve got enough photos on Instagram to be able to do it!

Australia’s Hamilton Island was one of our favorite travel destinations (as we’ve probably already told you!) so it’s a delight to be able to share these photos with you.

Here is the best of Hamilton Island through Instagram!

Hamilton Island, here we come! Beautiful morning above the clouds...

Early morning flights are always painful but they’re made slightly easier when you know you’re going somewhere great. Plus, watching the sun rise from above the clouds is a pretty cool sight.

Soon after arriving on Hamilton Island Marina Village - beautiful!

We had soon touched down and since it was too early to check in to our hotel, the two of us headed down to Marina Village to grab some lunch. This is one of the first water views we saw at Hamilton Island and it just got better…


While we were eating we were joined by this clever creature. Amy managed to snap this stunning photo of a cockatoo in front of the Main Street bakery – not a bad picture for an iPhone 3GS!

Risotto from the Manta Ray Cafe

Later that night Amy enjoyed this delicious risotto at the Manta Ray Cafe.

Our first day trip was out to Fantasea Reefworld to go snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef. Unfortunately we couldn’t take the phone under the water but you can check out our underwater photos and Great Barrier Reef video to see more.

The following day we ventured out to world-famous Whitehaven Beach and spent an afternoon enjoying the pristine white sands and turquoise waters.

Our final morning on Hamilton Island was spent watching the sun rise over Catseye Beach and eating our breakfast with koalas at the local wildlife park. The perfect end to a perfect vacation!
