Our Next Stop: Hamilton Island

Our Next Stop: Hamilton Island

Sitting still and working full-time is getting harder by the day. We’ve spent less than a week on the road since the year began and often we dream of relaxing by an idyllic beach sipping on cocktails.

Fortunately our next adventure is just under two weeks away – a three night jaunt to Australia’s Hamilton Island on the Great Barrier Reef.

You may know Hamilton Island for running the Best Job in the World promotion back in 2008 and we’re extremely excited to be visiting this little piece of paradise in our very own backyard.

Where We’ll Be Staying

Reef View Hotel - Hamilton Island

We’ll be spending our three nights on Hamilton Island at the 4-star Reef View Hotel with views of the Coral Sea and nearby Whitsunday Island.

It’ll be the perfect place to base ourselves and explore the island although it may be difficult to drag us away from the hotel with Catseye Beach located directly opposite and a large number of hotel features including water sports available to us.

What We’ll Be Doing

Whitehaven Beach

Our three-day itinerary is jam-packed full of fun activities including:

  • Exploring the spectacular Great Barrier Reef with Fantasea Adventures.
  • Spending an afternoon on the award-winning Whitehaven Beach.
  • Eating breakfast with the koalas at Wild Life Hamilton Island.
  • Enjoying one of Hamilton Island’s beautiful sunsets on a sea kayak while sipping on a glass of sparking wine.
  • Relaxing at one of the island’s beaches or pools and simply doing nothing at all!

And that’s just the beginning! Tennis, beach sports and perhaps a scenic helicopter ride over Heart Reef are all on the agenda and we can’t wait to share all of these adventures with you on Don’t Ever Look Back over the next few weeks!

How We’ll Be Getting Around

Golf Buggy on Hamilton Island

Cars are prohibited on Hamilton Island and there’s only one way to get around… on our very own golf buggy!

We’ll be taking a self-drive tour of the island on our first day and will just enjoy cruising around from point to point in true island style. It might sound crazy but driving a golf buggy around Hamilton Island is one of the things we’re most looking forward to!

Looking at all of this, no wonder we’re getting excited about our trip to Hamilton Island!
