"We had a sea view room and this was excellent, we enjoyed sitting on the couch with our coffee and watching the ferries go past. We liked having our own kitchen facilities, though the stove top, toaster and kettle were looking pretty dated. Wonderful staff that were always helpful."…"

A lovely private island with a bustling marina complex. Lots of restaurants but need to book early - ideally before you go. We struggled to get reservations so are in the hotel most nights. There is a Hamilton Island app that I recommend downloading

A relaxing, car-free, dog-free holiday place, beautifully maintained with lush vegetation. Birds and some marsupials to spot, and you can wade or snorkel in the sea at Catseye Beach, while the fish swim around you.
