Hamilton Island – Family Holiday

Cherry, Tiger, Daddy and Me just arrived home for the most amazing 10 days away in tropical paradise… I could not recommend a more incredibly beautiful, relaxed, fun and safe destination for a family holiday, of any age than Hamilton Island on the Whitsundays, Queensland. Daddy and Me have visited Hamilton Island a few times, (before we were parents), and this was by far our favourite experience.

The weather was absolutely perfect – 30 degrees everyday, not too hot and defiantly not too cold for a swim, any time of the day. In fact I packed cardigans thinking the evening might get a little chilli but we never even wore them.

The island was very kids friendly. Cherry and Tiger loved the pool by the beach where they could splash in the shallow waters while I read magazines and Daddy practiced his underwater laps.

    Hi there,

    What a beautiful holiday you have had! Thank you for sharing it! I was wondering where did you stay at? I love the view from the balcony! And is the kids club within the accommodation facility or separate? Many thanks,


    • Hi Zerina, we stayed at the Whitsunday Holiday Apartments. The kids club is separate but just a 2 minute walk from where we were staying. The Reef Hotel is also an excellent option which is right next door with the same incredible views. I highly recommend a family trip there! 🙂
