Hamilton Island holidays with the kids
Kids will love snorkelling, seaplane trips and hiking as much as adults, but Hamilton Island also offers activities aimed firmly at a family audience. Even novice swimmers can have a go at paddle boarding in the shallow waters off the beach. Or enjoy a family day at the beach swimming, paddling and making sandcastles.
WILD LIFE Hamilton Island is the area's best known wildlife park, where kids and their parents can meet cuddly koalas and learn about Australia's fascinating natural history. The park offers hands-on experiences throughout the day, so check the website for the latest on what's happening. For an experience to remember, why not book in to have breakfast with the koalas?
The island also has a ten-pin bowling alley, and kids of all ages will love the mini-golf too. Or what about a day at the karting track? Specially designed double buggies mean that kids can ride alongside parents.
Nightlife on Hamilton Island
Hamilton Island's nightlife scene is nicely laid-back. Most visitors choose to spend the evenings enjoying a drink as the sun sets over the Pacific ocean, or having a meal in one of the island's many fantastic restaurants.
Cruise companies, however, offer memorable sunset cruises with dinner aboard, allowing guests to admire the sunset and the islands from a different perspective. Alternatively, work up an appetite for dinner by booking a sunset kayak tour around the reefs. Wildlife is often more active at dawn and dusk, so keep your eyes peeled for the majestic turtles which live in the shallow waters.
One of the most memorable activities available is spending the night on a cruiser out at sea, by the Great Barrier Reef. As most day-trippers to the reef are gone by late afternoon, staying overnight means you can enjoy this natural wonder of the world without the crowds. Sleep under the stars, and be catered for by the on-board chef who is there to prepare all your meals. The reef's pontoons also have an underwater viewing area and air-conditioned lounges for guests to relax in comfort.
