Hamilton Island and where to stay


we are going to be at Hamilton Island on February 6, 7 and 8 th. We are a couple with a daughter (18 years) and we don't find where to stay cause everything is too expensive. Any suggestion? We have the flight from Brisbane to Hamilton, but perhaps it is better to stay in another Island? What would you do in 4 days, where to visit? Thanks in advance. Sil

1. Re: Hamilton Island and where to stay

Hamilton Island is not a budget island so probably the minimum you could expect to pay would be from about $260.00 a night for the 3 of you ... because it has its own airport it is very accessible from the eastern coast of Australia

For inexpensive accommodation you would be best checking out Airlie Beach on the mainland and doing day trips out to the Reef but you still will have to factor in your transfer cost to the mainland and back

If HI is part of your travels you may want to consider an apartment .. these are similiar in price to a hotel room with the added bonus of your daughter having her own bedroom and the convenience of a kitchen and laundry to catch up on your washing .... these also include a 4 person golf buggy which is the main form of transport on the island

There are several other resortson islands in the area which you could investigate but HI is the only island with self catering accommodation and a very wide choice of eateries .. from a takeaway food shop to a 5 star restaurant

February is the quiestest month of the year so you should be able to get a good deal on accommodation

If you are looking at 3 nights accommodation then that only gives you 2 full days which is not long as there are so many beautiful places to visit

Check out Airlie Beach as this may suit you better
