Hamilton Island

November 24, 2012

Hamilton Island is off the coast of Queensland and only a 75 minute flight away. We chose this resort as it provides us with easy access to the Barrier Reef which we will get to take a closer look at during our stay.

Our hotel is truly amazing and the setting idyllic and we have our travel agent at Trailfinders Exeter to thank for his guidance and advice not just for this lace but for the whole of our holiday. For anyone contemplating an extended holiday to a number of places then talk to Trailfinders we have found them excellent throughout the whole process.

So back to our hotel – the resort is called Beach Resort and that’s where it exactly is right on Catseye Beach and we have magnificent views of the ocean and surrounding islands from our terraced room.

We have spent much of our time just relaxing either on the beach or by the poolside which has an infinity pool and is freshwater. There are a number of interesting birds around and we were advised particularly about the cockatoos who are in abundance and given the opportunity would enter your room and have a ‘party’ of the wrong sorts!!!

On Saturday we lazed about on the beach with temperatures around the mid 30’s though with the breeze really didn’t feel that warm. Swimming in the ocean is so lovely as the temperature of the water is like a tepid bath. We did lots of swimming in both the ocean and the pool to keep us cool.

We were pleasantly surprised to witness a wedding on the beach. What a wonderful occasion it must of been and we reflected on the likelihood of such an occasion taking place on the beach in the UK with the certainty of good weather.

Our day concluded with watching the sunset over the Whitsunday Islands. What an awesome experience and once again a reminder of God’s wonderful creation and that as the sun is setting in one continent it is rising in another and so life continues in a similar way. Thank you God for the wonders of your creation and a reminder that your love and grace is universal.
