Help save a VT'r

by jeffmartinartist Online Now Oct 29, 2010 at 6:00 PM

I love to cook and booked an apartment with kitchen on Hamilton Island for a week. There is no way of purchasing fresh seafood on the island. The restaurants are over priced, which I could handle if anyone knew how to cook. This place has great weather but I feel like I am trapped in a cross between the Truman show and The Wickerman (original version). Is there anyone out there that has been thru and survived this place. Here till Wednesday 3rd Help !

    My goodness--how awful for you to be"trapped" on the island,have you asked some of the chefs/cooks on the island restaurants if you could purchase some fresh seafood from them?(no cooking)or perhaps hire some fishing gear and catch your own--that maybe fun.I am a bit shocked they haven't any fresh seafood stores for people who stay in an apartment as we are renowned for our seafood along the coast of QLD.
    Next time come up to Cairns,we have tons of fresh seafood here.

    Hello again,I was just thinking that you could get up very early and head down to the wharf or fishing co-op and get it straight from the fishing boats like the restaurants do each day.

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers Dorrise

    Problem has been solved with fresh seafood delivery 7 days a week from the restaurant in Airlie rated number 1 on Trip Advisor for the Great Barrier Reef. Don't think I should post adress but just type seafood delivery to hamilton island into google and you will find it.
