      is there a good boat trip to whitehaven island

      Hi- We are going to be on Hamilton island from march 5- march 9. I really want to go to whitehaven beach , but all the tour companies just seen to go for 4 hours and head back. They leave only about 2 hrs on the island. Does anybody have a good suggestion for going there? Or is 4 hours plenty of time??? Does anybody have a tour operator that they recommend? Do you think it will be sunny, or will it be rainy every day. I was thinking since it was their fall it would be good weather, so I hope it is not too rainy. Is there anything else we need to see on hamilton island. thanks for your help

      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 !

    • Hamilton Island - what is it REALLY like working on the island??

      by daisy166 Online Now Jan 11, 2010 at 5:57 PM

      Hi there

      I am a 30-year old, NZ photographer and I am very interested in working on Hamilton Island for 6 months July - Dec 2010! I imagine Hamilton Island is a really fun, enjoyable, social place to work - is this correct?

      My questions include:

      Does Hamilton Island arrange the accommodation (if I get a job through them)?
      Is it shared accommodation or bunk beds etc?
      Is it expensive to live there?
      Does it get boring after a week?
      What is there to do aside from swim, walk, shop, golf, eat/drink?
      What is the main age group of the employees?
      Would you recommend working there?
      Is it difficult to find full-time employment? (I am a photographer but can also do administration roles)

      Any advice would be much appreciated! Please be honest!!

      Thank you
