The Perfect Time of Year

The Perfect Time of Year

The Race Week hangover has eased, school holidays are over and life on Hamilton Island is settling back into its regular pace. The Whitsundays weather is glorious – September to November is my favourite time on the island. The sun is getting stronger, but it isn’t uncomfortably hot. It is just…balmy. The night is cool enough for [...]

Passage Peak Mission

Passage Peak Mission

It has been a week now and I think I have finally recovered from our trek up to Passage Peak. Obviously paddling in a canoe is insufficient preparation for hiking the hills. All jesting aside the kids and I had a lovely morning on our 5.3km walk to Passage Peak and back (plus the extra [...]

School holidays are here again. Yippee, I LOVE school holidays! (what are you talking about, there is no sarcasm in my voice!) Thankfully our cold snap finished after the first weekend and we were able to hit the beach and soak up the sun. We took advantage of the low tide to do some exploring [...]

Now, when our recent visitors said that they had seen a peacock outside their Hamilton Island Holiday Home, I confess I looked at them sideways. “Maybe it’s a Pheasant Coucal” I said, with a kindly tilt of my head, displaying my superior knowledge of Australian birds (!). But they were insistent. So the next time [...]
