Beautiful Plumage

Beautiful Plumage

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 (!).

Best Job in the World

Best Job in the World

You can’t have too much of a good idea. I see that the massively successful Best Job in the World promotion has been adopted by the ski fields in Victoria.

While I was out driving yesterday I spotted a new sign at One Tree Hill. Hamilton Island has created a series of free audio tours that elaborate on the landmarks, history and activities around and on Hamilton Island. There are several ways you can access the tours. If you are here on the island, you [...]

Cruising in the Whitsundays

Cruising in the Whitsundays

    We have had some guests in the last month who have had their Whitsunday Islands holiday on-board a cruise ship. It is cruising season in the Whitsundays. In fact when the Queen Mary 2 arrived last month, it was one of four to visit within the week. It was, of course, the largest! [...]
