What’s Hamilton Island Like During School Holidays?
It’s exciting when island life becomes all about school holidays, as Hamilton Island is right now. Hamilton Island is the place to make the most of those precious few weeks during the year when they’re all yours to enjoy (and entertain!).
The perfect place to make memories
During school holidays Hamilton Island is absorbed in laughter, squeals of delight and all-round happiness. There’s a diversity of things to do, ways to eat and play, places to explore, world-class wonders and balmy tropical island surroundings.
We’re talking all levels of the luxury and convenience spectrum, with something for all ages.
Add to this the relaxed, contemporary comforts of the accommodation and services we will secure for you and you begin to see the appeal. (This includes a valet service to usher you to and from your accommodation, not to be underestimated!).
Here’s a snapshot of what our September School Holidays families have waiting for them today:
- Start with the Run Club at 6am if you love to greet the day with a run.
