Hamilton Island 2010

Ley “surprised” me last weekend with a trip to Hamilton Island. So some rushed packing on saturday night and we were on our 11am flight. We touched down around 1pm hamo time to some rain drops but funnily when we stepped out onto the tarmac it all stopped. This pattern will repeat for the rest of the trip with us barely missing the rain on most occasion.

Hamo is a fairly small island and the main form of transport are these buggys powered by lawn mower engines. Apart from the fact the vehicle cant brake for crap it was a fun experience in itself. The island is tiny so a small buggy can circle the island in not much time at all. Within a few hrs of arriving at hamo we drove all the way around the island and pretty much figured out where everything is.
Our accommodation was so awesome it made everything worthwhile from the get go. Check out this view.

We didn’t waste anytime and decided to go cool down as the temps was pretty damn hot/humid to say the least. With pools like these how can you say no?

We headed off to the great barrier reef the next day relatively early for another full day of relaxation, coral viewing, sun baking and snorkeling. The feeling of swimming in the ocean with fish surrounding you and no island in sight is something to behold. Having a bbq and then sunbaking after all that is just the icing on the cake. Definitely an awesome experience!

Unfortunately the next day saw us flying back to Sydney but i left feeling completely rejuvenated from what, 1 month of hard tedious work? :p Awesome trip, awesome company, awesome views, awesome food all totals to an awesome experience.
