Hamilton Island

We stayed a week in the marina at Hamilton Island.  Hamilton is part of the Whitsunday Islands, a section of the Australian coast that is known for sailing and especially chartered yachts.  Hammo as the locals call it has private homes but is dominated by one very large resort with all types of accommodation.  The mode of transportation on Hammo is golf carts or the island buses which circle the island on a regular basis.  The little "downtown" has several restaurants, a bakery, a post office, a dive shop and a general store.  They have everything you could want to make you holiday complete.  We enjoyed being on land for a week with plenty of time to stretch our legs.  We also got in some pool time and re provisioned for our next trip out.  The video above is Dylan and Daddy on an early morning trip to the look out.
