I have been looking into staying on Brampton Island for 5 nights in December this year, although the accommodation costs are similar to those that I have found whilst researching Hamilton Island. I am concerned that we will not be able to afford the costs once I'm on it. I see you can get a food package for $65 for a day which seems ok, ish - although I would prefer to spend far less than that but are the drinks expensive? is there any kind of shop for a snack rather than full meal?
Also we had hoped to go out the reef to snorkel or dive and maybe to whitehaven beach but I note on the voyages website that the excursions they note are very expensive around 400- 600 dollars versus under 150 from Hamilton Island. Is there a cheaper way of seeing the reef? or really should I just stay at a cheaper island?
your thoughts are appreciated
