Returned with all family (14) for another week in Paradise. If you get a coffee and sit by the water's edge you will never tire of the changing views. Glorious yachts, motor yachts, smiling families or couples in golf buggies cruising down Front Street passing the deli, bakery, art gallery, pharmacy, restaurants, general store, the pub, ice-cream parlour, the post office and not forgetting Trader Pete's.
This is the busiest part of the island but also the most entertaining. Overseas tourists ignore the requests not to feed the cockatoos, taking 'photos and tempting the birds with food until eventually their lunch disappears skyward. Day-trippers or island guests taking a cruise travel back and forward on large boats all day, the yachties spend time sitting around in the cafes catching up with one-another or replenishing their supplies at the general store. There is never a dull moment.
It's a joy to see the water pristine clean, fish swimming between the huge yachts and cruisers, sea-gulls squalking as they prowl the piers looking for food.
Chartered M.V. Älani to take us over to Hayman Island for the day. Very spacious and skippered by a great guy, Colin.
Close walk to many apartments or villas. A great location for lots of reasons.

The Marina shops were nice but one general store but plenty of restuarants for every need. The Marina was clean and well kept credit to them. You just have to watch out for the Cockatoos as they try to pinch your food..

Hamilton Island is a great destination and memorable for the Island, activities, the golf cart for checking out the island, and the beauty of the habitat. You have to see the Koala bears, kangaroos, and the Great Barrier Reef.

Had Fish and Chips there after spending the afternoon on Catseye beach, best fish ever!, A bit expensive but worth it. If you plan on going the Hamilton Island its better value to book a tour with include sightseeing as this island is very big but they do have a free shuttle bus that does a loop of the island. Beautiful

Booked a Half Day fishing trip. Went 8am to 12pm. Got back 15 minutes early. Wasn't allowed own rod. Only had 4 rods in the water at a time. Only 2 rods in the water while trawling. There were 10 people on the fishing trip. Asked if I could use one of the many rods sitting there not being used. Was told no as they didn't want any tangles. Spent most of the trip sitting in the cabin waiting for my turn, very frustrating. Must be a minimum of 7 people to go out so every trip people have to share a rod.
