is there a good boat trip to whitehaven island  (6 Answers)

Hi- We are going to be on Hamilton island from march 5- march 9. I really want to go to whitehaven beach , but all the tour companies just seen to go for 4 hours and head back. They leave only about 2 hrs on the island. Does anybody have a good suggestion for going there? Or is 4 hours plenty of time??? Does anybody have a tour operator that they recommend? Do you think it will be sunny, or will it be rainy every day. I was thinking since it was their fall it would be good weather, so I hope it is not too rainy.

Hamilton Island - what is it REALLY like working on the island??  (3 Answers)

Hi there

I am a 30-year old, NZ photographer and I am very interested in working on Hamilton Island for 6 months July - Dec 2010! I imagine Hamilton Island is a really fun, enjoyable, social place to work - is this correct?

My questions include:

Does Hamilton Island arrange the accommodation (if I get a job through them)?
Is it shared accommodation or bunk beds etc?
Is it expensive to live there?
Does it get boring after a week?
What is there to do aside from swim, walk, shop, golf, eat/drink?
What is the main age group of the employees?
Would you recommend working there?
Is it difficult to find full-time employment? (I am a photographer but can also do administration roles)

Any advice would be much appreciated! Please be honest!!

Thank you

Daisy
