I was wondering if the snorkeling at Hamilton might be a bit like at Brampton Island where you have to go a bit out to the 'fish bowl' and it was very tide dependent. I got a bit freaked out cause it was rough & murky to get there and I couldn't see more than 10cm in front of my face! I'm fine with swimming a way out as long as there's ok visibility!

Does anyone know if they have stinger nets off any of the beaches? (Not for snorkelling, just swimming). Trying to work out best time of year to go with stinger season.

We loved it so much we got married there
It is beautiful. We have been a few times, the most recent was for our wedding and Ds was 9 months old. He had a great time in the pools and we even put him in the kids club one afternoon. Personally, we've always stayed in an apartment, booked through stayz.com.au
Much better if you want to cook too and more roomy. They also include complimentary golf buggies do you don't have to hire for $90 a day.
Also if you are staying a week and looking to cook a few meals I recommend getting groceries delivered from Coles online on the mainland. Normal grocery prices as opposed to the expensive general store on the island. Hope that helps

I've been to hayman without kids and I think Hamilton would be better if your going with kids. You just catch a boat out to hayman so don't have to go on a sea plane its super expensive though and not much for kids to do there. We will be going to Hamilton next time we go up
