Escape to Hamilton Island

I’ve always said that the only way to survive a Canberra winter is to get out, even if it’s just for an extra long weekend! I’m originally from QLD so the sunshine and sea will always be some of my favourite things. We’re in the midst of the coldest time of the year in Canberra and it’s not too late to plan your winter escape.

We went there earlier in the year and had the best time exploring the island! Continue reading Escape to Hamilton Island
