After our recent family holiday to Hamilton Island, I have comprised my top six things to do on the beautiful Hamilton Island. Here they are, in no particular order!

Hamilton Island is absolutely gorgeous – there is no doubt about it. However, there is nothing quite so stunning as flying over the island, out over the expanse of ocean and casually gazing down over the Great Barrier Reef as it stretched out below you in all its shimmering aquamarine glory.
It is a truth universally known that we are not a hiking family. An adventurous family, yes. A we-will-try-many-things-once, yes. But, hikers? Alas, it is not the case.
My father loves to drive. This is a statement which should not be taken lightly. I don’t mean it in a crazy/fast driver sorta way, but he genuinely likes driving. So one of the things he enjoys when we are holiday is driving around the area. When I’m on holiday, I personally prefer to chill in the backseat and take in the sights, so I don’t really get it – but hey, this does mean that my father’s knack for taking the wheel is quite relaxing and convenient for the rest of us.
A couple times now, we have driven around Oahu, one of the most popular of the Hawaiian Islands. Hence, we have accumulated a bit of knowledge/experience and some fun tips for other road-tripping families. So here are some of our top suggestions, brought to you by the Walker family!
Waikiki: loud, packed with tourists and undeniably clichéd. But it is just as undeniable that the place holds an amazing charm which manages to enchant tourists again and again. Yes, it can be overcrowded and bustling, but the people are amazing and the island is beautiful, even in the centre of the city.
My family and I have now ventured into the beautiful Hawaiian paradise four times – needless to say, it has become a favourite family holiday destination. We have seen and done so many things, but one of the best experiences to date remains the morning we spent with the Dolphin Excursions team!
