Following on from the success of Hamilton Island’s first Instameet is Return2Paradise – the second gathering of Instagramers who recently spent a weekend photographing the tropical paradise. Thankfully I’d just gotten back from my own trip to the Whitsundays, otherwise I don’t think I could take writing about this a second time – the island jealousy would have been way too strong!
Alongside the lucky competition winners were model and TV presenter Rebecca Judd (@becjudd), We Are Handsome Founder and Designer Jeremy Somers (@wearehandsome), world swimming champion Michael Klim (@michaelklim1), Balinese princess Lindy Klim (@lindyklim), food photographer and cookbook author Billy Law (@atablefortwo), comedian and radio announcer Scott ‘Dools’ Dooley (@scottdools), plus one of Australia’s top 10 Pinterest users Luisa Brimble (@luisabrimble).
The group experienced everything Hamilton Island and its surrounds had to offer which included my two highlights from the Whitsundays – a helicopter ride over the islands and the amazing Whitehaven Beach. Flights go daily from Sydney and Brisbane direct to Hamilton Island with Jetstar and Virgin Australia. For more information on how to get there, visit Tourism Whitsundays.
