Hi - we went to Airlie Beach for our honeymoon and stayed in Airlie Beach and not on an island. It was quite good to stay there and not be 'stuck' on an island if we didn't want to if you know what I mean smile.gif We did day trips to Hayman Island which was fantastic! We also did a 3 island day trip and there is heaps of other choices as well. The place we stayed in Airlie Beach had a view over the water and we could sit in the spa and look at the beautiful blue water and we just had a great time. Just another option smile.gif

Trewy - where did you stay in airlie beach?

We had our wedding on brampton island this year and took 19 guests with us. We won't be going back nor could I recommend it to anyone again. Our previous holiday there was fantastic but we were let down so badly in many respects with our wedding.

It is also no longer all inclusive for stays less than 5 days. The buffet lunch is pretty $$$ at $38 per person.

I would opt for Lizzard/Bederra or the Heron/Wilson Island experience if you are wanting an intimate resort.
If I were a scientist working in a big lab, I'd shout EUREKA! every so often just to boost morale.

Hi Hibiscus Princess we stayed at some units called the Whitsunday Vista - they were great for the view and the spa in the room. The good thing was the spa was behind the glass and not on the balcony like some places. Just a little more privacy if needed. The room itself had basic kitchen stuff so we made breakfast and sometimes lunch and even sometimes simple dinners like baked potatoes in the microwave. It was great to sit in the spa and looked at the blue blue water though smile.gif Anyway, I'm sure you can tell how much I liked it smile.gif Feel free to ask any more questions if you like smile.gif

Been to Hamilton Island twice (my cousin used to live there, lucky me!) and was beautiful, the Whitsunday's are gorgeous. I just thought it was a bit too 'family' for a honeymoon. As I said, great island though - I would go again.

Would LOVE to go to Hayman tongue.gif But at 600 min per night, we wouldn't have been there for long!

Hi there

we went to Hayman Island for 5 nights for our honeymoon - it was so fantastic and we could not fault it - apart from the activities were expensive also - Game fishing was $350.00.
The room and the beach was perfect - but it was expensive - it was $7000.00 for the two of us for 5 nights but that included a huge buffet breakfast and 3 course dinner everynight at one of the 5 restaurants.
The pool area and food was 5 star plus

Not trying to steer you away from Qld Islands, but I would definitely compare prices with places such as Fiji, Vanuatu etc.......we considered Brampton originally. Only thing though, is I told hubby I wanted the best room that we could afford.

In the end though after we compared prices etc, we opted for Fiji as it wasn't going to cost that much more and neither of us had actually left the country before, so that sealed the deal for us.
