Help!! Where to stay

Hi All

We are flying to Hamilton Island and staying for 2 nights, the accomodation on the island is a bit pricey for us, can anyone reccommed another island close that has good places to stay?

Thanks :)

Have you checked out all the options for accommodation ?

What type of accom are you needing? If its more backpacker then you need to go to Airlie Beach.

But you will have to get there by ferry- cant remember cost of that, but you will waste money getting over and back.

Why don't you want to go to Airlie Beach? What kind of experiences are you looking for out of this holiday? Maybe if we know a bit more about your travel style we can recommend something that is right for you :)

i went travelling a couple of years ago, so have already stayed in airlie beach and wanted something different this time round as now going with my husband, and we're flying into Hamilton Island so thought it would be nice to stay on the islands, As long as we can do diving he'll be happy. Would you reccomend staying in Airlie Beach and going on a diving day trip?
