Hotel in Airlie, how do we visit Hamilton and Daydream?

Hi, if we are staying in Airlie beach, is there a water taxi that we can catch on and off for a day to visit Daydream and Hamilton? And would we be able to use any of the island golf carts to go around? What are the best things to do in DD and HI with chldren? Thanks in advance!

Here is the link to the ferry:

Contact HI regarding what day trippers can hire/do.

Daydream Island is currently closed for renovations after it was badly damaged in Cyclone Debbie.

Cheers

In regards to Golf Carts - there is the hire depot right near the area where the ferry pulls in.....you may wish to check with them if you need to reserve one

As you’re visiting with kids, that probably means school holidays so you will definately need to book a golf cart in advance, particularly a 4 seater. They are $87 per day.

There is an activities area past the airport where they have aqua golf and go karts otherwise the pools and marina have plenty to keep the kids occupied
