Do you need to use insect repellent on Hamilton island for mosquitoes and midges??
Yes and buy tropical strength personal insect repellant, like Aeroguard or Bushmans.
We have lots of mozzies in Queensland at the moment, it's hot, humid and rainy at times...perfect for breeding mozzies unfortunately.
We were on Hamilton Island October/November weekend. Did not need any insect repellent at all - although we had taken some Bushmans with us
Have it on hand... depending on the time of year and prevalence of mosquitoes during their breeding cycle you may, or may not, need to use it. We were there in September and didn't .. but after the rains it's possibly a different matter
