I’m not usually one for tropical holidays but I really enjoyed a few days on Hamilton Island in the Whitsundays, back in 2014. Apart from lazing about in the hotel pool we did a shortish bushwalk around the island taking in a couple of beaches and the high point Passage Peak, where there are views over nearby islands.

There are a few track options which you can view on the Hamilton Island website. The walks are not very long but they could still be tiring in hot weather.

One of the beaches we stopped at to have a swim. Didn’t realise at the time that the potentially deadly irukandji jelly fish may have been in these waters.

The lorikeets were so tame you could get photos like this just with a camera phone.
