Great songs have been written about many of the world’s most exotic locations and, if there isn’t a song about the magnificent Whitsundays and Hamilton Island, there should be. Certainly, one way to become inspired when writing the great Hamilton Island lyric composition would be to sail around it, observing the beauty from the deck of a sleek white yacht or catamaran or picturesque sailing boat.
