Breakations launches Hamilton Island holidays, Facebook app and exclusive offer

Take a Hamilton Island Breakation

What happens when an overdue break meets a short vacation? They run away together on a Breakation.

But what is a Breakation you say?

The team at Blue Holidays, the holiday partner of Virgin Australia, have essentially created the “new” short vacation, where your much needed break becomes a mini holiday!

Our point of difference is that fact that these holiday packages are individually tailored to the different people planning the trip. It’s not just couples who can have fun and reconnect — there are short break escapes for everybody, from the boys’ adventure to the girls’ getaway and the much-needed mini family holiday.

With glorious weather, azure waters, brilliant beaches, fine food and wines, and range of activities, Hamilton Island is the perfect destination for our first offerings of short break escapes. They include return airfares, accommodation in the modern Palm Bungalows surrounded by lush tropical gardens, a range of activities, breakfast and more.

To celebrate the arrival of Virgin Australia’s Breakations to Hamilton Island, iconic Australian fashion designer Camilla Franks, has designed a limited edition sarong that is exclusive to the first 100 Virgin Australia guests who purchase a Hamilton Island Breakation from Blue Holidays, including airfares and accommodation.

The beautifully designed sarong combines Camilla’s signature style of brilliant colours, unique graphic prints and signature Swarovski crystals making it the perfect accessory for the luxurious surroundings of Hamilton Island (for more information about this very special offer visit our website).


To help you plan your Breakation we’ve also designed a Facebook app that enables you to send a postcard that is personalised to your Facebook friends, inviting them to your next short break escape. Find out more at virg.co/breakation


Does a Hamilton Island Breakation sound like something you will want to experience in 2012? Will it be with a loved one, a group of friends or your family?

    OMG would love a Breakation to Hamilton Island with hubby – we spend so much time running around after our teenage kids, off to after school sport, dropping them off at parties and then having to stay up late so we can pick them up, driving them to work, teaching them to drive (nail biting) and generally being a hotel/restaurant and taxi driver for them I think I’ve forgotten how to be US. What a great idea for time poor couples :)
