The secret got out…

Derwent Hunter was trying to keep Santa’s secret safe but Tourism Australia, Queensland and Whitsundays all got wind of his little R&R trip to the Whitsundays before the big day and told everyone!

Our little video and photos got shown around the world! Check out the video of this lovely relaxing spot Santa found with us on Langford Island near Hayman Island.

Our own Christmas celebrations were a lot of fun. Everyone got into the spirit and donned a santa hat or some reindeer antlers for some photos.
