Babysitting

If you need to arrange a babysitter during your stay on Hamilton Island, you may like to contact one of the babysitters below who have asked us to advertise their services on our website.  Hamilton Island do not accept a fee for this service and do so only as a convenience for guests.

Please be aware that if you engage a babysitter, it is a private arrangement between you and the babysitter and Hamilton Island is not responsible for the services provided, nor for the accuracy of any of the information supplied by babysitters on our website.

Booking a babysitter is easy, simply follow the steps below:

  1. Select a babysitter from the list below or using your smartphone, click the ‘Message all Babysitters’ button, to send a message to all babysitters.

  2. When messaging the babysitter(s) make sure you include a summary of the date, time and number of children required for babysitting.

  3. Allow up to 48 hours for a response. If you do not receive a reply this means that there are no babysitters available.

Please note, the festive season is a period of high demand for babysitting services so advanced bookings are highly recommended.
