Hamilton Island reaches out to Instagrammers


A hipster who likes Instagram

Hamilton Island is reaching out to US based social media hipsters with a visit from a group of Instagrammers.

Hamilton Island will next month host what it had labelled the Ultimate InstaMeet which targets “Pilgramers”, Instagrammers on a pilrimage.

The event will see the group sharing their experiences via Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest and Tumblr. The inspiration behind the campaign is  a group of Pilgramers in the US  who created the phrase and traveled from city to city across America before now heading to Australia.

As part of the Ultimate InstaMeet, Hamilton Island is running a competition for four Australians to join the visit.

The promotion has been featured in the Pilgramers YouTube web series.

Hamilton Island’s Pilgramers will visitWhitehaven Beach, explore the coral reef ecosystem, take a private flight, and cuddle koalas.

Sophie Baker, Hamilton Island’s senior communications manager, said: ‘The response we’ve had so far from Australian Instagrammers has been brilliant, and we can’t wait to see the response we get from America, the home of Instagram.”

More details can be found on the Hamilton Island Facebook page.
