The Whitsunday Islands are a collection of 74 continental islands of various sizes off the central coast of Queensland, Australia, approximately 900 kilometres north of Brisbane. The northern most of the islands are situated off the coast by the town of Bowen while the southern most islands are off the coast by Proserpine. The island group is centred on Whitsunday Island, while the group’s commercial centre is Hamilton Island.
