Hamilton Island, about 5 square kilometres in area, is the largest inhabited island of the 75 Whitsunday Islands in Queensland, Australia. It's about 900 kilometres north of Brisbane and 500 kilometres south of Cairns. Like the rest of the Whitsunday group, Hamilton Island, was formed as sea levels rose which created numerous drowned mountains all situated close to Queensland's coast.
It's a privately owned island and exclusively operated as a tourist destination.
We spent 8 lovely days on the island and gloried in the 25C plus temperatures during the day and about 21C at night.
