They are full of lush rainforests, amazing animals and beautiful plant life, as well as resorts, beaches and so much beauty. Most if the 74 islands are uninhabited, with only a select few hosting resorts or residential houses. Besides resorts, you'll also find hiking trails, world-famous beaches, and more on the islands of the Whitsundays.

The most popular of the islands are Whitsunday Island, which is home to Whitehaven Beach, Hayman Island, Hamilton Island, Daydream Island, Long Island, Hook Island, South Molle Island, Dent Island and Cid Island.
