| +# There is no location named Holiday Islands in Queensland Australia, holiday
| +# islands is a colloquial term used globally.
That's true, but it is a widely used nomenclature, and probably better
known that Whitsunday Islands.
| Hayman and Lindeman are at the
| +# North and South extremes of the Whitsunday Islands archipelago, and
| +# Hamalton is in between;
That would be Hamilton, and while Lindeman is near the southern extreme,
Thomas Island is probably the actual limit.
| it is reasonable to believe that this time zone
| +# applies to all of the Whitsundays.
That would require confirmation from someone in that part of the world
I expect - some of the islands are probably uninhabited, and so have no
real timezone. Inhabited ones that are not tourist destinations (if such
a thing really exists) could just use reqular Qld time (I have no idea.)
ps: is all of this structure really needed for what are just comments
intended for (local knowledgeable) humans?
