  | +# 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?
