The Best Photo Spots (from Dusk til Dawn) on Hamilton Island

The names of Hamilton Island and the Whitsundays are synonymous with tropical relaxation. Every year, hundreds of thousands of holidaymakers make their way to this chain of islands — possibly the most gorgeous along the entire Queensland coast — so they can kick back with a cocktail under the palms and listen to the tinkling…
