Hook Island - Cities, Towns and Localities
Part of the Whitsunday Group of Islands, it is thought that the island derived it’s name from the crude maps that were drawn, as seen on the British Admiralty charts from the 1820s, showing it with a distinctive hook. It wasn’t until the 1860s when surveys gave the island it’s real shape.

The island is some 58 square kilometres of national park plus a resort. Located in the South Pacific Ocean on the edge of the Coral Sea, Hook Island is the second largest island in the Whitsunday group, and offers visitors the opportunity for fringe reef diving and snorkelling just offshore, as well as beautiful beaches, breath-taking lookouts and enjoyable walking tracks.
 

There is also the historical Hook Observatory that descends six metres underwater, allowing views of the magical underwater ocean environment.

Location:
south of Hayman Island and north of Whitsunday Island.
