For many of us, a holiday on a beautiful island epitomises the perfect getaway, whether we're craving a solo retreat, romantic interlude or a family vacation. Here in Australia we have a huge range of islands to choose from, ranging from the tropical paradises of the Great Barrier Reef, to the isolated charm of Flinders and King Island in Bass Strait and pristine Kangaroo Island, off the coast of South Australia.

Have you ever been on an island holiday? What's your favourite Australian island?

I've been to quite a few in the Witsundays (on an 'Island Hopper' holiday. I've been to South Molle twice and liked that but I think Magnetic Island is my favourite.

I have a lot of favourites....each place has its own special ambiance. I love the tropical charm of Magnetic and Dunk Islands on the Great Barrier Reef, but am also captivated by the remote beauty of Bruny Island in the far south of Tasmania and the unique culture of the Torres Strait Islands right up above Cape York. However, since I live in Perth, the island I visit most is Rottnest Island...locally known as Rotto. It's my favourite place to go to for a solo retreat when I want to spend some quiet time alone in nature reading, writing and studying.
Tasmania! I love the whole island - lovely and green (often). Lots to see.
There are so many that this is a difficult question!

If i am to be patriotic, I would say Rottnest Island off the coast of Perth and where I spent many a weekend when my children were young.

However the islands off the other side of Australia, i.e. Queensland, are delightful with their tropical scenery and so close to so much.

There are many islands off Australia that I have not been to, however I really like island holidays as I find them relaxing and usually very good food.

Norfolk, Hamilton and Tasmania are the only three I have been to. The are all great as there are different things to do at each
Hayman Island, in Whitsunday Passage!

First went there as a child, & fell in love with it!
Then went back several times' for my work, as an adult.
Was NOT disappointed! Last stay was in a Suite, which, from its' verandah, looked straight down the Whitsunday Passage! Talk about a magnificent view!

Have stayed on Hamilton Island, as well. Too commercialised for my liking.
Frazer Island
Ah.....that would be 'FraSer' Island, off SE coastline of Qld, you mean?

I've only been to a few. On 2 cruises right around Australia, we had 2 days on Hamilton Island, which we thought was rather a boring island, when we were taken around in mini bus. We would love to go to Tasmania. We've called called into a couple of the ports, on the cruise. We also had a day on Kangaroo Island, which is a lovely place. We did spend 6 days on Brandon island, in 1969, for our honeymoon. It rain for most of that time, & the gardener said it's the 1st time it's rained in June, in 30 years!! We loved it there, with our little shack close to the water. I'd love us to go back there, but I don't think it's been fixed up since the cyclone about 4 or 5 years ago!
