Geologically the Whitsunday Islands are all drowned mountains. Prior to the last Ice Age they were connected to the mainland and would have all been prominent mountains in the area. The melting of the polar caps drowned the valleys between the mountains, creating a network of 74 islands 7 of these islands now have resort facilities. Beyond the resorts the whole area is part of The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and the uninhabited islands are all controlled by the Australian National Parks and Wildlife.

The late Captain James Cook travelled through the area on his journey up the eastern coast of Australia in 1770. He passed through Whitsunday Passage on Sunday 4th June which happened to be White Sunday (the seventh Sunday after Easter) hence the name of the area.
