English: This photo-like image of the core of the Whitsunday Islands was acquired by the Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+) instrument on NASA’s Landsat 7 satellite on May 22, 2003. The scene is dominated by the largest island and namesake of the chain. Deep green forest covers most of Whitsunday Island, which is outlined by brilliant white sand beaches, the largest and most dramatic being Whitehaven Beach at the southeastern end of the island.
