What islands would be the greatest to visit?
Either that or perhaps Hamilton Island, or Rottnest Island.
(Just in case a future reader doesn't know, yes, Australia is an Island, and a Continent. We are also the biggest Island in the world.)
The Gold Coast is not an island - it's in the south east of Queensland.
Tasmania is not regarded as "the islands" - it is an Australian state, our island state true, seperated by a 60 minute plane ride.
Rottnest Island is 18 km off the coast of Western Australia - get there via a 40 minute ferry trip.
Hamilton Island is off the coast of Queensland and can be regarded as "the islands."
Out of the above suggestions, I reckon Hamilton would fit the bill over the other suggestions. The Whitsundays are composed of 74 islands
Edited to correct spelling typos and put capital letters where capital letters should be.
In regards to Islands, you really can't go wrong with almost any of Queensland's islands, especially in the Whitsunday group (although accommodation on the Whitsunday Islands can be a bit expensive!) However this also depends on what states you'll be visiting. If you're sticking to the southern states for some reason it'd be a waste of time and money to go all the way up to Queensland just for an island.
Also Fiji and Vanuatu are their own countries and not part of Australia. (Edit: Ah, my bad, I realise now you didn't specify which country you're looking at for Islands. However most people here have guessed Australia and you haven't corrected them yet so I suppose that must be right!)
Some suggestions are Fraser Island, Green Island, Hamilton Island, Whitsunday Island, and Heron Island.
Here's a link to pictures I took on the island.
