Repulse Islands National Park
Just off Cape Conway, Repulse Islands National Park protects a small group of islands overlooking the Lindeman Group and the rugged Conway Range.
The islands and surrounding waters are part of the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area and are protected.
Things to do: The small camping area in a sheltered bay at West Beach (South Repulse Island) has a good anchorage. Campers must be self-sufficient. Take fresh water, a fuel stove for cooking and insect repellent. Open fires and generators are prohibited. Remove all rubbish to the mainland.
From 1 October to 31 March seasonal bird restrictions apply. You must observe a 6-knot speed limit within 200m of high water mark and no beach access is permitted within the seabird nesting area at the southern end of West Beach.
There are no walking tracks in this park. Talk to the local rangers before walking off-track.
Getting there: Access is by private boat only.
