Three Islands Group National Park
Two wooded islands south-west of Cape Flattery are protected in Three Islands Group National Park. The islands are important seabird nesting sites.
The surrounding waters and reefs are protected in the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park and World Heritage Area.
Exploring Three Islands Group: Bush camp on the western side of the islands. No facilities are provided on these remote islands. Be totally self-sufficient. Take water and a fuel stove. Remove your rubbish to the mainland. Camping is closed from 1 September until 31 March during the seabird nesting season.
Check the marine park zoning plan for fishing and collecting restrictions in the surrounding marine park waters. Beware of crocodiles which live in the sea. Wear protective clothing or do not swim during the marine stinger season, October to May.
Getting there: The Three Islands Group is 13km south-east of Cape Flattery. Access is by private boat.
