Description

Curtis Island is located a short distance off the coast of Gladstone and offers stunning unspoilt beaches, intimate north-facing bays, sparkling ocean, the Southern Great Barrier Reef, wilderness, wetlands as well as an outback-style cattle station. It even has its own airstrip.

It is this combination of these diverse attributes and natural beauty which make the area of Turtle Street absolutely unique in Australia and perhaps even the world. As it is situated under the Tropic of Capricorn, the climate is far less humid in summer than further north and it escapes the chill of south-east Queensland in the winter.

The southend of Curtis Island is part of the third largest Turtle rookery in Queensland where you can experience flat back turtles nesting and hatching between October and March each year.
