Description

Lady Musgrave Island is the only coral island on the Great Barrier Reef with a navigable lagoon. Over eight kilometres in circumference, this unique cay truly has it all - reef, island, beautifully coloured corals, marine life, flora, fauna, and of course, turtles.

Accessible only by vessel launch from Seventeen Seventy, Lady Musgrave provides visitors with a range of experiences. Scuba divers may come face to face with manta rays or moray eels, and snorkellers will discover giant rainbow coloured fish or coral trout. Swimming and snorkelling inside the lagoon offers calm, crystal clear water - like swimming in a giant aquarium!

In summer, turtles come ashore to lay their eggs and thousands of seabirds nest in rookeries on the uninhabited island.

Although the Island is a National Park and World Heritage Zone, camping is permitted (permits required). Campers should note that there are no shops or facilities ashore and are required to take their own fresh water and food and all supplies.
