Your guide will lead you on a 40 minute guided walk around this special place, bringing the island to life with narrations and stories you never could have imagined to be true! You’ll discover an old growth Pisonia grandis forest. Similar to a rainforest tree with large root systems and a dense canopy, these trees provide a beautifully cool and shaded environment to leisurely walk through and spot the abundant wildlife. An important nesting habitat for sea birds, these trees are quite unique and your guide will be sure to share their survival story with you.
Walking through an area which is under some of the highest protection possible on the whole Great Barrier Reef, you will experience nature in its truest and purest form possible. There is very little human interference with this intricately beautiful ecosystem, and we are lucky and honoured to share it with you, our guests.
As we walk along the beach, it is possible to see turtles, rays, sharks, shoals of fish, and we may even come across our resident pair of nesting White Bellied Sea Eagles. During turtle nesting season, you’ll witness and learn about the different style of turtle tracks and which species they belong to, while during the hatchling season, you may get incredibly lucky and see some baby turtles making a run for the water. Of course when it comes to seeing wild animals, we can never make any promises but we do do our best to work with nature and give you the best experience possible.
You will see and hear about the camping area on the island. If one day at the island seems like it won’t be enough for you, Lady Musgrave Experience can organise a camping transfer for you, and as it is a national park, you can obtain a camping permit for the duration of your stay from Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service.
