Lady Musgrave Island

Lady Musgrave Island is a very special part of the Great Barrier Reef with an estimated 1200 varieties of colourful marine fish and 200 species of hard and soft corals calling the island home.

An underwater oasis is waiting to be discovered as you pop on your snorkel and mask to reveal one of the Great Barrier Reef's biggest swimming pools at Lady Musgrave Island.

The protected lagoon is truly unique on this coral cay island, where you can play castaway on a bare-bones camping adventure or hop aboard a luxury vessel and visit in star worthy style. This is truly unspoilt, authentic island living at its best and with a maximum of 40 people allowed to camp at any one time, you will have an uncrowded Barrier Reef adventure to boot.

If you choose to daytrip instead, you can view the reef by glass bottom boat, go diving, snorkelling, take island walks and discover the amazing and pristine reef habitat many marine and land animals call home.
Get up close with 'flying' manta rays, view turtles smoothly swimming through the ocean, try to pick out what reef fish you know from the abundant life under the sea.

Highlights:
* The island's biggest asset is a a huge protected coral lagoon, surrounded by an eight-nautical-mile long, naturally-formed coral wall.
* Look out for meeting turtles, clownfish (Nemo), coral gardens and manta rays
* If you visit between November to March you might see turtles carefully laying their clutches of eggs (November to January) or babies sprouting forth for their first dip in the big blue yonder (January to March).

Camping is possible, without facilities.
