QLD Mackay - Lindemans Island National Park

Just off the mainland between Airlie Beach and Bowen lies Gloucester Islands National Park, a scenic group of inshore continental islands. Gloucester Island, the largest, is home to a colony of endangered Proserpine rock-wallabies. Sandy and coral rubble beaches, rainforest and seclusion are some of this park’s main attractions.

The islands and surrounding waters are part of the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area and are protected.


Take a private boat from Dingo Beach, Hydeaway Bay, Bowen or Airlie Beach to reach these islands.
