Muttonbird Island Outdoor learning space

Landmarks and Buildings

Long before the island was connected to the shore, certain Gumbaynggirr peple were the only ones permitted to venture here. They came to collect muttonbirds for food, protected for their survival by a giant moon-man guardian.

This fascinating Dreaming story and many others are explained in detail at the award-winning Muttonbird Island outdoor learning space. The display is located at the base of the western side of the island. Aboriginal Discovery Rangers conduct tours of the island, explaining its flora and fauna and narrating their Dreaming stories.

Pause here to take in the past before embarking on the short island walk. Signage along the way explains the wedge-tailed shearwater’s itinerant lifestyle, the north coast’s geographic features and the marine life that lives in surrounding waters.
