Crayfish Beach, Hook Island

Caravan, Camping and Holiday Parks

Crayfish Beach is located on the eastern side of Hook Island, at Mackerel Bay, approximately 35 kilometres north-north-east of Airlie Beach. The beach is positioned between two large mountains and is immensely beautiful, with bush lands, sand, clear water and a coral reef. Due to the location, the beach is sheltered from the prevailing south-easterly winds which makes it an ideal camp site.

The camping area is set amongst beach vegetation, with a small seasonal creek (subject to rainfall) that flows through the camping area to the beach on the north-western side of the bay. The camp site surface is sand and dirt.

A camping permit is required to camp at Crayfish Beach. The campground has a capacity of 12 people (six small tents). Open fires are not permitted in the Whitsunday Islands National Park.

Crayfish Beach can be reached during a mid to high tide by boat (only). Facilities include a composting toilet. Take your own drinking water, rubbish bags, a fuel stove and insect repellent.
