Capricornia Cays National Park

National Parks and Reserves Natural Attractions

Capricornia Cays’ stunning white beaches and coral reefs will leave a lasting impression. Their exceptional beauty and biological diversity make them internationally significant.

Capricornia Cays National Park protects eight coral cays which rise just a few metres above the high tide mark – Lady Musgrave, North West, Masthead, Wilson, Heron, Erskine and Tryon islands and Broomfield Cay. Their biological diversity, exceptional beauty and the endangered plants and animals they protect make them internationally significant. The cays support the largest breeding population of endangered loggerhead turtles in the South Pacific.

A large percentage of the Great Barrier Reef’s seabird species visit each year to nest. Go reef-walking, snorkelling, diving, birdwatching, boating or fishing. You can camp on two of the eight islands. Camping fees apply and bookings are essential. Book well in advance for school holidays. Take water and a fuel stove. Seasonal closures protect breeding seabirds, turtles and vegetation. Access to Tryon Island is restricted. Check restrictions on activities such as spearfishing, anchoring, fishing and collecting.
