Barnard Island Group National Park

Kurrimine Beach, Cassowary Coast Area

The islands feature outstanding rock formations and diverse landforms including shallow reefs, sand spits, beaches and dense rainforest-clad slopes. The rainforested slopes of the Barnard Islands rise steeply from the sea, part of the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area. Mangroves fringe parts of the islands and coastal plants border the shores. The South Barnard islands (Sister and Stephens islands) are an important breeding site for seabirds. 23 species of woodland birds have also been recorded on and around the Barnard islands.

Camp on Stephens or Kent islands. Drop a line and catch a fish for dinner. Snorkel on the extensive reefs connecting Sisters and Stephens islands in the South Barnard islands and on the fringing reefs surrounding the North Barnard islands. Wander along the beaches and spend fascinating hours watching birds. Access is restricted to Sisters and Stephens islands from 1 September to 31 March each year to protect nesting sea birds. Remember to be croc wise.
