Lady Musgrave Island is accessible on a day trip from either the Town of 1770 or Bundaberg. This lovely coral cay is surrounded by a long fringing reef, and has a large lagoon that is a popular diving and snorkelling site. Scattered throughout the lagoon are countless coral heads, and with the depth rarely more than eight metres divers have a lot of time to explore. The calm waters in the lagoon allow delicate hard corals to flourish, including large patches of staghorn coral. While most of the reef fish seen are small, the ones under the permanent pontoon certainly aren’t, as schools of sweetlips, goatfish, snapper, rabbitfish, damsels and a few gropers shelter here.
