Campground closure for redevelopment works on North West Island, Capricornia Cays National Park - 16 May 2019 to 30 August 2019

This alert applies to the following parks:

Major construction works are planned to commence on North West Island from 18 May 2019 to 30 August 2019.

The construction works are focused to revitalise the North West Island campground to enhance visitor experience and protect and recover significant nesting habitat for sea birds and marine turtles. The works will include the construction of new toilet amenities, pedestrian fencing, boardwalks and pest animal management. During this time, access to North West Island will be closed to facilitate construction works, public safety and to allow for the storage of materials, heavy plant and equipment. Alternative campsites are available on Mast Head Island, Lady Musgrave Island and various Keppel Bay islands.

We thank you for your patience during this closure and look forward to seeing you on park once the works are completed.
