    Boating and fishing

    Historically, this area is a popular camping spot for professional fishers and crabbers.

    The adjacent waters offer ample boating and fishing opportunities. Refer to a marine zoning map before you set out. Zoning regulations specify how you can use particular sites and the permits you might require. For detailed information on activities such as fishing and crabbing, consult the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority zoning map. Maps are available from Queensland Fisheries, bait and tackle shops, the department offices and online at Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority.

    Two low impact boat ramps are located at the point. Boat users need to beware of estuarine crocodiles, box jellyfish and other marine stingers year round (though stingers are most common from October to May). Wear a stinger suit when wading.
