Location

The South Cumberland Islands are 60km north-east of Mackay

What's special

Rugged headlands, eucalypt forest, dry rainforest and rolling grasslands give way to long, sandy beaches and fringing reef. Flatback and green turtles nest on the many beaches and a small population of koalas inhabit St Bees Island.
