Welcome to Lady Musgrave Island
Part of the Capricornia Cays National Park, this tiny cay – no more than 14 hectares of coral, sand, shingle and pisonia, 100km northeast of Bundaberg – sits on the western rim of a stunning, turquoise-blue reef lagoon, renowned for its safe swimming, snorkelling and diving. A squeaky, white-sand beach fringes a dense canopy of pisonia forest brimming with roosting bird life, including terns, shearwaters and white-capped noddies. Birds nest from October to April, while green turtles nest from November to February. But with nearly 2000 hectares of reef surrounding this tiny green dot, what's below the surface will always be the main event.
