Lady Musgrave Island is a 14 hectares (35 acres) coral cay on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, with a 1,192 hectares (2,950 acres) surrounding reef.

The island is the second island in the Great Barrier Reef chain of islands (with the first being Lady Elliot Island), and is most easily reached from the Town of 1770, Queensland, located approximately 5 hours north of Brisbane or a day trip from Bundaberg.

The Island is named for the wife of Sir Anthony Musgrave, a colonial governor of Queensland.
Lady Musgrave Island, and the immediate surrounds, is a national park and can be reached by Lady Musgrave Cruises from the Town of 1770. It is also part of the Capricornia Cays Important Bird Area.

Lady Musgrave island is also referred to as Wallaginji by local Australian Aboriginal tribes. The name Wallaginji means beautiful reef. Courtesy Wikipedia.



An underwater oasis is waiting to be discovered as you pop on your snorkel and mask to reveal one of the Great Barrier Reef’s biggest swimming pools at Lady Musgrave Island to Snorkel in the protected Lady Musgrave Lagoon with Turtles, Manta Rays and many more magnificent Marine Life.

The protected lagoon is truly unique on this coral cay island, where you can play castaway on a camping adventure or take the day trip to have a great memory in this unique experience.
