Flinders Group National Park

Seven remote and ruggedly attractive islands, with a rich cultural landscape, form Flinders Group National Park. The islands contain important Aboriginal story and burial sites, along with nationally significant rock art showing early contact with Europeans. The islands lie adjacent to Cape Melville and are within the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area.

Visit the islands on a commercial cruise vessel or in your private boat. Walk the 2.8 kilometre interpretive trail to learn about the Yiithuwarra ‘saltwater people’. Contemplate their rock art in the Ship and Yindayin rock shelters on Stanley Island (Yindayin). Bush camp on Flinders Island (Wurriima). Watch seabirds and look for turtles and dugong. Enjoy the remoteness of this unique park.

Citizens of the Great Barrier Reef

“The actions of people across the planet will define the future of the Great Barrier Reef.”

Andy Ridley – Founder Earth Hour & CEO Citizens of the Great Barrier Reef

We all have a responsibility to protect our natural heritage. The threats to the Great Barrier Reef are real and immediate, but if we respond now with action not apathy, there is hope.

We’re mobilising a global network of Citizens, committed to taking action for the Reef and the planet. Our message to the world is that the Reef is still beautiful, inspiring and most importantly, worth fighting for.

Help us build a new social movement and become a Citizen of the Great Barrier Reef. By claiming your citizenship, you’re not only helping the Reef – you’re securing the future of the planet.
