Curtis Island National Park
A large island with wind-sheared scrublands, diverse birdlife and pristine beaches, Curtis Island remains one of the hidden secrets of central Queensland.

Camping is permitted halfway up the east coast at the sand blow at Yellow Patch, not far from the Cape Capricorn lighthouse. More accessible for campers (just one kilometre from the barge landing point) is the grassy campground on the outskirts of the community of Southend.
