Carlisle Island

Carlisle is a hilly continental island with dense eucalypt forest, vegetation and rainforest in gullies. The island is 518 hectares of National Park and is surrounded by fringing coral reef, allowing snorkellers the opportunity to walk off the beach into the water and view coral and tropical fish. Sandbank access to Brampton Island is at low tide. Booking for camping on the island is essential; access to the island is via private boat or water taxi with Brampton Island. Transfers from Brampton Island to Carlisle Island are available by prior arrangement with the resort.

Campers and visitors to the island need to be self sufficient, please ensure you take water and a gas barbecue as fires are not permitted on the island. Other island facilities include picnic tables, sheltered shed, toilets and drinking water.

Permits need to be obtained from the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service for camping.

Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
