Forbes Island- named by Captain Cook in 1770 – is one of three small uninhabited islands spread over an area of just 2km by 2km. Forbes Islands constitute the Wuthara Island National Park, inside the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area. The island group, surrounded by a fringing reef, is situated off the coast of Queensland about 40km NE of Iron Range National Park and Lockhart River in the Cape Weymouth area of the Coral Sea. The explorer ship Coral Discoverer anchors here, just 200 km south of Australia’s northernmost point, when repositioning between Darwin and Cairns

The tropical weather encourages swimming, snorkelling, and scuba diving in the fantastic pristine waters of the reef. All three islands barely reach 80m, are covered with stunted scrub and grassland, and one quarter of their rocky shorelines are sandy beaches. Forbes Island itself is a beautiful 'mini Lizard Island'. Explore the surrounding sandy cays and relax on the beautiful beach sand, or visit the old coconut plantation. This truly is a delightful, remote, and breathtaking island group. There are no roads, walking tracks or public facilities.

There are no tracks for visitors, so scramble across the landscape. Fish within the regulations, avoid dangerous jellyfish in season (wear a full-body lycra suit in warm weather), bird-watch, and look out for turtles, dugongs, and sometimes an estuarine crocodile. It is of historical interest in that the Kuuku-Ya'u People have recently won a 14-year native title battle over this piece of Cape York Peninsula Aboriginal Land, granting them non-exclusive rights over part of island and surrounding seas. Interestingly, Queensland is home to 223 national parks, which is the highest of any Australian State or Territory.
