Flinders Group National Park - Cities, Towns and Localities
The traditional owners of this group of Islands the Yiithuwarra people, successfully laid claim to the group of Islands in 1994. Today the Islands are managed by the traditional owners in conjunction with the Queensland National Parks and Wildlife Service.

Lying approximately 14 km offshore from Cape Melville and about 350 km north of Cairns the Islands consist of seven Islands. Flinders, Stanley, Clack, Maclear, Denham, Blackwood and King Island.

The waters surrounding the Islands are a part of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park. Good fishing, reef viewing and diving are popular here, however please check with the Park Rangers on allowable activities. Owen channel which separates Flinders and Stanley has some particularly good beaches and bays in which to stop and explore.

A visit to Stanley Island can include a tour by tribal elders of rock art galleries and bush tucker collection. The Islands are also home to many sacred sites be mindful not to disturb these sites.
