Snapper Island National Park - Cities, Towns and Localities
Declared a national park in 1939 the pristine Snapper Island, with its magnificent coral and fish viewing, is just 27 km north of Port Douglas and 4 km from the mouth of Daintree River. The surrounding waters are rich in nutrients and support a wide variety of marine life.

The corals around the island are particularly beautiful lying within crystal clear shallow waters. Boat owners should only anchor in sand and avoid dragging their boats across the corals or anchoring within them.

No regular cruise boats visit the island however boat charters are available from Port Douglas. Camping is by permit only at West Point camp area. Please book in advance as numbers are limited.

Beware of stingers during the warmer months and estuarine crocodile all year round.

Contact the local Parks and Wildlife Service or visit the QLD National parks, marine parks and forests website. In addition to our listed online travel guide information, contact the local tourism visitor centre for your destination for more attractions, tours, local maps and other information.
