Situated just 15km off the coast of Port Douglas, Low Isles is the ideal spot for an inner reef adventure. Made up of two small coral
cay islands surrounded by 55 acres of reef. The two small islands, Low Isles and Woody Island, are separate, but share the common reef and
are considered an important indigenous cultural site for both the local KuKu Yalanji and Yirraganydji tribes. Here is why you should
visit the Low Islands.
Feel the sand between your toes as you snorkel and swim straight from the beach in the shallower waters surrounding the island; relax under
the thatched umbrellas or explore the island.
Because it is so close the the littoral, it only takes about 20 minutes on a fast boat to get to the Low Isles and indulge into a tropical Island experience.
There are 150 different species of hard corals in the waters surrounding Low Isles as well as fishes, molluscs, sea cucumber, turtles and even baby sharks!
Some tours included a guided tour of the Island so you can learn more about the Heritage-listed lighthouse and museum that has been operational since 1878.
If you are on a short trip or travelling with kids, a half day tour may be perfect for you.
A number of tour operators visit Low Isles each day to explore its many features, with each one offering something different. Sailing boat, fast boats of even paddle boar tours are all available.
