This campsite is located in Goold Island National Park

Goold Island’s close proximity to Cardwell (17 km north-east) makes it a good choice for camping. The surrounding waters are great for waterskiing and boating, but be wary, as estuarine crocodiles are present in the area. Fishing is not permitted in the freshwater creeks on the island. Access to Goold Island is by private boat or ferry service from Cardwell. Advance bookings are required for camping.
