The Spit (Western Beach) camping area (boat-based camping)
This site on the island’s west coast has a maximum capacity of 50 campers; the surface is sand and grass and there are some shady trees. Walkers can attempt the beach walk around the coastline of Goold Island, extending for 13 km (5 hr), at low tide only. Generators are not permitted at the campground. Bring drinking water and a gas/fuel stove, as the BBQ should not be relied upon.

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.
