Tug's Point camping area (boat-based camping)
Camping is permitted on Rabbit Island’s south-east coast, where you’ll find a gas barbecue and a few other basic facilities such as picnic tables and a shelter shed. Bring drinking water. There’s excellent wildlife-watching on the island – try spotlighting for possums at night. Note: insect repellent is a must for Rabbit Island; beware of marine stingers and estuarine crocodiles.
