Known to the indigenous Gumbaynggirr people of the area as The Place of the Moon, Muttonbird Island is a peaceful haven occupied by thousands of wedge-tailed shearwaters, known as mutton birds. Connected to the mainland by a breakwater, it is a lovely (and exhausting) hike to the top, where the views are exceptional. Evening guided tours by Aboriginal elders are also available, which provide fascinating and rich context about the cultural importance of the island. Open 24 hours.
