Spectacular white sand cay - a protected bird sanctuary

Michaelmas Cay is well known as one of the most important seabird breeding sites in the Great Barrier Reef. The small vegetated cay was formed by the accumulation of broken coral, shells and remains of calcareous algae, continually washed over the reef by currents. Only limited visitors permitted onto the cay daily.

<<About Michaelmas Cay>>
Michaelmas cay is a vegetated sand cay located 43km north east of Cairns, and 17km north of Green Island. In 1975, it became a fauna sanctuary and national park.
This beautiful cay and surrounded ocean is home to birds and sea life. Colourful tropical fish, sea turtles... you will see hundreds of species!
The cay is a protected bird sanctuary, and is a major natural seabird habitat.
