Karragarra Island, QLD

Karragarra is the smallest of the bay islands, and has a very small permanent population. It is a very tranquil, peaceful place to visit.

Karragarra Island

‘Karra’, as it is affectionately known has no store or retail facilities – one of the secrets to remaining a quiet and peaceful place to be enjoyed by visitors looking for seclusion and tranquility.

There are some public amenities for visitors to enjoy – Karragarra has a beach with a jetty for mooring boats and fishing. The beach sits in a beautiful secluded position with an enclosed swimming area and free electric barbecues and undercover seating for the rare rainy days.

Take a leisurely walk through the rainforest, or along the esplanade. There is also a local historical museum and an artist’s studio with interesting pieces on display.
