Silversea Expedition Cruises To Percy Island

Percy Island

Some 120 kilometers southeast of Mackay, the Percy Isles –visited and named by Matthew Flinders in 1802- are one of the seven groups of the Northumberland Islands chain. Middle Percy Island was used to provide timber and water, while in 1874 goats were introduced to provide food for passing ships. Although Northeast Percy and South Percy Island were already national parks in the mid-20th century, the Percy Isles National Park (3,518 hectares) within the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area was only declared in 2010.

The forested Middle Percy Island (2,000 hectares) has mostly rocky shores with sandy beaches and sand dunes on the southern side, with the exception of palm-fringed West Bay. This is where the Percy Island Yacht Club’s A-frame can be seen. This large structure is quite famous as it has a remarkable collection of nautical memorabilia –each visiting yachts seems to leave a memento behind. 83% of the island is part of the national park, the rest, called the Middle Island Conservation Park, is managed by a private lessee with a homestead at the center of the island. Two tracks lead from West Bay’s wide sandy beach to the homestead (listed for the Australian Heritage Database) and on to Whites Bay, a further 2.5 km to the southeast.
