Michaelmas Cay Reef

Michaelmas Cay

Michaelmas Cay, off the coast of Cairns.

One of three sand cays situated off the coast of Cairns. An aerial view with the ‘Ocean Spirit’ vessel preparing to depart.

The Great Barrier Reef has some wonderful islands out in the ocean, even islands newly formed like these sand cays formed on coral reefs. The sand cays situated off the coast of Cairns are natural wonders that are loved by all who have visited them. Local sail boat owners sail out to these cays to spend the weekend in the clear night light under the stars. Visitors take trips on various vessels that visit the cays daily, or with helicopters or sea planes that land right on the cays. One of the cays, ‘Michaelmas Cay’ is a sanctuary for a wide variety of sea birds that raise their young there.
