St Helena Island Australia

INTRODUCTION

St Helena Island is Queensland's most historic island. This beautiful National Park is located four kilometres from the mouth of the Brisbane River and for more than 60 years was home to hundreds of society's outcasts, for here stood colonial Queensland's foremost maximum security prison for men. The Island is rich in history, and has a fascinating and colourful past.

The waters surrounding St Helena Island are popular for fishing and crabbing. The grassed flats in the unrestricted zone are ideal for picnicking and ball games. The mud flats to the south-east at low tide expose a wealth of surprises for the beachcomber. Guided tours of the ruins give an insight to the penal and social aspects of the mid-1800's to the early 1900's.
