Kent Group National Park


Access to the Kent Group of Islands National Park is very limited due to the remote location of the Islands. Until recently it was possible to fly by light aircraft to Deal Island, however the airstrip is now closed as it was deemed dangerous and was also having a detrimental impact on the island. Even though the islands are accessible by water there are no commercial charters available.

Private boats still frequent the waters around the islands. These waters offer safe anchorages and spectacular scenery. The area has long been recognised by yachties and fisherfolk for the tranquil, untouched bays and coves.
