These striking photographs of Admiralty Island show it in all its stunning glory. Set in Trinity Inlet, the Island is host to mangroves and all the natural fauna attracted to it. Although it is in the middle of civilization, Admiralty Island has kept its natural innocence, free from buildings and all that they bring. Add to Description →
Opening into Trinity Bay, the Cairns Tidal Wetlands, of which Admiralty Island is a part, holds a diverse range and combination of natural fauna and flora. It is home to a varied range of fish, with over forty species available for the eager angler. Fishing is great in the deep holes at the mouth of Redbank Creek or near the Five Ways. Good catches are also obtained on the flats out from the Cairns Esplanade. There are over ninety kilometres of winding waterways for the boating enthusiast in the Trinity Inlet. All this is only two minutes from Cairns Central.
There is secure anchorage on the southern side of Trinity Inlet and it has become the port for Cairns. There is a Bulk Sugar Terminal here serving the many local farming communities. Here too is the HMAS Cairns Naval Patrol Boat Base where the Navy provides refits and various training support for the neighbouring Pacific Island nations. In case of cyclones, boats can be taken up Wahday Creek for more protection.
Take a scenic flight over the area to really view this terrific region. Fly out to Green Island, up to the Daintree or go west over the natural rainforest canopy to the mountain ranges. The panorama will astound you!
