Piper Islands National Park

Piper Islands National Park is a national park in Far North Queensland, Australia. It lies 1977 km northwest of Brisbane. It comprises four small islands lying on the inner northern Great Barrier Reef off the eastern coast of the Cape York Peninsula in Temple Bay, between Cape Grenville and Fair Cape.


The islands have been identified by BirdLife International as an Important Bird Area (IBA) because they have supported over 1% of the world populations of pied imperial pigeons (with up to 4000 nests) and black noddies (up to 7500 nests).
