Goold Island is a national park in Queensland (Australia), 1,250 km (780 mi) northwest of Brisbane. The island is close to the northern tip of Hinchinbrook Island off the coast from Cardwell in Rockingham Bay and is part of the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area. Covering 8.3 km2 (3.2 square miles) the island is located 17 km (10.6 mi) from shore. It is covered mostly with open eucalypt forest, rainforested gullies and semi permanent creek water.
For many thousands of years before non-indigenous peoples arrived into the region, Goold Island, neighbouring islands and surrounding seas were occupied, used and enjoyed by generations of the Bandjin peoples ancestors, leaving behind an array of stone fish traps and shell middens still to be found on and around the island to this day.
