(Racing Towards Langford Island courtesy tourism Queensland)
Langford Island is two nautical miles south of Hayman Island and west of Hook Island. It is a relatively small (about 10 hectares), rocky, wooded island 56 metres high. It is unique in some respects, being a cross between a continental island and a coral cay. An extensive sand spit spreads out to its south and southeast. This is a great place for picking up a mooring and snorkelling its northern shelf, or having lunch on its beautiful sandy spit.
If approaching from the west, keep well outside Bird Island. Reef protection buoys have been installed along Langford’s eastern reef. Anchor outside an imaginary line
straight between these buoys if you cannot find a public mooring.
Depth: 9 - 14 metres
Bottom: Sand and coral
Anchor outside an imaginary line between the white triangle reef marker buoys if you cannot find a public mooring to pick up. Watch out for the scattered bommies lying along
the reef margin.
