Lizard Island (Queensland, Australia)

Lizard Island was famous as Dyiigurra to Dingaal Aboriginal people. Dyiigurra was regarded as a sacred site and was used for the initiation of young males as well as for the harvesting of turtles, dugongs, fish and shellfish. The Dingaal believed Lizard group had been created in Dreamtime. They saw it as stingray with Lizard Island constituting the body and the other islands forming the tail. Local Dingiil Aboriginals call it "Jiigurru".

The name "Lizard Island" was given by Captain Cook on August 12, 1770, when he passed it. He commented that the only land Animals they saw there were Lizards, and those seemed to be plenty, which occasioned his naming the Island Lizard Island. Captain Cook climbed the peak on the island to chart a course to sea through the reefs which confronted him and since then island's summit has been called ‘Cook's Look’.

In 1939, all islands in the Lizard Island Group were declared a national park, currently administered by Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service. Lizard Island is also part of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park.
