The island has a fascinating history. The name Lizard Island was given by Captain Cook when he ventured through in 1770. By the 1860s fishermen used the island waters to capture sea cucumber that were sold to Asia. In 1879, Captain Robert Watson who was a sea cucumber fisherman with his wife Mary Watson, two servants and baby, lived on the island. They modified an empty cottage left on the island by the crew of the Julia Percy. The cottage ruins remain today. During our Cooks Look guided tour you will learn further detail about this extraordinary location.
