Warraber Island


Warraber Island is also known as Sue.

Like most of the islands in the central group, it is a real coral cay island.



It belongs to the group called the Three Sisters,


... where along with Bet Islet and Poll Islet, Sue Islet is the central one.

Cute Streets of Warraber Island

The coral cay means that the whole island is surrounded by beach.

But, apart from that, there are also the cute narrow streets, typical for the central islands.

Lined by coconut palms and frangipani trees.

And like the other central islands in particular, it is a very friendly place.
