Among the indigenous Badtjala people the island was called K’Gari after Princess K’gari the spirit who in legend helped make this part of the world and loved it so much that she asked to be allowed to stay there. James Cook thought it was part of the mainland and hence described it as Great Sandy Peninsula but when Captain William Lawreance Edwardson in the Snapper proved that it was an island it became known as Great Sandy Island until its name change in 1842.[/su_spoiler]
