St Pauls Community is one of two communities on Moa Island. It is located on the northern end of the Island, accessible by boat and airplane. Upon arrival at the Kubin airstrip, it is a 20 minute drive from the airstrip to St Pauls.

Moa Island is the second largest island in the Torres Strait. Similar to surrounding islands, Moa is characterised by mounds of rock and is lightly vegetated and well watered.
