Lady Elliot Island Eco Resort

LADY ELLIOT ISLAND

Hotel

Lady Elliot Island is a coral bay located within a Marine National Park ‘Green’ Zone and is at the southernmost tip of the Great Barrier Reef. The island is renowned to be the ‘Home of the Manta Ray’ and has over 1200 different species of marine life in the surrounding waters including turtles and dolphins. You can simply grab your snorkel and step straight off the shore of the coral cay island and enjoy an average visibility of 30-40 metres all year round. The lagoon protects and nurtures the curiosity of beginners while a little further out experienced snorkelers and divers descend to explore the magic of the reef. Throughout the year there are a range of free, nature based activities including turtle nesting, turtle hatchlings, bird nesting and whale watching. Tour the reef in a glass bottom boat, learn to scuba dive, join one of the free guided tours or explore the island at your leisure. Access: Flights depart daily from Hervey Bay/Fraser Coast & Bundaberg. Flights are also available from the Gold Coast
