Islands of the Great Barrier Reef Few natural wonders command as much attention as the Great Barrier Reef, and scattered along its 2,300km length lie some of the world’s most beautiful tropical island paradises, only a handful of which are inhabited. To spend time here is to truly immerse yourself in one of Australia’s greatest natural spectacles.

LADY ELLIOT ISLAND ECO RESORT 3 H Lady Elliot Island is located at the Southern tip of the Great Barrier Reef in the highly protected Green Zone and is accessible by scenic flight from Brisbane, the Gold Coast, or Hervey Bay and Bundaberg. Lady Elliot Island Eco Resort is a superb resort from which to explore the rich marine wildlife that can be found in this unique region. The island’s shoreline is teeming with live corals and is known as the ‘Home of the Manta Ray’ — famous for a resident population of over 175 manta rays. Depending on the time of year you may be able to experience turtle nesting/hatchlings emerging from the sand, birds nesting or humpback whales. There are a number of great dive sites surrounding the island, and other activities include snorkelling and glass bottom boat tours. On the same day you can enjoy a spectacular sunrise on Sunrise Beach and on the western side of the island see the last fiery rays of the day on Sunset Beach.
