Lady Elliot Island

Lady Elliot Island is the southern-most coral cay of the Great Barrier Reef, Australia. The island lies 46 nautical miles (85 km; 53 mi) north-east of Bundaberg and covers an area of approximately 40 hectares (99 acres). The island is home to a small eco resort and an airstrip, which is serviced daily by flights from Bundaberg, Hervey Bay, Maroochydore, Brisbane and the Gold Coast. Lady Elliot Island Eco Resort offers a range of comfortable accommodation options, with each suite, unit, room and cabin designed to minimise impact on the island while enriching guests’ experience of the environment and seasonal wildlife.

Marine National Park Green Zones protect the biodiversity within the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park by protecting important breeding and nursery areas such as seagrass beds, mangrove communities, deepwater shoals and reefs.

The island is particularly renowned for its scuba diving and snorkelling, as its location far offshore at the southern end of the Great Barrier Reef results in unrivalled water clarity. Step straight off the beach and snorkel, swim or dive to explore an underwater world of brilliantly coloured marine life, join one of the guided activities or simply relax and soak in the tranquil island atmosphere. Guided activities on the island include reef walking, glass bottom boat/guided snorkel tours, island history tours, bird watching tours and turtle treks in season.
