Snorkelling - Lady Elliot Island Eco Resort

Snorkelling

Lady Elliot Island is the most southerly island within the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, making it the closest reef island to all southern capitals. The island lies 80 Kilometres north east of Bundaberg and is a popular destination for families and leisure groups with an interest in the Great Barrier Reef.

Accommodation ranges from beach front suites overlooking a coral lagoon to tent cabins, or the 'Shearwater Bunkrooms' providing accommodation for up to six people with private facilities.

Turtle nesting and hatching occur seasonally in front of Island Suites. An abundance of nature including nesting seabirds and humpback whales, also seasonal, brings nature to your doorstep.

Lady Elliot Island's natural beauty and unique environment has earned its place as part of a World Heritage listed area. Guided nature and reef walks allows you to explore the island, while snorkelling, diving and glass bottom boat tours let you discover the magic of the sea. Scuba divers may come face to face with a manta ray or moray eel and snorkellers can see the giant rainbow coloured parrot fish or the beautiful coral trout.
