Landing, Exploring Lizard Island On The Great Barrier Reef

Lizard Island is known as the runaway destination for the rich and famous and for the loved up couples looking to escape the everyday world and travelator we all seem to be on day and night.

The island is a total of 1013 hectares and has 23 pure white sand beaches. Lizard Island is far from any farming or industrial runoff so the coral reefs and the marine life are in far more abundance and higher quality than other destinations.

Get your snorkel gear on and start ticking the Great Barrier Reefs Great 8 off your list, Giant clams, Clownfish, Manta Rays, Cheeky Maori Wrasse, sociable Potato Cod, Sharks (plural not singular), Sea Turtles and of course the mighty Whales.

Lizard Island is just 132 nautical miles from the northwest of Cairns city.

Your time on Lizard Island is your own you just need to advise us if you would enjoy a guided tour with the group for the day or to be left alone to explore the island and its beaches for the next 6 hours.

The day on Lizard Island is yours to dictate – snorkel the world famous clam garden, relax in the shade of Casuarina trees at Watson’s Bay, take a walk to the famous Blue Lagoon or take a bush walking trail to Cooks Look and Chinaman’s Ridge.
