If you’re a nature lover, Heron Island really is a special place. It’s a natural coral cay 89kms off the coast of Queensland, so it’s not another Great Barrier Reef resort, it’s a resort on the Great Barrier Reef. You don’t have to take any special boat trips to experience one of the wonders of the world. The reef, with a myriad of colourful coral and reef fish, is right there, at your fingertips, right off the beach.
In the crystal clear aquamarine waters surrounding the island, stunning coral gardens and sea creatures great and small flourish in abundance and colour. It makes Heron Island a natural place for divers, swimmers, and people who love to snorkel. It also offers an array of choices for those who like to explore and laze on beaches far from crowds , with no reef ‘day-trippers’ to spoil the peace and quiet.
Of course all the wildlife isn’t purely aquatic, Green turtles have made the beaches on the island their nesting home. So too have birds of all sizes and kinds, in numbers you simply will not believe. Little wonder that Heron Island is part of a World Heritage listed area and home to one of Australia’s premier marine research stations. The reef and its surroundings are in pristine condition. Meticulous planning has gone into making sure the environment and all the wildlife on the island are protected at all costs.
