Lizard Island Resort - Great Barrier Reef

As the northern most resort on the Great Barrier Reef, and a luxury lodge of Australia, Lizard Island is truly secluded from the rest of the world. This is just one wonderful Lizard Island fact that makes it like nowhere else. The hour flight from Cairns allows you to take in the true majesty and scale of the reef, and the resort is literally on the reef - no long boat rides are needed to enjoy one of the greatest natural wonders of the world.
