The Great Barrier Reef

Lizard Island is on the Great Barrier Reef – meaning the reef and all of its wonders are yours to explore straight off the beach or just a short boat trip away.

The Great Barrier Reef spans over 2300 kilometres and is listed as one of the Natural Wonders of the world.

Lizard Island’s unique location on the reef places it at the center of inner and outer reef systems as well as fringing reefs; all forming a critical part of the eco-system that is home to the most diverse, colourful and intriguing marine animal and plant life.

The wonders of Lizard Island’s location means that you have the rare privilege of simply stepping off the beach and snorkeling onto parts of the reef- witnessing the wonders of Giant Clam gardens and schools of tropical fish both big (our resident Groper, Simon, is over 200 kilos and likes to hang about close to shore) and small, manta rays, turtles and coral. Literally minutes by boat from the inner and outer reef systems with many fringing reefs to stop and explore on the way.

No photographs can prepare you for the wonders, colours and diversity of marine and plant life in the waters around Lizard Island – so we invite you to visit us and witness why Lizard Island is like nowhere else.
