Lizard Island from the air

On the Great Barrier Reef

Lizard Island is the northern most island resort on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef - 240 kilometres north of Cairns.

Situated 240 kilometres north of Cairns and 27 kilometres off the Queensland coastline, Lizard Island is a one-hour scenic flight from Cairns, travelling over a 200 kilometres of the Great Barrier Reef. It is here that you will gain your first glimpse of the beauty, scale and diversity of the reef. It is truly a breathtaking way to arrive at the island.

Lizard Island’s amazing location directly on the Great Barrier Reef means that the reef is literally on your door step. So close and convenient for you to explore straight off the beach or by taking a short boat trip to the inner and outer reefs. This is just one of our natural wonders that makes Lizard Island like nowhere else.
