Description

Heron Island is a true coral cay, located right on the Great Barrier Reef. The island is ribboned by white sands, crystal clear waters and acres of coral with beautifully coloured marine life. At this World Heritage-listed Marine National Park all flora and fauna is protected, so the island is a nature lover's paradise, where the emphasis is on enjoying natural beauty. Stress is replaced by adventure, and your days are filled with discovery.

... more

Heron offers many activities such as guided island and reef walks, semi-submersible cruises and private beach picnics. An amazing array of animal and bird life can be discovered throughout the year, such as the delightful Green and Loggerhead Turtles. Heron is also world famous for its fantastic scuba diving and snorkelling. Experience some of Australia's best dive spots - more than 20 dive sites are available, half of which are only 15 minutes from the beach.

At certain times of the year, turtle nesting and hatchings take precedent over all other island activities.

Please note: check-in for departure to Heron Island is 10am at the Marina Ferry Terminal.
