Wilson Island is a tiny coral cay situated on the Great Barrier Reef, with a divine sweep of castor sugar sands that is home to many turtles and birds. Untainted, untouched and understated with luxurious safari style tent accommodation, only six on the entire island, enough for a group of just 12 guests at any one time. A real Glampers paradise!

... more

A private island, shared with 11 of your nearest and dearest, your own Chef and Bartender, and some of the world's most elusive creatures.

Dining at Wilson will take the palate on a culinary journey, enjoyed in the relaxed open air environment of the Longhouse. You are encouraged to treat the Longhouse as your own home. Treat yourself to refreshments and a novel of choice at the well stocked library anytime throughout the day and evening.

Days can be filled snorkelling and exploring the island, in-season turtle watching or bird nesting, or simply lazing in a hammock.

Wilson Island is the Great Barrier Reef as nature intended.
