Lizard Island National Park consists of a remote group of five islands set in a turquoise sea, part of the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area. Lizard, the main island, has several sheltered, sandy beaches with easy access to beautiful coral and clam gardens. Snorkel in the sheltered, shallow waters of Watsons Bay. Following in the footsteps of the famous explorer, climb to Cooks Look (395 metres), or walk to the Blue Lagoon on the other side of the island. Bush camp near the beach at peaceful Watsons Bay. At Mary Watson's cottage, learn about a tragic episode in the island's history.
