Heron Island QLD, Australia

Among the music of seabirds, tracks of turtles and multi-colored clouds of fish, the feeling that you're a guest of nature itself is inescapable at Heron Island.

Located in a World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, Heron Island offers 112 room, suite and beach house accommodation. It is the only hotel accommodation on Heron Island and one of the few locations on the planet where you can walk from your room to the beach and literally dive into one of the 7 Wonders of the World.

Find Tranquility

Rooms at the Heron Island Resort feature bright living areas, which open onto balconies or terraces with forest or sea views. Each has a fridge and tea/coffee making facilities. All include beach towels and sun umbrellas.

Heron Island Resort has a day spa offering massages and facials. The tour desk organizes a variety of diving and snorkeling tours around many Great Barrier Reef locations.

Heron Island is easily accessible via ferry transfer departing from Gladstone Marina or if you want to tick a scenic flight surveying this special part of the Great Barrier Reef off your bucket list, you can catch a seaplane or helicopter from the airport to kick off your stay.

Things to do on the Great Barrier Reef

Reef walking, viewing underwater life from semi-submersible, watching the sun set over the ocean - you become part of a community caught up in the timeless evolution of the world's largest living thing - the Great Barrier Reef.

Like much of the Southern Great Barrier Reef it is a coral cay with clear, aquamarine ocean meeting a horizon of blue skies and you will be able to soak in gorgeous sunrises and sunsets during your stay.

Instead of the famous five you can tick off nature's famous eight here—turtles, manta rays, reef sharks, gropers, clown fish, Maori Wrasse, Humpback Whales (June to October) and dolphins. This is a scuba divers paradise with 20 sites easily accessible from Heron Island including the famous Heron Bommie and you can snorkel right off your doorstep in this piece of island paradise.

Join one of the resident Naturalist Guides to learn about the fascinating reef ecosystem, the flora and fauna of Heron Island and the Great Barrier Reef or the constellations of the night sky.
