Why we love it

Situated within a highly protected Green Zone, the island is a sanctuary for more than 1200 species of marine life. You’ll experience a genuine ecotourism holiday at this award-winning, nature-based resort that has the environment and sustainability at its heart.

Getting there

Flights depart to the island from Hervey Bay (just a 3-hour drive from Noosa), Bundaberg and Brisbane for day tours or overnight accommodation.

Things to do

Walk from the beach and straight into the crystal-clear waters that surround the resort. Snorkel (safe for beginners) and dive among the coral reefs and friendly turtles, brilliant fish, majestic manta rays and humpback whales (from June to October). You can even hear the whales sing underwater!
