Lady Elliot Island

Experience the wonders of the incredible Great Barrier Reef and combine your Noosa holiday with a trip to the hidden gem of Lady Elliot Island Eco Resort. Noosa is a gateway to this Natural Wonder of the World, and you can be there in just 3 hours.

Take a day trip or overnight stay for a total nature immersion on Lady Elliot Island Eco Resort, the southern-most island on the Great Barrier Reef.

Walk from the beach and straight into the crystal-clear waters that surround Lady Elliot Island Eco Resort. Snorkel (safe for beginners) and dive among the coral reefs and friendly turtles, brilliant fish, majestic manta rays and Humpback Whales (from May to October). You can even hear the whales sing underwater!

Go on reef and nature walks (there are no roads or cars), see turtles nesting and hatching, and spot a wonderful array of sea birds who call this island paradise home.

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.

Choose your style of accommodation – eco cabins, beachfront units, glamping tents, reef units or garden units.

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