    Destination Information

    Queensland

    Queensland is full of exciting areas to explore, where you can have new adventures and make lasting memories. Bask in the sun along the seemingly endless coastline, go trekking through the vast expanse of the outback, and go for a hike through the luscious rainforest that sweeps along the coast.

    Dive and snorkel along the biggest coral reef in the world, the Great Barrier Reef, and take time out to explore the tropical islands that dot this natural wonder. You won’t be short of things to do in this glorious state.

    Heron Island Resort

    Experience nature at its best on Heron Island. World-famous for its spectacular coral reef and a sanctuary for an extraordinary variety of marine life. This natural coral cay provides a genuine eco-experience, a unique opportunity to witness the magic of the world’s largest coral reef.

    At Heron Island, you are not merely a hotel guest; you are a guest of nature – sleeping, playing and exploring a protected sanctuary overlooking the Great Barrier Reef. All rooms offer relaxed, low-key comfort and immediate access to crystal clear waters. With 20 dive sites only minutes from the jetty, Heron Island is known the world over for its excellent Great Barrier Reef dive sites, coral gardens and pinnacles.

    The scuba diving is so good that Jacques Cousteau listed Heron Bommie as one of his top 10 favourite dive sites. The waters around Heron Island are relatively shallow and teeming with reef fish, turtles, manta rays, reef sharks, and an endless variety of marine invertebrates. Around 60% of the 1,500 species of fish, and approximately 72% of the coral species found on the Great Barrier Reef call the waters around Heron Island home.

    Heron Island caters to all levels of diving enthusiasts from the novice to experienced divers and offers PADI™ certified courses as well.
