Lizard Island Resort
Lizard Island Resort is the only accommodation found within a thousand hectare national park directly on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. Its 40 tropical garden rooms and ocean-view suites and villas with private balconies offer easy access to 24 private white-sand beaches and an abundance of water-based activities. Spend your days exploring the surrounding coral formations and marine life around Anchor or Watson’s Bays, such as the renowned Giant Clams Garden and other inner and outer coral, lagoon and ribbon reef locations. Make the most of the complimentary stand up paddle boards, sea kayaks, snorkeling gear, and motorized dinghies to soak in the stunning views and beachside relaxation. Guests may also choose to climb Cook’s Look, the island’s highest point, learn about the local flora and fauna on walks across the island with a naturalist guide, or venture back out on the water for sailing or glass-bottom boating.
When you’ve had your fill of adventure for the day, savor a little beachside dining, or enjoy a drink at the driftwood bar. The resort offers numerous lounges and daybeds throughout, so there’s always a nice place to kick back and relax.
Lizard Island is a great private beach experience that can pair with other adventure activities in Queensland – exploring the dramatic Glasshouse Mountains, the ancient and ecologically diverse Daintree Rainforest, or coastal city life.
