Welcome to Heron Island
“There aren't many places on Earth where you can stay, sleep and play on one of The 7 Wonders Of The World.”
˜ Jeff and May Moore, Port Macquarie
If you're a nature lover, Heron Island really is a special place. It's a natural coral cay 89kms off the coast of Queensland, so it's not another Great Barrier Reef resort, it's a resort on the Great Barrier Reef. You don’t have to take any special boat trips to experience one of the wonders of the world. The reef, with a myriad of colourful coral and reef fish, is right there, at your fingertips, right off the beach.
In the crystal clear aquamarine waters surrounding the island, stunning coral gardens and sea creatures great and small flourish in abundance and colour. They make Heron Island a natural place for divers, swimmers, and people who love to snorkel. The resort also offers an array of choices for those who like to explore and laze on beaches far from crowds, with no reef “day-trippers” to spoil the peace and quiet.
