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 89 kms off the coast of Queensland, so it's not just another resort near the Great Barrier Reef, it's the premier resort on the Great Barrier Reef. You don’t have to take any special boat trips to experience this wonder of the world. The reef, with a myriad of colourful coral and reef fish, is right here, 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 an easy vacation choice for divers, swimmers, and people who love to snorkel. The resort also offers an array of activity options for those who like to relax, explore and laze on beaches far from crowds, with no reef “day-trippers” to spoil the peace and quiet.
