Lizard Island is one of a kind - a work of nature's art. Located right on the Great Barrier Reef. It is a private paradise with 24 powdery white beaches.
Lizard Island Resort is a premier island resort of Australia. Being right on the Great Barrier Reef is rare enough, but on Lizard Island you get the full spectrum - both the inner and outer reef experience.
If you are looking for something out of the ordinary, then Lizard Island should be top of the list. This is without question one of Australia's premier resorts.
Here you can snorkel off a secluded beach to discover a garden of giant clams, many a metre long and some reputed to be over 120 years old. And there are 23 soft, powdery white beaches just waiting to be explored.
Diving is also a special activity undertaken on Lizard Island. Lizard Island is renowned for its fishing and dive sites. At the world famous 'Cod Hole', you'll come face to face with massive yet curious potato cod swimming right up to inspect you with child-like curiosity.
Whilst the fish may not respect your privacy, we certainly will. In fact, we'll pack a picnic lunch for two and guide you to a 'private beach' to enjoy this magic location undisturbed.
There are many magnificent walks, and on at least one you can expect to glimpse a monitor, the lizard after which the island was named. Healthy appetites are then rewarded with superb dining - an eclectic menu with European and Asian influence.
You'll find all meals and most activities are included in the tariff and although remote, access is easy.
