Located off the coast of Queensland, right in the heart of the Southern Barrier Reef, Heron Island is home to a dazzling array of native wildlife ranging from rays and hordes of multi-coloured tropical fish to charming turtles and resident birds. The island boasts an information centre, dive boats and marine biologists who can guide you through the unique coral reef and point out the native birds, plants and turtles that call Heron home.

Make sure you pack the latest bestseller because there is limited Wi-Fi or mobile reception on the island. Instead you can look forward to reconnecting with the kids or your special someone while enjoying nature at its absolute best.

What You’ll Love...

The Resort – Located directly on the Southern Great Barrier Reef

Nature expert Sir David Attenborough said that the Great Barrier Reef is his favourite place on earth, and at the southernmost tip of this natural paradise lies Heron Island. As one of the only resorts situated directly on the reef, Heron Island Resort serves as an idyllic sun-drenched nature retreat that showcases sandy beaches with crystal clear waters and an endless garden of coral.

Heron Island Resort is an advanced eco-certified resort which has been built to minimise impact and maximise an understanding of its unique natural environment. Heron Island is also one of the few places in the world where you can witness nature’s most incredible show: the most vulnerable sea turtle species nesting and hatching when in season (check for hatching season before booking your trip).

The Room – Only a short walk to the beach from your private deck

Embrace the tropical weather when staying in a Turtle Room located on the ground floor. The room features a queen-size bed, en suite bathroom with shower, tea and coffee-making facilities, a cosy indoor seating area and a furnished private timber deck that looks out across the garden and is just a short stroll from the beach. As part of the eco ethos, there's no air-conditioning, just ceiling fans in most of the resort's rooms.

VIP UPGRADE: Get even closer to the beach when you upgrade to a Reef Room, just steps away from the crystal-clear waters of the Coral Sea. Inside you’ll find a queen-size bed, plus a comfy day bed, lounge area and a private balcony or deck located close to the beach, with partial reef and water views through a canopy of trees.

FAMILY UPGRADE: Travelling with kids? Upgrade to a Turtle Family Room, perfect for families. Located just a short walk away from the beach and close to the resort's facilities, the room features a queen and two single beds, a modern bathroom and a spacious timber deck and outdoor area. Travel with ease, as three kids aged 12 years and under stay for free with daily breakfast, nightly dinners and snorkelling equipment.

CELEBRITY UPGRADE: Treat the family to the ultimate island escape when you upgrade to a Reef Family Room, just steps away from the beach and sleeping up to five people. This spacious room boasts a lounge area, a modern bathroom and water views through a canopy of beachside trees. Travel with ease, as three kids aged 12 years and under stay for free with daily breakfast, nightly dinners and snorkelling equipment.

BONUS: Stay seven nights and receive a complimentary sunset cruise where you'll glide through the waters of the Great Barrier Reef.

The Food – Daily breakfast, nightly dinners, a romantic picnic and more

Fuel up for a fun day exploring the island with daily buffet breakfast served at the resort’s in-house Shearwater Restaurant, where you can tuck into tempting options in a tropical setting.

Each night, you will be treated to a delicious dinner at Shearwater Restaurant: choose from the extensive a la carte menu and indulge in sumptuous buffet spreads featuring meat and Mediterranean fare on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays (seafood buffet available for a surcharge).

Surprise a loved one with a romantic picnic experience with a complimentary gourmet picnic hamper and bottle of wine for you to enjoy anywhere on the island. You'll also receive an AU$100 resort credit per room to use towards food and beverages. Plus, you'll love unwinding each evening at Baillie's Bar with a complimentary drink per person (your choice of beer, wine or sparkling).

See & Do – Discover the island with an I.Spy Semi- Submersible experience, a variety of complimentary resort activities & AU$50 spa credit per room

One of the world's seven natural wonders, the Great Barrier Reef is the ocean's most spectacular playground, and Heron Island Resort is the perfect starting point for your underwater adventures: enjoy a 20% discount for PADI Discover Scuba Diving Course, so you can learn how to dive in the most beautiful waters in the world, or decide to snorkel the crystal clear waters of the Coral Sea in search of turtles and colorful fish with the complimentary snorkelling gear.

Enjoy an incredible I.Spy Semi- Submersible experience, so you can explore beneath the waves and see the vibrant marine life in their natural habitat, or relax with a $50 Spa voucher per room, to be used at the blissful on-site Spa, Aqua Soul Spa.
