Kick back and enjoy the tranquility of Lady Elliot Island

Lady Elliot is a true coral cay located on the southern tip of Australia's iconic Great Barrier Reef, 80km north-east of Bundaberg and just north of Fraser Island. The Island is situated within a highly protected Green Zone of the Marine National Park and is a sanctuary for over 1,200 species of marine life. Lady Elliot Island is regarded as one of the best diving and snorkelling locations on the Great Barrier Reef and is renowned for its healthy coral reef and abundance of turtles, manta rays, reef sharks and the entire cast of Finding Nemo.

Lady Elliot Island is known as the Home of the Manta Ray and these giant kites of the sea can be seen feeding around the island throughout the year, but aggregate in larger numbers during the winter months. Three species of sea turtles frequent Lady Elliot Island throughout the year and Green and Loggerhead turtles are the only ones that nest on the Island between November and March. The hatchlings make their journey to the ocean from February to April. From June to October, the graceful Humpback Whales migrate past Lady Elliot Island. Regular sightings occur on the scenic flights, from the glass bottom boat, whilst snorkelling or diving and from the Island's beaches. Lady Elliot Island is also one of the most significant seabird breeding sites in the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area.

The main goal is to provide guests with life changing moments and world class experiences through natural encounters, both above and below the water. Scenic flights to Lady Elliot Island depart daily from the Gold Coast, Brisbane (Redcliffe), Hervey Bay/Fraser Coast or Bundaberg.
