Lizard Island Resort, Lizard Island

Outstanding in every respect, the unique pleasures of Lizard Island have created an idyllic retreat second to none. Australia’s northernmost resort, Lizard is located right on the spectacular Great Barrier Reef, fringed with colourful coral reefs and 24 powdery white beaches. It is little wonder that this tranquil escape has won a host of prestigious national and international awards for excellence. Lizard truly is one of a kind.

Sensational diving opportunities abound around this Marine National Park, including the famous Cod Hole, where you’ll come face to face with a massive, yet curious Potato Cod swimming right up to inspect you with child-like curiosity.

Snorkellers are rewarded for little effort with coral gardens, brightly coloured tropical fish and giant clams just moments from the island’s beaches. Discover secluded, pristine beaches by foot or by motorised dinghy with a gourmet picnic just for two. Fishing enthusiasts can charter the “Fascination” for a day of exhilarating game fishing. Try bushwalking, sailing, a glass bottom boat trip, or perhaps indulge in the serenity and relaxation of a pampering treatment at the luxurious Azure Spa.

Dining is one of Lizard Island’s many pleasures. Osprey’s Restaurant embodies the Resort’s understated elegance. The menu, which changes daily, is fresh and creative, showcasing the finest local produce and freshest seafood.

Each of the 40 villas on Voyages Lizard Island is elegant and spacious, with either ocean or beach views. All meals and many island activities are included.
