Heron Island
Some of the world's best reef diving and exotic getaways

Just 72 Km north-east of Gladstone, Heron Island is a coral cay located on the Great Barrier Reef. It's famous with divers from around the world for its marine life and known as one of Australia's premier dive destinations. Here you can swim right off the beach to an endless garden of coral where the waters are literally teeming with beautifully coloured fish and marine life. More than 30 dive sites are available, half of which are only 15 minutes from the beach. Because there is a deep sea channel between Heron Island and Wistari Reef, the ability to explore the edge of the cay, while remaining in calm waters, is unequalled. The reef experience of Heron is exclusively for guests so you won't see any day trippers.
