Description

Lady Elliot Island is on the southern tip of Australia’s iconic Great Barrier Reef. The island is regarded as one of the best diving and snorkeling locations on the reef and is famous for its unspoilt coral reef and amazing array of spectacular marine life. Lady Elliot has introduced a range of innovative and sustainable environmental practices to ensure that the island and its surrounding reef area remain in pristine condition.Lady Elliot Island features a low-key Eco Resort focused on providing guests with a genuine eco-tourism experience.

Species sighted in this area

Lady Elliot Island’s pristine and easily accessed lagoons and reefs are home to over 1,200 different species of marine life. The waters attract a wide variety of incredible large marine life, including whales, dolphins, many kinds of rays, and numerous fish. Small marine life is also abundant and much of it is easily discovered by reef walking or snorkelling. The Island is home to several species of turtles and our staff and guests are treated to a range of free, nature based live entertainment experiences with turtles clambering up the beach to lay their eggs (November - February), followed by the turtle hatchlings dashing their way into the water (February - May). Lady Elliot Island is known as the ‘Home of the Manta Ray’, and research has identified over 700 individual manta rays in the surrounding waters. That makes for pretty good odds of spotting one as you are flying to/from the Island, or while you are snorkelling, diving or on the glass bottom boat. Between May and November, humpback whales grace the waters surrounding Lady Elliot Island on their annual migration from the Antarctic, providing spectacular acrobatic displays and a whale song soundtrack for snorkellers and divers.
