Why you should visit Heron Island?

If you are wanting to stay at a true Coral Cay,(see FAQs) Heron Island is such a place, right on the Great Barrier Reef. The waters are abundant with beautiful tropical fish and other marine life and you can swim off the beach amongst them all as they dart throughout the magnificent coral.

Located north east of Bundeberg Heron isindeed a very beautiful island. There are no daytrippers to Heron, the reef experience is exclusively for the islands guests only.

At Heron you can swim straight off the beach. There is a seemingly endless garden of coral where the waters are literally teeming with beautifully coloured fish and marine life.

This is quite a rare experience in the world today and combined with Herons relaxed lifestyle, makes for a unique and layed back vacation. You can explore and discover some of the natural attractions that have made Heron Island world famous.

If this sounds too demanding, there’s always the pool and/or a quiet drink at the Pandanus Lounge. And when you’ve recharged the batteries there’s the live entertainment to enjoy after a scrumptious dinner. Heron prides itself on high standards of food and service and it’s all included in the price.

Heron has a wonderful bird life also which includes thousands of Noddy Terns.

Whether it’s full on entertainment and activities, total relaxation or a combination of both, you’ll find it all on Heron.
