Immerse yourself in one of the world's most spectacular reef destinations!
Heron Island is a true coral cay, located right on the outer Great Barrier Reef. The island is ribboned by sugar white sands, crystal clear waters and acres of brilliant coral with beautifully colored marine life. At this World Heritage-listed Marine National Park, all flora and fauna are protected, so the island is a nature lover's paradise where the emphasis is on enjoying natural beauty. Stress is replaced by a sense of adventure and days are filled with discovery.
Heron is world famous for its fantastic scuba diving and snorkeling. Experience some of Australia's best dive spots - more than 30 dive sites are available, half of which are only 15 minutes away due to the island's location right atop the outer Great Barrier Reef. This southern area of the reef has, to date, experienced very little coral bleaching due to cooler water temperatures.
Heron also offers many activities for non-divers such as guided island and reef walks, semi-submersible cruises and private beach picnics. An amazing array of animal and bird life can be discovered throughout the year, such as the delightful Green and Loggerhead turtles, nesting during our visit.
