Lizard Island Day Tour Escape the world for the day
This Lizard Island day tour starts with a low-level scenic flight from Cairns heading north to Lizard Island.
You will have six hours to explore, swim, and swim in this pristine location during your day.
For the past 30 years, this area has been attracting the World’s top Marine Biologists and has become home to one of the world’s most important reef research stations.
Lizard Island is a granite island about 10 square kilometres in size, with 3 smaller islands nearby. Together these islands form the Lizard Island Group, and their well-developed fringing reef teeming with marine life encircles the 10-metre deep blue lagoon.
Take your pick of a secluded beach or take part in a tour of the island.
Having 23 white sandy beaches, undisturbed, Lizard Island is considered one of Australia’s most exclusive destinations for the occasional footprints.
It retains a certain mystique due to its remote location.
When you arrive on the day, it is yours to do as you wish. You can choose to relax alone on a secluded beach.
Enjoy the company of a small group on a guided tour. Snorkel the world-famous Clam Garden or take a walk to the “Blue Lagoon”.
