Lady Elliot is a coral cay located on the southern tip of Australia's iconic Great Barrier Reef, 80kms north-east of Bundaberg, nestled between Fraser Island and Lady Musgrave Island. The Island is situated within a highly protected ’Green Zone’ of the Marine National Park and is a sanctuary for over 1,200 species of marine life. Lady Elliot Island is regarded as one of the best snorkelling and diving locations on the Great Barrier Reef and is renowned for its healthy coral reef and abundance of turtles, manta rays, reef sharks and the entire cast of ‘Finding Nemo’. Guests can snorkel straight off the beach and they don’t have to worry about stingers.

Lonely Planet has recently voted Lady Elliot Island # 2 of “The 7 best beaches for snorkelling around the world”
