Full Interactive Lady Elliot Island Australian Travel Map

Lady Elliot Island is on the southern end of the Great Barrier Reef. It is small – you can walk around it in about an hour. It is out there on its own – no other island nearby. Zoom out on the Lady Elliot Island Australian Travel Map to see what I mean. Nothing but blue!

Getting to Lady Elliot Island

The Lady Elliot Island Resort has its own plane service to and from the Island. The plane is a short takeoff and landing craft, with a high wing and a boxy body. When you see the Island come into view, then zoom over the beach to land on the runway just meters from the beach, you can see the blue of the water at the other end of the runway. It is a short landing aircraft, alright. The pilot needs the short takeoff part of the name to get you out of there. Zoom in on the Lady Elliot Island Australian Travel Map to get a feel for this great place to spend a few days.

All kidding aside, this is perfectly safe. Flights leave from the Gold Coast, Brisbane and Bundaberg. Book your flights when you book the Resort.

Resort Facilities: There are several different levels of accommodation at the Lady Elliot Island Eco-Resort. Zoom in on the Lady Elliot Island Australian Travel Map and you will see the resort in the lower right corner of the Island. Facilities include: The Beachfront Lagoon Bar, The Reef Education Centre and a PADI Dive shop. Lady Elliot is a place where you go for the diving, snorkeling and wildlife. It is not your typical sit by the pool resort.

Activities: The lagoon covers the entire east side of the Island, while the west side drops off into deep water very quickly. Snorkeling in the lagoon on the east – diving on the west. The Reef walking at low tide is exceptional. Guides will take you and explain the various life forms. Turtles hatch on Lady Elliot Island, and if you are in season, there is no greater thrill than to see the new hatchlings scramble their way down the beach.
