Lady Elliot Island is a coral cay located at the southern tip of the world Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef.
Lady Elliot Island Eco Resort is one of only three island resorts located right on the Great Barrier Reef. It offers a spectacular island holiday destination and a relaxing escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The island resort is very low-key and environmentally friendly, allowing you to encounter turtles, dolphins, a large variety of coral, fish and giant manta rays, and LOTS of sea birds.
The island eco-system is teeming with vibrant life, with some of the best and most colourful snorkelling and reef diving on the east coast of Australia. Experience the best of the Great Barrier Reef – the most colourful & diverse coral & marine life and the best place in the world to swim with Manta Rays! See giant Loggerhead & Green turtles nesting and hatching (Nov – Apr) and be surrounded by humpback whales (Jul – Oct). Swim with dolphins and be amazed by the thousands of nesting sea birds.
Your Lady Elliot adventure is “self-guided”, with a myriad of tours and ranger guided activities for you to choose from. Participate in whatever you want, or if you wish to just spend a few hours snorkelling the reef – enjoy!

"We took our Mum to see the whales to tick off an experience she has always longed for. Mum is almost 90 and in a wheelchair. The staff on Quick Cat were absolutely amazing and attentive making sure she had a wonderful time. Thank you so much loved every minute."
"Expert and passionate knowledge of Hervey Bay and its surroundings. Highly recommended."
"It was so easy to plan our trip and book online. We hired a 4WD and drove from Noosa to Fraser Island along the beach, it was the best thing I have ever done."

"We travelled through the Sunshine Coast and onto Hervey Bay and Fraser Island. I loved the hinterland and beaches, most beautiful place to hike & ride. Thank you “Nature Coast Australia”, can’t wait to visit again."
"It was so easy to see all the whale watching tours in one place and choose the right one for us. No where beats Hervey Bay for whale watching!"
"I have always wanted to go to Fraser Island and the day tour we booked was perfect, we want to come back for longer!"

"My favourite tour was the remote west coast of Fraser Island. It was amazing and such a surprise how beautiful it is. Hervey Bay has some wonderful beaches & tours."
"I loved the Sunshine Coast Hinterland especially the quaint village of Maleny, lovely shops & food. The view to the Glasshouse Mountains is spectacular, next time I will hike them."
"We loved our trip to Lady Elliot Island, the reef is healthy and there are heaps of large turtles, manta rays and lots of fish to see when snorkelling, we didn't want to leave."
