Local Info

Rising from the blue waters of the Great Barrier Reef to the north of Cooktown, Lizard Island is the perfect spot from which to explore this coral wonderland for tourists and scientists alike. For nearly three decades, the waters around Lizard have been attracting the world's top marine biologists and the island has become home to one of the most important reef research stations in the world. The coral reefs surrounding Lizard have always been the island's main attraction - even if not always a desired one.

Famous English navigator James Cook set foot on the island back in 1770, climbing to its summit in a desperate bid to find a way out of the labyrinth of reefs he had found himself trapped within. At that time, naturalist Joseph Banks was to lament in his journal that he had too little time to study the wealth of strange creatures he saw in the waters of the Great Barrier Reef. Two centuries later biologists like David Bellwood, Uli Siebeck and Jeff Leis are finally realising Banks' dreams. At Lizard, scientists have been exploring the intricacies of fish social life, the mysteries of reef growth and the spectacle of mass spawning. It's important work. With coral reefs in decline around the tropics, the work being done on Lizard Island is providing the vital clues to reef health, growth and maintenance. With summer on the way, it's the perfect time to follow some of those researchers and share their amazing discoveries.
Lizard Island is one of a kind. Located in one of the richest areas of the Great Barrier Reef and just an hour's flight north of Cairns, it's a nature's work of art. Outstanding in every respect, the unique pleasures of Voyage's Lizard Island have created an idyllic retreat second to none.
Lizard is located right on the spectacular Great Barrier Reef, fringed with colourful coral reefs and 24 powdery-white beaches. It is little wonder that this tranquil escape has won a host of prestigious national and international awards for excellence. Sensational diving opportunities abound around this Marine National Park, including the famous Cod Hole, where you'll come face to face with a massive, yet curious Potato Cod swimming right up to inspect you with childlike curiosity. Snorkelers are rewarded for little effort with coral gardens, brightly colored tropical fish and giant clams, just moments from the island's beaches. Discover secluded, pristine beaches by foot or by motorised dinghy with a gourmet picnic just for two. Fishing enthusiasts can charter the "Fascination" for a day of exhilarating game fishing. Try bushwalking, sailing, a glass bottom boat trip, or perhaps indulge in the serenity and relaxation of a pampering treatment at the luxurious Azure Spa. Dining is one of Lizard Island's many pleasures. Osprey's Restaurant embodies the Resort's understated elegance. The menu, which changes daily, is fresh and creative, showcasing the finest local produce and freshest seafood. Each of the 40 villas on Voyages Lizard Island is elegant and spacious, with either ocean or beach views. All meals and many island activities are included.
