Lizard Island Australia

This Lizard Island day tour starts with a low-level scenic flight from Cairns.

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 of about 10 square kilometres, with three smaller islands nearby.  Together, these islands form the Lizard Island Group, and their well-developed fringing Reef teeming with marine life, encircles the 10-meter-deep blue lagoon.

Lizard Island is 250 kilometres north of Cairns.  The Coral Sea surrounds the six tall islands.
