Heron Island

Heron Island is an amazing tropical holiday destination. 2 hours by boat from Gladstone, Heron Island is located in its own coral cay deep in the Great Barrier Reef. Listed as a Marine National Park the island is surrounded coral, teeming with fish life. Beautiful white sandy beaches circle most of Heron, with crystal clear water beyond that, but it’s the local wildlife that visitors come for from around the world. Swim or scuba dive, looking for Green and Loggerhead turtles and many other reef fish. The amount of bird life is truly amazing with birds like Black Noddies, Mutton Birds, Reef Herons, Ruddy Turn-stones, Eastern Golden Plovers and Wedge-tail Shearwaters just to name a few to visit the island. Humpback whales are a favourite with the tourists when they are active between June and October.
