A beautiful jewel of an island with amazing wildlife and scenery. Turtles by the hundreds coming in each night for those committed enough to come out at night to watch. Lots of turtles going back to see for those that don't mind a bit of...More
We stayed on Heron Island as a family just before Christmas. What a terrible place. The wonderful wildlife aside, I would strongly recommend you stay elsewhere on the barrier reef

Hi LunaNewY snorkelling straight off the beach on Heron Island to explore the wonders of the Great Barrier Reef in the crystal clear blue water where you can swim with turtles, rays, reef sharks and an amazing array of fish is a very family friendly experience.There are a variety of activities which will help your children learn about and appreciate the incredible marine life that are resident in and around the island. There is a Semi-submersible trip with a naturalist guide so they can enjoy and learn about the reef without getting wet, nature slide show presentations and marine documentaries, guided reef walks, complimentary snorkelling lessons in the pool and our very popular junior ranger program during school holidays.
