Heron not available

So disappointed to find out accommodation we can afford over christmas this year is not available on Heron Island. We liked the idea that one could snorkel off the island and see a wealth of marine life. Could anyone tell us of a similar island than we could snorkel off and see a wealth of marine life without having to take trips off the island to snorkel. Thanks

Hi Milly,

Lady Elliot island has equally as good snorkelling, the resort is more low key, probably 3 star.

Thank you for your advice, have looked up Lady Elliot, looks like just the ticket, now got to work out how to get from Cairns to either Bundeberg or Hervey Bay!! Probably means we are only going to have a day in Cairns but wouldnt miss the experience of being on the reef. Thanks again for taking the time out to post answers.
