“Culinary Genius on a BBQ on an Island Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

Lindesay is a superbly talented cook - serving up the most sumptuous dishes, using whatever has come from the mainland (via Heron Island) and a BBQ.
We will be back to dine in such fine style with Margie and Lindesay soon!

“Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

As soon as we arrived on the island we were welcomed by our hosts, Gerri and Lyndsey, who made us feel comfortable and relaxed immediately. This tiny island is beautiful. The snorkelling just of the beach is great. There is an abundance of marine life and bird life around the island. The tents are lovely. We had a beautiful view of the ocean and it was so relaxing to fall asleep listening to the sound of the waves. The shower and toilet block is not far from the tents and is very clean. We really enjoyed the communal dining experience. It was great to get to know the other guests and as there is maximum of only 12 guests at a time you never felt surrounded by too many people. Most of the time we felt we had the whole island to ourselves. The food that Lyndsey cooked for us each day was spectacular. We looked forward to each meal. He can do such amazing things with a BBQ and a gas burner. I can honestly say that Wilson Island is the most relaxing holiday I’ve ever had. It was paradise and will definitely return. I hope it never changes!

“A piece of paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

Wilson Island is a very unique location to visit ... it is remote, quiet and very natural. If you want a Delux Camping out in a Tent experience without grovelling around under canvas trying to setup camp then this is the place to go. The Island Hosts "Marg and Lindsay" are lovely and the entire setup is like nothing I have visited before!!!!! :) I dare you to put the limiting thoughts of Luxury Hotels needing concrete walls and floors and have a few nights out on Wilson Island for a very unique experience!

“Super cook on Wilson”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2012

Small resorts are all about the cook - great one and all is well, and in our case we had a veteran to the Reef cooking for us and meals were over the top great.
