Welcome to Lizard Island
The five islands of the Lizard Island Group lie 33km off the coast about 100km north of Cooktown. Lizard, the main island, has rocky, mountainous terrain, glistening white beaches and spectacular fringing reefs for snorkelling and diving. Most of the island is national park and teeming with wildlife. Sumptuous accommodation and dining epitomise five-star luxury at the ultra-exclusive Lizard Island Resort, decimated by Cyclone Ita in April 2014 and exquisitely rebuilt and refurbished in 2015. There's limited bush camping at the island’s camp site. There are no shops on the island. Book air transfers to/from Cairns through the resort.
Daintree Air Services offers spectacular full-day tours from Cairns including gourmet lunch, snorkelling gear, transfers and a local guide to take you to some of the most magnificent spots in this pristine ecosystem.
