Some of the world's best reef diving and exotic
Just 72 Km north-east of Gladstone, Heron Island is a coral
cay located on the Great Barrier Reef. It's famous with divers from around the world for its marine life and
known as one of Australia's premier dive destinations. Here you can swim right off the beach to an endless
garden of coral where the waters are literally teeming with beautifully coloured fish and marine life. More than
30 dive sites are available, half of which are only 15 minutes from the beach. Because there is a deep sea
channel between Heron Island and Wistari Reef, the ability to explore the edge of the cay, while remaining in
calm waters, is unequalled. The reef experience of Heron is exclusively for guests so you won't see any day
