Heron Island Dive Site

Heron Island, Gladstone Area

Heron Island, on the Great barrier Reef off Gladstone, is a richly vegetated coral cay with an established resort, research station and Marine Parks ranger base. This is an important nesting ground for Green Turtles (October - March is turtle-breeding season), black noddy terns and wedge-tailed shearwaters. There are dozens of dive locations within 15 minutes of the harbour. Shore and off-shore snorkelling can be undertaken.
