Lizard Island Group National Park

Lizard Island, Cook Area

Set in a turquoise sea, the six high islands and islets of this park are surrounded by coral reefs, fringed by mangroves and sandy beaches, and cloaked in grasslands, woodlands and wind-sheared heaths. The island group lies midway between the coast and the outer barrier reef, within the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area. Lizard, the main island, has several idyllic, sheltered, sandy beaches with easy access to picturesque coral and clam gardens.

Snorkel in the sheltered, shallow waters of Watsons Bay and discover the famed Clam Gardens. Following in the footsteps of the famous explorer, climb the steep track to Cook's Look for breath-taking views over the islands and reefs. Walk to Blue Lagoon on the other side of the island for secluded swimming and snorkelling. Bush camp near the beach at peaceful Watsons Bay. Learn about a tragic episode in the island's history at Mary Watson's cottage ruin. Look for the yellow-spotted monitor, for which Lizard Island is named, and birdwatch around the island's beaches and walking tracks. Visit the Lizard Island Research Station during their tour times and relax at the resort's Marlin Bar (not open every day).
