We have received the first official assessment report on the condition of buildings, infrastructure and safety of immediate environs surrounding the resort, it is evident that Lizard Island will not reopen in the short term. An initial estimate at this time will see the resort closed until late 2014 however we will keep you updated as we learn more, following further assessments in the coming weeks.
Lizard Island is a ruggedly beautiful island on the northern Great Barrier Reef in Tropical North Queensland. Lizard boasts 24 pristine beaches that range from white sand to rocky escarpments and easy access to some of the best diving in the Great Barrier Reef.
Lizard Island is renowned for its scuba diving and snorkelling and is surrounded by coral reefs, ribbon and lagoon reefs. But its Lizard Island's close proximity to one of the best known diving sites in the Great Barrier Reef, Cod Hole, that distinguishes it from many other reef islands.
Lizard Island can also be recognised as being home to one of Australia's most premier resorts: Lizard Island. It's one of Australia's northernmost island resorts, where design works in harmony with the island's spectacular natural beauty. This premium property caters for a maximum of just 80 guests.
There is also a campground at the national park at the northern end of Watson Bay.
And when you have the chance, make sure to take one of the many magnificent walks on the island. On at least one you can expect to glimpse a Monitor, the lizard after which Lizard Island was originally named.
