Haggerstone Island

Haggerstone Island is located on the Great Barrier Reef, about 600 kilometres north of Cairns alongside the rugged Cape York Peninsula. It is an exclusive island retreat where you can enjoy the beauty of nature and do as little or as much as you like.

A unique and special place, Haggerstone is a private island that caters for a small number of guests willing to explore and experience the surrounding wilderness. The Guesthouse is set in a small complex of tropical timber buildings, gardens, orchards and dams. The island is teeming with fish and is surrounded by some of the most magnificent coral gardens in the world. Haggerstone Island also harbours a dense and varied bird population.

Guests will be amazed by the marine life on Haggerstone. Exploring shipwrecks, beach combing for World War Two artefacts, snorkelling and fishing are complemented by a superb yet simple mouth watering cuisine featuring all fresh natural foods. The incredible remoteness of Haggerstone and the simplicity of island life ensures this is one of Australia's most unforgettable experiences.

Two clear water lagoons just off Haggerstone's beach put beautiful coral gardens right on your doorstep. Also close by they have discovered an 1840s shipwreck in a shallow reef garden. The utter remoteness of the location ensures that the marine life is prolific. Adjacent to Haggerstone on the Outer Barrier Reef is one of the largest Green Turtle rookeries in the world, and turtles are abundant in the waters off Haggerstone.

Haggerstone Island has it all, miles of pristine white beaches, the perfect tropical climate, adventurous exploration, remoteness and isolation.
