Welcome to Lady Elliot Island

Lady Elliot Island is a coral cay located at the southern tip of the World Heritage Listed Great Barrier Reef.

Situated within a highly protected ‘Green Zone’ the coral cay is a sanctuary for over 1,200 species of marine life and is known for its abundance of manta rays, turtles, amazing array of spectacular marine life and unspoilt coral reef. Visit our Flora, Fauna and Marine Life page for more information about the Great Barrier Reef and the Islands history, flora and fauna.

The Lady Elliot Island Eco Resort is a family run and operated eco-tourism business. Peter Gash, family and several partners have held the lease from the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority to operate the resort since 2005. Since this time, enormous strides have been made to introduce sustainable initiatives to convert the resort to renewable energy with the goal to be 100% renewable by 2020. To read more on the resort’s sustainable initiatives please visit our sustainability page.

As guests to our Island we ask that you read and commit to our Sustainability Pledge so together we can make a difference and protect our beautiful Island.
