The Lady Elliot Island Great Barrier Reef all-inclusive Day Trip is the only one of its kind in Australia. The visit allows you to view one of the most pristine sections of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef from the air as well as from above and below the water all in one day! Our location on the southern tip of the Great Barrier Reef makes the Island easily accessible for visitors to South-East Queensland.

The Great Barrier Reef Day Trip departs from Agnes Water/1770 (subject to terms & conditions below). Enjoy a gorgeous scenic flight en route to Lady Elliot Island Eco Resort over the spectacular Southern Great Barrier Reef taking in some of the Bunker Group Islands including Fair Fax and Lady Musgrave Island.

You will be greeted upon arrival and given a brief island orientation tour before exploring the island at your leisure. You will be fitted out with snorkel equipment before joining a glass bottom boat/guided snorkel tour to explore the reef where you will come face to face with a large variety of coral and brilliantly coloured fish, and may even encounter turtles, dolphins and our resident manta rays. A buffet lunch is served in the restaurant, and you can participate in one of the island’s guided activities after lunch or spend the rest of the afternoon snorkelling or relaxing.
