BRONZE AWARD FOR ECOTOURISM
We are excited to announce our bronze placing in the Steve Irwin Award for Ecotourism at the 2018 Queensland Tourism Awards. We couldn’t have achieved this without our team and our loyal guests. Sustainability is at the core of our business and we will continue to strive for best practice in ecotourism in the future.
Come and witness the magic of turtle season on Lady Elliot Island. Between November to March Green and Loggerhead turtles come ashore to lay their eggs. Approximately 8 weeks later between January to April turtle hatchlings emerge from their sand nest to begin their life long journey. Join our complimentary turtle talks/walks during your visit to learn more about these incredible creatures!
