covid-19 update

as at 15 May 2020

After 50 days in caretaker mode, we’re excited to announce our re-open date!

Following the announcement of the Queensland Government’s latest roadmap in easing restrictions of COVID-19, Lady Elliot Island Eco Resort will be re-opening for overnight guests on Saturday 13th June (for travel within 250kms of any flight departure port; Gold Coast, Brisbane (Redcliffe), Hervey Bay and Bundaberg).

Day Trips from Hervey Bay and Bundaberg will also be available from Saturday 13th June.

From Friday 10th July, Day Tours from the Gold Coast and Brisbane will be available.

Our management team are working hard developing a COVIDSafe plan to ensure that all our operations comply with strict Queensland Health guidelines. For the foreseeable future, or until social distancing restrictions are lifted, we will be operating the resort at approximately 50% bed capacity. Our team and our guests health and safety is our main priority, and thanks to everyone’s awesome efforts and continued social distancing over the past two months, Australian businesses like ours are in a position to re-open. However, we cannot stress enough the importance for everyone to continue to follow all social distancing, hygiene practices and travel restrictions for your region to assist in reducing the risk of COVID-19 in Queensland and Australia!
For all guests travelling to Lady Elliot Island, approximately 7 days prior to your arrival we will send you a brief summary of our COVIDSafe protocols. 
Thank you to everyone for your patience and understanding during this challenging time. 
We look forward to seeing you soon on our beautiful slice of paradise on the Southern tip of the Great Barrier Reef!
