Australia's Island Resorts

Australia’s Coral Sea coastline boasts some of the most beautiful island resorts in the world. Throughout the Great Barrier Reef, they offer fine white sand beaches and crystal clear waters for the perfect holiday retreat.

The interior of most islands is natural tropical rainforest and many of the romantic resorts offer sumptuous accommodation, swimming pools, fine dining and a host of activities.

Access to the islands is by boat or sometimes helicopter and most provide excursions to the Reef, as well as snorkelling from the shore.
