Lady Elliot Island

Ultimate guide (July 2024)
Lady Elliot is an island in Capricorn Group, Australia. The beach is not bad, but not very comfortable due to the broken corals. As for the coastal snorkeling, it is great. By the way, unlike the warmer tropical islands, corals don't die here after the Global Warming. There are also many turtles and birds everywhere, while whales can often be met in the water. Shore and seabed: sand, stones. [edit]
This island ranks #2 of the "Best islands in Capricorn Group"

Hotels [edit]

Lady Elliot Island Eco Resort is a three-star hotel with rooms' fares starting from about US$270 per night. The bungalows are rather basic, but the price tag is quite adequate for the isolated island location. Just realize, that this is not an upscale property.

How to get there [edit]

Fly to Gold Coast international airport (OOL) or fly to Brisbane international airport (BNE).

There are daily flights from Gold Coast (1 h 40 min), Brisbane (1 h 20 min), Hervey Bay/Fraser Coast (40 min) or Bundaberg (30 min) - all operated by Seair Pacific. The cost for the return flight is US$560 from Gold Coast/Brisbane or US$250 from Hervey Bay/Fraser Coast/Bundaberg.

When to go [edit]

The island of Lady Elliot has perfect weather conditions throughout the year. However, it is best to avoid the cold period (from May to August) and the rainy season (from January to March).
