One of the most northerly islands of the Great Barrier Reef, this is perhaps also the most exceptional. Take a picnic hamper and motorised dinghy to explore one of twenty-four superb beaches with which the island has been blessed.

Anchor off a secluded beach, take a short swim and within minutes you will be floating over vivid underwater gardens where you can discover giant clams, many a metre long and more than a hundred years old.

Diving

Renowned for its diving, at the famous Cod Hole you’ll come face to face with a massive yet curious potato cod swimming right up to inspect you with childlike curiosity.

Exploring the island

The rocky, mountainous interior is excellent for bush walking rewarding you with panoramic views from Cook’s Look. It was here that Captain Cook once stood trying to chart a course through the maze of reefs which confronted him.

Accommodation

There are four different types of guestroom, from the simple yet elegantly furnished Anchor Bay rooms, set within tropical gardens, to the lavish Pavilion Suites perched high above the Coral Sea, which combine privacy with a spectacular wrap-around view of Anchor Bay, Osprey Island and Sunset Beach.

A private plunge pool, day bed and secluded beach area complete the picture. The entire island is a national park and is the ultimate place in which to relax and unwind, and is considered to be one of the most beautiful hideaways in Australia.
