Lizard Island Resort - Great Barrier Reef

Coronavirus Update 

At Lizard Island on Queensland’s World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef, we have made some changes to operating dates for 2020 to best manage the current Coronavirus or COVID-19 pandemic.

Working with Queensland Health restrictions on travel to and from the region from interstate and overseas, Lizard Island has announced it will close between March 29 and May 29, 2020 to ensure the health of our guests and staff. 

We would like to encourage guests to consider postponing rather than cancelling their stay at Lizard Island. The luxury specialist team at Delaware North which owns Lizard Island, is on hand to offer advice and make amendments to all bookings over this period. Please feel free to phone the team on 1800 837 204 from within Australia or email on

This is just one wonderful Lizard Island fact that makes it like nowhere else. The hour flight from Cairns allows you to take in the true majesty and scale of the reef, and the resort is literally on the reef - no long boat rides are needed to enjoy one of the greatest natural wonders of the world.
