An amazing array of sea birds choose Lady Elliot Island, on the Great Barrier Reef, to mate and raise their young every year. Regular guided tours allow guests to learn about the delicate balance at play in this ecosystem from their migration to their more unique characteristics. The excellent close up opportunities for photographers is realised everyday during the season.
The island is a breeding and nesting ground for many species of tropical seabirds and wading birds. The crested terns lay their eggs in the open, while bridled terns and silver gulls prefer to nest under shrubs. Black-naped terns are also common on the island along with the spectacular brown boobies, lesser frigatebirds and a small colony of red tailed tropic birds.
Lady Elliot Island is a must-see for any avid bird enthusiast.
