Our location on the southern tip of the Great Barrier Reef makes the Island easily accessible for visitors to South-East Queensland. The island has its own airstrip and we offer scenic flight transfers from Bundaberg (approx. 30mins*), Hervey Bay (approx 40mins*), Brisbane (approx 80mins*) and the Gold Coast (approx 100mins*) for day trippers and overnight guests. Our Reservations Team will book your flights in conjunction with your accommodation, please refer to our Booking Request page.
Lady Elliot Island has the only airstrip on the Great Barrier Reef. Our scenic flights are one of the highlights of the overall guest experience and all our visitors enjoy two scenic flights over the reef as part of their visit to our unique Island paradise.
There is no boat access to Lady Elliot Island due to our remote location, distance and time it would take to travel by boat to the outer edge of the outer southern Great Barrier Reef.
