Lady Elliot Island Eco Resort - Great Barrier Reef

We operate a small unpretentious 41 room Eco Resort on Lady Elliot Island which strives to provide guests with a genuine eco-tourism experience. It is our goal to provide guests with life changing moments and world class experiences through natural encounters both above and below the water and by the delivery of engaging and educational activities. We educate our guests on how to enjoy the Island’s fragile ecosystem with minimal impact and our Island Team are happy to share their knowledge about renewable technologies as the Island continues to introduce and expand sustainable eco initiatives. It is our goal that our guests take home more than just photos and memories, but also join us in our fight for conservation and sustainable management of the environment and natural resources, in particular the Great Barrier Reef.

Lady Elliot Island Eco Resort offers a range of comfortable accommodation options, with each suite, unit and cabin designed to minimise impact on the island while enriching guest’s experience of the seasonal wildlife. The Resort was established in 1984 when a series of prefabricated buildings were brought to the island and these buildings are still in use today. In keeping with the natural, eco-friendly lifestyle there are no telephones, television or radios and all rooms are fan-cooled. The rooms are simple but comfortable and have everything you need for a nice and relaxing holiday.

"I had the pleasure of visiting Lady Elliot Island to confirm for myself their excellent leadership in sustainable tourism. Not only are they walking the talk of conservation through tourism, but they are also serving as a model of best practices for other small island resorts around the world."
