Reef Rangers & Babysitting

We are pleased to provide Babysitting and Junior Reef Rangers (Kids Club) facilities for younger children and trust that they find them both enjoyable and informative. Please advise our Reservations Team when making your booking if you would like to take advantage of these services during your stay.


Babysitting is available subject to staff availability at a cost of $45 per hour, for up to 2 children.

Please see Reception to book babysitters, giving a minimum of 24 hours’ notice prior to needing the service. Reception staff will arrange babysitting details, ie. pick up point, date of sitting, duration etc, and will fill out a babysitting roster with appropriate details.

Junior Reef Rangers

This is an educational activity for children between the ages of 5 and 12 years. It involves a 2 hour session with a guide conducting indoor and outdoor educational activities with a focus on conservation of our beautiful Great Barrier Reef.

Not only do the Reef Rangers enjoy fun, exciting and educational activities, it’s also a good chance for them to meet and share their holiday with other youngsters on the Island!

Reef Rangers Kids Club operates each afternoon during Queensland and New South Wales public school holidays. Session times are scheduled for 1:30pm to 3:30pm, however, these times are subject to change so please check our Daily Activities board or enquire at Reception once on the Island. The cost is $20.00 per child per 2 hour session valid to 31 March 2020.
