Cruises from Lizard Island
Lizard Island, named after the numerous large but harmless lizards living there, is a national park in Queensland, Australia. It is situated 90 km north of Cooktown at the northern tip of Australia’s World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef. It is also the location of an award-winning and internationally famous resort. Lizard Island itself is fringed with spectacular coral reefs, and 24 powdery white beaches.
The Island is well known for its scuba diving and snorkelling. Coral reef gardens encircle the island where giant clams laze on the seabed and dazzling, coloured tropical fish keep watch. The island is also the closest point to the Cod Hole, one of the best known diving sites on the Great Barrier Reef.
