Wilson Island - Wilson Island Resort

Wilson Island

Wilson Island Resort is a tiny coral cay located just 40 minutes from Voyages Heron Island. A divine sweep of castor sugar sands that is home to turtles and birds, Wilson is both part of the Great Barrier Reef and surrounded by it. Its pristine waters host an unimaginable variety of marine life including colourful coral and fish, with some of the best snorkelling just off the beach. Offering designer-inspired tented accommodation, Wilson provides just 12 guests with access to the magnificent reef and beach environments, including rare turtle and bird breeding grounds. A true communion with nature is at the core of the Wilson Island experience- to live and enjoy life as a beachcomber. Days can be filled snorkelling and exploring the island, in-season watching turtles and birds nesting and the birth of hatchlings, or simply lazing in a hammock. Wilson Island Resort is the Great Barrier Reef as nature intended.
