Lizard Island is one of a kind – nature’s amazing work of art. It is located right on the Great Barrier Reef in Australia and is a private paradise with 24 powdery white beaches just waiting to be explored. During his epic voyage of 1770, Captain James Cook climbed the peak on Lizard Island to chart a course out to sea through the maze of reefs which confronted him. Today there are many magnificent walks to be enjoyed on this island, and on at least one you can expect to glimpse a Monitor, the lizard after which the island was named. Lizard Island is renowned for its diving. At the world famous ‘Cod Hole,’ you can come face to face with a massive yet curious Potato Cod swimming right up to inspect you with child-like curiosity. You can also snorkel off a secluded beach to discover a garden of giant clams, some reputed to be over 120 years old.
