Lizard Island is back on the map in the Great Barrier Reef, reopening in June 2015. Lizard is the most northern resort in tropical Queensland, and apart from 24 white sand beaches, it boasts a lagoon and a National Park covering over a thousand hectares. The 40 luxurious suites are all spectacular, as is the five-star cuisine available at the beautiful Salt Water Restaurant, the ambience at the new Driftwood Bar and the range of pampering available in the Essentia Day Spa. Explore the Reef, have a picnic on a secluded beach, watch the sunset over a degustation dinner, go for a paddle in a glass-bottom kayak or just laze by the pool. It has been a long time coming, but the Island will be worth the wait.
