Things To Do

Reset your internal clock to island time as you spend your holidays at Heron Island Resort. This 24-hectare coral cay brings you unlimited island fun! Take a guided nature walk into the sanctuary of seabirds. Filling the air with bird sounds akin to tiny avian laughter, the chatter of the seabirds are surprisingly therapeutic. Make sure to listen out when you stroll around the area.

Go stargazing or enjoy a romantic dinner by the beach. What better way to take pleasure in the panoramic views than by savouring the moment with a glass of champagne? At Heron Island Resort, more eco adventures and family activities await.

This is the second time that my husband and I have been to Heron (first was on our honeymoon) and we always told ourselves that when we had children, we would take them to Heron, too. And we are so glad that we did!
