Great Barrier Reef Hotels

Most inhabited islands have just one main resort, typically offering a range of lodging types and prices. Choose island destinations based on your budget and the kind of vacation you want—active or relaxed, sociable or quiet, or a mix. Offerings range from luxurious enclaves with upscale facilities (Lizard, Orpheus, Bedarra, Hayman islands) to small, eco-focused retreats (Long Island) to activity-packed,

family-friendly resorts (Long, South Molle, Daydream, and Fitzroy islands). The more rustic, remote resorts may lack modern conveniences such as, telephones, televisions, and Internet access. Even on some Barrier Reef resorts, Internet connections can be slow and mobile phone coverage limited or nonexistent, and critters may infiltrate your room.
