396878_num989892_600x600One of nature’s greatest journeys continues each year on Heron Island on the Southern Great Barrier Reef when, from September to March, the island becomes the breeding ground for the giant Loggerhead and Green sea turtles.

Regarded as a quintessential coral cay natural wonderland, Heron Island is both home and sanctuary for these giants of the sea. It is here where their life started and it is here where they return to lay their eggs in the exact same spot as they were hatched some 30 years earlier.

The Heron Island circle of life begins as the turtles lumber onto shore to lay their eggs and it continues as the hatchlings emerge and make their way down to the ocean to start their great journey. The Heron Island Turtle Season Escape has been created so that this natural phenomenon can be witnessed firsthand by our valued guests.

Turtle Season Escape commences from $477 twin share for three nights inclusive of accommodation, breakfast, snorkel trip, turtle talks and special turtle gift.  This package is available for sale until 31 March 2015 for travel between 6 October, 2014 and 31 March 2015.*conditions apply.

And, when our guests are not turtle watching, Heron Island provides a wonderful balance for them to choose how busy they want to be, or not! Snorkelling off the beach, diving at world renowned locations such as Heron Bommie, reef walks at low tide, sunset cruises, a lazy afternoon in the spa or simply reading a book on the pristine beaches.
