Was lucky enough to see a manta ray on the first one sorry mum and an eagle ray on the second with a cheeky turtle playing around with us blowing bubbles. Of course, a big shout out to Andreas for pushing us to get on the boat and getting out there. Can honestly say this place is paradise if you want to get back down to earth and reconnect with nature.
A huge thanks to the staff for being so friendly and accommodating, to Paul for making his famous donuts! And to Joel for sneaking some profiteroles for breakfast! There is something adventurous about being in a seater propeller plane that makes the trip to and from the tiny coral cay feel much more remote than 80km off the Queensland coast. The trip across, in fine weather, provides fine views of Hervey Bay we went via Bundaberg and got to see the coast between the two towns and of the island.
The landing on the grass airstrip was thrilling but uneventful. Staff greeted guests at the landing strip and took charge of day visitors and those staying overnight and showed us where all the key facilities were and where to find details of daily activities. Our bags were taken to our room and were there by the time we'd checked in. The Reef room was basic and comfortable.

The bathroom had contemporary fittings that includes a good shower. The queen bed was a little bouncy but comfortable. There was a ceiling fan but no air-con. A kettle, 2 mugs, 2 wine glasses and 2 tumblers are provided plus a small fridge. As well as in-room tea and coffee there is free tea and coffee in the dining room. The front porch had chairs and a stool that doubled as a table.
A Sea Unto Itself
Lines with pegs are ready for wet swimmers. As well as the buffet breakfast, some mornings there is an omelette station in the area next to the dining room. We went on a glass bottom boat tour that included half an hour of snorkeling time. Having a guide on hand was helpful before going it alone. The water was choppy on the southern end of the western reef both times we went snorkeling there but that was where we saw a turtle and other guests reported manta ray sightings.
The sea conditions varied a lot throughout the day and the water was much flatter in the afternoon the three days we were there.
The corals are magnificent and there were lots of fish. On land there are various guided walks and talks. The behind the scenes tour was a highlight thanks to Chris whose knowledge and warm manner made for an entertaining glimpse at the technology that underlies the smooth operation of the resort. The guided reef walk was informative. The survival tour was a lot of fun and a good introduction to some of the island's desirable plants there are a number of introduced species they are working to eradicate.
The buffet breakfast and dinner, which is included in the room rate was very good and included lots of fresh ingredients, which are flown in daily.
The lunch menu which is not included has all the staples burgers, fish and chips, toasted sandwiches and three salads Greek, Caesar and pumpkin. There are always vegetarian and gluten free options.
