WILSON ISLAND
Great Barrier Reef

“Wilson Island is a small coral cay that is the Great Barrier Reef as nature intended. Those that are drawn to Wilson Island will enjoy the natural beauty, its seclusion and the freedom from modern-day living are part of the appeal.

Wilson Island is a national park, with nesting green turtles and loggerhead turtles as well as birdlife playing a key role in the island’s natural calendar – of course these all happen in different months and not year round.

Dining on Wilson Island is one of the highlights of any stay. Our menus have a distinctive Australian feel, with a commitment to freshness, simplicity and variety.

Breakfast is a tropical buffet, with hot breakfasts cooked to order. Lunch is a delicious smorgasbord served in the Wilson Island Longhouse, or for a really special experience try a picnic on the beach.

Each evening begins with guests enjoying sunset drinks and canapés. Returning to The Longhouse you'll find the table set for a dinner party style gathering of friends, with light music playing, candles lit, and the Island Hosts making final preparations for the evening's dinner. Guests are encouraged to treat the Longhouse as their own home, helping themselves to the library, beverages and snacks as they please.

A Community Tent, with open sides, large comfortable day beds, a selection of magazines and binoculars provides guests the perfect place to relax, chill out, and enjoy the stunning ocean, reef and sunset views.”
