Heron Island Resort

Kids stay and eat free!

Voyages Heron Island

Heron Island is perfect for kids, it is a natural coral cay, meaning you are actually on the reef itself. Kids can spot turtles, coral and reef fish right off the beach. They can enjoy a host of interesting and educational experiences on their own or even better, join in the fun and discovery of our Junior Rangers programme.

This is no ordinary kids club! Kids enjoy hands on fun and educational activities with one of our rangers as a guide. The programme was designed in conjunction with the University of Queensland Research Station located on the island. This nurtures a sense of exploration and conservation in kids.

While the kids are off exploring one of the natural wonders of the world you can go diving, snorkelling, bird watching or just relax and immerse yourself in reef life.
