Lady Elliot is a coral cay located on the southern tip of Australia’s iconic Great Barrier Reef, 80km north-east of Bundaberg and nestled between Fraser Island and Lady Musgrave Island. The Island is situated within a highly protected ’Green Zone’ of the Marine National Park and is a sanctuary for over 1,200 species of marine life.
