Lizard Island announces school holidays family time

The upcoming July school holidays are set to be fun for the whole family, as the exclusive Queensland resort Lizard Island has announced a special Families Time package promising relaxed, barefoot luxury and an unforgettable holiday for everyone.

Running over the dates June 26 – July 11, 2021 inclusive, Family Time will see the usual children’s age limit waived, and instead the resort will welcome families with children aged three and over.

The three-night Family Time package includes special children’s rates and a dedicated Junior Rangers program that includes fun and educational activities centred around the Great Barrier Reef with treasure hunts, arts and crafts, snorkelling lessons and kids’ Citizen Science activities designed to be both fun and educational.

The Essentia Day Spa has created a special menu for pampering younger guests and the chef has created a menu of fun but nutritious meals for the junior five-star guests, catering to their younger tastes while also offering them their own slice of gourmet dining, fit for a luxurious island resort.

Bigger kids can also have access to the resort’s great range of non-motorised marine gear including clear-view kayaks and stand-up paddleboards, while families can take off with a gourmet picnic hamper to set up their own private camp on one of Lizard Island’s 24 white-sanded beaches.

Family-friendly tours take to crystal-clear waters for an up-close encounter with Lizard Island’s turtles or snorkelling the marine reefs for the chance to see giant clams, vibrant corals and a kaleidoscope of tropical fish including Simon, the resident grouper.

Rates on the Family Time package start at $5085* per room based on twin share accommodation for one adult staying with one child. Families staying on the package enjoy all dining and beverages, plus a range of marine activities, with the in-suite bar restocked daily.

Lizard Island is the northernmost island on the World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef. With just 40 guest suites and villas offering direct access to more than 20 white-sanded beaches, an escape to Lizard Island is a luxuriously exclusive experience. Guests venture to remote snorkelling and diving spots on the inner and outer reefs where hundreds of vibrant fish and coral species thrive. Mountain hikes offer panoramic views of the reef while the Australian Museum Lizard Island Research Station offers a fascinating insight into the day-to-day conservation of Lizard Island’s incredible natural environment.
