During your next holiday disconnecting from the outside world and reconnecting with nature could be a reality with the Heron island in Australia. It is on the southern Great Barrier Reef and of course a paradise for ocean adventure seekers. Here is a list of things you could try out at Heron!
Evening snorkelling sessions
During high tides, you can have the best snorkelling moments on the Heron island. Certain hotels in Gladstone QLD are located a little away and if you are staying in one of those accommodations on your holiday, always have this as the first evening activity on your list! After snorkelling, watching the sunset from the jetty area can be spectacular!
If you are touring Heron Islands between December and February of the year, you can be lucky to see baby turtles waiting under the sand to make a break to the ocean. Have all your shopping done in the daytime and allocate your evenings to see this beautiful sight. If you are staying at Oaks Grand Gladstone, this will just be a matter stepping towards the beachside.
Heron is one of the best diving sites on the Great Barrier Reef. Even if you have not dived before, you can take the introductory session first and then be a pro to have a night dive too.
Taking a guided tour
This may sound too educational, but it is not. To see the actions taken by researchers to conserve and preserve the reef can be really interesting! This station is located at the University of Queensland and the research staff will be your guides throughout the tour.
