Honeymooners or couples just wanting an exquisite escape are particularly recommended the beautiful romantic Great Barrier Reef Islands of Lizard, Dunk, Hayman, Brampton, Peppers Palm Bay or Hamilton, the remote Robinson Crusoe experience of Haggerstone Island, the secluded and exclusive Orpheus Island. If diving or fishing are more your speed then Heron, Wilson, Lizard or Lady Elliot Islands are superb choices.

Hayman, Green Island, Orpheus, Bedarra, Peppers Palm Bay and Lizard Islands are the ones. While families will find the prices and facilities of South Molle Island, Dunk, Hamilton, Hayman, Daydream or Fitzroy make perfect sense for that family holiday in tropical paradise. Something in between? Hamilton Island, South Molle Island, Daydream Island Resort & Spa, or Long Island Resort, are ideal choices.
