To establish true loyalty, treat your top performers to the ultimate weekend away on Lizard Island, Australia’s most exclusive and luxurious island resort.

Lizard Island is just 150 miles north of Cairns on the stunning Great Barrier Reef, but is truly secluded from the rest of the world, offering delegates and incentive groups total relaxation, isolation and pure gratification.

With 24 powdery-white beaches and 40 villas and suites, conference delegates, incentive groups or just a few top executives can take advantage of Lizard Island’s resort facillities, enjoy talks at the Lizard Island Research Station, but more importantly relax and enjoy the luxury and location of the island.
A constant favourite in the ‘world’s best’ lists, Lizard Island was recently voted as having the Best Leisure Facilities by Conde Nast Traveller Magazine UK, in addition to making regular appearances on the Conde Nast Traveller Gold Lists.

Under new owners Delaware North Australia Parks & Resorts, who acquire Lizard Island in November last year along with four other Australian tourism icons, Lizard Island is inviting corporate groups and incentive organisers to book the entire island for their clients’ top executives and their partners.

Prices start from $168,160 for two nights’ exclusive use of the entire island, which includes 40 guest rooms across four distinct accommodation types – The Pavilion; 15 Sunset Point Villas; 18 Anchor Bay Suites and 6 Anchor Bay Rooms. The price also includes exclusive use of Osprey’s Restaurant and the Lodge Bar, allowing guests to indulge their palate with the finest local produce and contemporary cuisine.

Exclusive use of Lizard Island means guests have the entire island to themselves, and can enjoy snorkelling, diving, hiring their own motorised dinghies, or just taking to a sun lounger and relaxing.

Sensational diving opportunities abound, including the famous Cod Hole, where delegates will come face to face with a massive, yet curious Potato Cod swimming right up to inspect you with child-like curiosity. For divers, the island is only a 50-minute boat ride to the legendary Outer Great Barrier Reef.

Snorkellers are rewarded for little effort with coral gardens, brightly coloured tropical fish and giant clams just moments from the island's beaches. Discover secluded, pristine beaches by foot or by motorised dinghy with a gourmet picnic just for two.

Fishing enthusiasts can charter the boat Fascination for a day of exhilarating game fishing. The Ribbon Reefs near Lizard Island are renowned for some of the best big game fishing in the world, home to the impressive Black Marlin, as well as Tuna, Mackerel, Trevally and Swordfish.

The continental ledge off of Lizard Island is the largest breeding region of giant Black Marlin in the world and fishermen and fishing vessels from all over the world travel here eery year to experience the greatest in game fishing excitement.

Try bushwalking, sailing, a glass bottom boat trip, or perhaps reward top sellers with a pampering treatment at the Azure Spa.

Dining is one of Lizard Island’s many pleasures. Osprey's Restaurant embodies the resort's understated elegance. The menu, which changes daily, is fresh and creative, showcasing the finest local produce and freshest seafood – perfect for group events or private dinners for top executives.
