Lizard Island is on the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland (Australia), about 48nm north of Cooktown and 130nm north of Cairns. It is part of the Lizard Island Group that also includes Palfrey Island.

Lizard Island is a granite island about 10 square kilometres in size, with three smaller islands nearby (Palfrey, South and Bird). Together these islands form the Lizard Island Group and their well-developed fringing reef encircles the 10 metre deep Blue Lagoon.

There is ample anchoring room inside the lagoon. The resort is currently closed for repairs following a cyclone.
