Haggerstone Island Rating: 3

Located approximately 600 km north of Cairns, Haggerstone Island is a secluded retreat adjacent to the isolated coast near the tip of Cape York. Offering the ultimate in privacy and relaxation, Haggerstone Island is just a few miles from the sprawling wonder of the northern Great Barrier Reef mainland coast. Accessible only by air from the neighbouring Hicks Island, Haggerstone is a truly unique destination.

The remote island is a wonderfully rare experience of small complexes of exotic timbre buildings, tropical gardens, dams and an orchard. The self-sustaining island is set in true wilderness country and displays nature at its best. Teeming with a range of marine and wild life, Haggerstone Island brings some of the world's most pristine coral gardens to your doorstep. Adjacent to the island you'll find the Outer Barrier Reef, home to one of the biggest Green Turtle rookeries in the world.

To continue that feeling of a remote paradise, Haggerstone Island only caters for a small number of guests at a time, generally from 8-10. However getting back to nature doesn't mean you have to miss out on all the creature comforts. On Haggerstone Island you'll live well, eat well and enjoy this unique base from which to relax and explore.

The lagoons, reefs and open ocean surrounding Haggerstone Island are an underwater wonderland of marine life, shipwrecks and WWII artefacts that are best explored snorkelling or scuba diving. With miles of pristine beaches, the ideal tropical climate, a tranquil and remote location with plenty of adventures to be had, Haggerstone Island is a fantastic experience perfectly complimented by fine cuisine, well-appointed accommodation not short on comfort.
